Octavia Butler

Most of you will know by now that Octavia Butler, the SF writer, died this weekend. Thanks to coalescent and to nwhyte for a link to this obituary, which is worth a read.

'What she really conveyed in her writing was the deep pain she felt about the injustices around her...
All of that hurt her very deeply, but her gift was that she could use words for the pain and make the world better.''

    At the moment I have set up this journal so that only friends can comment. I hate doing this, but I was just getting too much Russian spam.
