Octavia Butler, 1947 - 2006

Octavia Butler, 1947-2006: Sci-fi writer a gifted pioneer in white, male domain: "'It is a cliche to say that she was too good a soul, but it's true. What she really conveyed in her writing was the deep pain she felt about the injustices around her. All of it was a metaphor for war, poverty, power struggles and discrimination. All of that hurt her very deeply, but her gift was that she could use words for the pain and make the world better.'
