Mourning Butler

This blog posts an essay by Octaia Butler.

I'm still mourning for her. I'm not this upset when blood relatives die.

On the other hand, frankly? The world will do just fine without most of my blood relatives. We needed Octavia Butler.

I wish that I had known her works sooner. My Lit theory professor, said that she was one of the most important and best sci fic novelists, Coming from him, that was a big compliment. I wish she had taken better care of herself, or had inherited better genetics, or had not been the product of our society where unhealthy eating eventual wears out the heart, I wish she had not died.
