I just heard

Science Fiction author Octavia E. Butler has died at age 58. She died last week, but I just heard about it on All Things Considered.

Prodigy is, at its essence,
adaptability and persistent,
positive obsession. Without
persistence, what remains is an
enthusiasm of the moment. Without
adaptability, what remains may
be channeled into destructive
fanaticism. Without positive
obsession, there is nothing at all.


-Octavia E. Butler




I have a lot to say about her, but I can't bring my self to compose anything just now. You can find a number of fine rememberences on her website: http://www.sfwa.org/members/butler/
