OCTAVIA BUTLER NOVELS RANKED

By how they rocked me to my core
  1. Lilith's Brood Omnibus
    Truly floored me. An exodus from Earth's collapse to it's rebirth is shocking, actualized and beautiful, and I recommend it to everyone
  2. Earthseed Omnibus
    Rings eerily close to home. More of a classic dystopian novel but one that (refreshingly even amongst the horror) includes Black/Latino/Asian perspectives.
  3. Kindred
    Probably the most digestible, but for a black American an exercise in living your history firsthand
