Sunday, November 13, 2005Science Fiction Writer, Octavia Butler
To me, Octavia Butler is a Godess. She is by far one of the best Sci-Fi writers who ever lived.
The Washington Post has called Octavia Butler “one of the finest voices in fiction period. A master storyteller who casts an unflinching eye on racism, sexism, poverty and ignorance and lets the reader see the terror and beauty of human nature.” Octavia has described herself as an outsider, and "a pessimist, a feminist always, a Black, a quiet egoist, a former Baptist, and an oil-and-water combination of ambition, laziness, insecurity, certainty, and drive."
