RIP Octavia Butler

Science Fiction writer Octavia Butler died after a fall outside of her Seattle home.


I, for one, will miss her writing greatly. Her imagination stretched in directions no one else went. She took us with her, and showed us new places, gave us new quandries, expanded the horizons of our minds. There was no one else who could have written the books that she wrote.

I feel a burning need to go to the library and start rereading.
