There's a reason Octavia Butler was the first science fiction writer to win the coveted MacArthur "Genius Grant" in 1995: she wrote it all! Biologically based SF and dystopian social futures. Short stories, standalone novels, duologies, and trilogies. Come find out why you need to be reading this woman's timeless work.
