I was very sorry to hear of the passing of Octavia Butler, a well-recognized science fiction writer. I love this quote, the way she described herself:
a pessimist if I’m not careful, a feminist, a black, a former Baptist, an oil-and-water combination of ambition, laziness, insecurity, certainty, and drive.
Except for the race, I fit that description myself. Maybe that’s why her books were so poignant and thought-provoking to me.
