Octavia Butler, R.I.P.

If you've never read this amazing writer, then you've got a treat ahead of you! I don't remember when I first read her novels but I've re-read them and recommended them repeatedly. I discovered this weekend that she died after a fall. Only 58 years old. Damn.

Here's the obit from the Seattle Post Intelligencer.

If you haven't read, Butler, a great book to read first is Kindred.
