This past week's #litereads pick for the #halloweenreads #octoberreads season (our final as part of our spooky fall reads) was Bloodchild by Octavia E. Butler. This scifi modern classic story is a fascinating read that deals with an alien culture, pregnancy, love, and coming of age. I definitely enjoyed it, and you can read my full review in the link below.

So I was glad I didn‘t eat during lunch today when I read the first short story, Bloodchild. It‘s about how humans pay rent on another planet where we‘re kept on a Preserve, and bonded with this wormlike species who is all to eager to give us sterilized eggs to suck on to enter hallucinatory dreams. The main character, a boy, is promised to an alien worm who in the middle of the story basically helps a man give birth to alien worm children by👇🏼
