I have a Powerpoint presentation that I created for a lecture last semester and thought I'd share it with everyone:

This is the first time I uploaded a file so if anyone has problems opening the link, let me know.

Ayana J., is that your site over at OctaviaButler.net? Great-looking site, regardless of who owns it. :)
Comment by Sharon A on August 15, 2011 at 5:40pm
My intro to Ms. Butler was Kindred in a college humanities class.  The instructor was an outside of the box teacher that provided opportunities for students to experience things beyond the norm - and that totally describes Ms. Butler's writings.  Ms. Butler's writing style was unlike any other I had read and I was totally immersed in the story from the first line.  Thanks for creating this thread.  She is owed this and more for her contributions to science fiction - and especially to Black Science Fiction!

This comment is so random, but Octavia E. Butler is one of those authors that hold so much symbolic value to me--beyond their writing--that I find that I am a little more joyful, feel a little more possible whenever I see her name.   It's like seeing or smelling chocolate, you already know it's going to be good ;-)  All that's to say, thanks Mark for creating this new group.

This is a great site. Octavia Butler did an interview with NPR back in 2001. I've kept it on my bookmarks and thought I'd share it with you:

SKYCITY TALKRADIO

THE UNDERGROUND BY ROXANNE BLAND

Life as alpha of a werewolf pack is anything but predictable. But even Parker Berenson is surprised by the latest twist: he’s fallen in love with a space alien. Problem is, he suspects Melera, his sexy new flame, might be the serial killer terrorizing Seattle. Or maybe she isn’t. After all, just because she’s an interstellar assassin doesn’t mean she’s guilty.
