Conversations with Octavia Butler

Octavia Butler (1947-2006) is one of my favorite authors. Her work was unique and provided an afrocentric view of science fiction. I'm pleased to see that many of her interviews from 1980 until just before her sudden death in 2006 have been gathered together into a book, 'Conversations with Octavia Butler'.

I plan to read this book.




Are you a science fiction fan? If so, what are your views on Octavia Butler and her works?

very good! we will be purchasing this as my partner is a HUGE Octavia Butler Fan!
Her death was sudden and sad...she had been sickly for a while and i believe she fell outside....I'm very glad that she had the courage to listen and live her vision, dream and the drummer that was for her...she opened so many doors for many to follow...

WisdomTeachMe - I'm looking forward to reading the book. I haven't been reading as much in recent weeks and months. Octavia may be just the inspiration that I need to get back into it...
