A light has gone out in the SF world

Octavia Butler, one of my favorite authors, passed away this weekend. She was only 58 years old. She fell on the ice outside her home and hit her head.

My favorite Butler novel is Kindred. But I was rivetted by the Patternmaster series as well.

Octavia Butler's fiction was thought provoking and very well written. She will be sorely missed by the SF community.
