I read this literary biography about Octavia E. Butler on the heels of finishing KINDRED, my first Butler book. I learned so much! I had no idea Butler began writing as a teen, religiously used her middle initial, and was obsessed with trying to write bestsellers. With her papers newly available at the Huntington archive, I'm excited about the future of Butler studies. #ReadUP #womenshistorymonth

OCTAVIA E. BUTLER by Gerry Canavan is part biography, part literary analysis of one of science fiction's giants. While it's accessible to readers unfamiliar with Butler's work, fans are likely to get more out of it.

#WWW #recommendsday Octavia Butler!!!! I adore Octavia Butler and everything she wrote and wanted to write. She is definitely in the gone-too-soon category. Such a visionary and radical thinker. I can't say enough good about her. I am just starting this biography of her from #netgalley - I'll let you know how it goes. 😍📚👑
