GOODBYE, OCTAVIA

One of my favorite authors of all time has died. Check out Octavia Butler:

A true genius and a really awesome person too. I'm sad that she's gone, and also that there will be no more output.

Yeah, I'm still on about Octavia. She described herself this way: "comfortably asocial--a hermit in the middle of Seattle--a pessimist if I'm not careful, a feminist, a Black, a former Baptist, an oil-and-water combination of ambition, laziness, insecurity, certainty, and drive."
Anyone who claims to be insecure and certain simultaneously is all right with me.

Good idea, if I can figure out a way to do her justice. Thanks.
