Praise

“Butler’s wide-ranging career as one of the earliest successful African American sci-fi writers is on full display in a capacious new collection from the Library of America . . . allowing both fans of Butler and those unfamiliar with her work to gain an impressively broad view of her oeuvre. . . . Perhaps most important, this collection presents some of Butler’s most overtly race-conscious fiction, arriving at a time when the red scar of racism is arguably more visible than it has ever been this century, allowing the anthology to become a part of the country’s urgent reflection on the astonishing depths of its racist past and present. . . . [America] needs her blunt but empathetic vision more than ever.”
—Gabrielle Bellot, Bookforum

“The collection’s variety reveals the clarity of purpose in a body of work that ranged broadly among species, genres, and millennia. Butler’s great subject was intimate power, of the kind that transforms relationships into fulcrums of collective destiny.” 
Julian LucasThe New Yorker
