Added to the rolls of those that passed away this weekend.
Octavia E. Butler
Sci Fi writer, MacArthur Genius grant winner... And as she wrote.
"I'm a 53-year-old writer who can remember being a 10-year-old writer and who expects someday to be an 80-year-old writer. I'm also comfortably asocial -- a hermit in the middle of Seattle -- 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."
