That is terrible. She was my favorite novelist. We should have a party for her.

Parable of the Sower and the followup are must read. I read her and knew I wasn't crazy.

I'm currently going back through Kazembe's full interview with Octavia Butler, and it will be posted before the end of the weekend. This was edited for publication in The Indypendent, where space is a major concern. Since this was perhaps her last published interview, it seems worth bringing it out unabridged.
