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