Thanx for that, on subject of the pattern master series, I've always been surprised no one made a movie based on that.

@Alicia You're welcome! Glad so many of us love her.

@Michael I believe you have to write the publisher of the copyrighted material expressing exactly how you intend to use the material. Here is a resource that may be helpful to you:

If you are simply making a vlog, parody or review of copyrighted material, you won't need any permissions (as seen on youtube). Hope that helps!

This question is for anybody who cares to respond(in otherwords, please, please respond)My 3 favorite books by Ms. Butler are the Patternmaster series, if someone wants to write or make videos based on that legally who do you see to get permission??

@Steve I'm so glad you know who she was now, and still is through her work.

@W&DM Isn't it amazing that someone can be so talented and wise but remain humble? It speaks to her character and also to why she was a writer. She was not a very social person. She was a self-proclaimed hermit and simply did what she loved to do. Holding her own with the boys, haha.

A dignified " affirmative action" member of the panel ( Black and female) who is the direct contrast to one like Harlan Ellison, talented and arrogant at the same time.

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.
