Description:

SIGNED first edition - First paperback printing. INSCRIBED by Butler on the title page to a professor who taught a course in science fiction for many years. A prequel to Butler's Patternist novels, in which Doro meets another immortal whom he cannot control. Butler, who was the first "science fiction writer" to receive the prestigious MacArthur "genius" award, uses science fiction to explore the reality of slavery, and to examine how the past reaches into, and influences the present. 324 pp. Very good overall - slight spine slant, usual toning to the pages, stamp of previous owner (the professor to whom this was inscribed) inside the front cover. Uncommon signed, and especially with this interesting association. Bookseller Inventory #

About the Author: Octavia E. Butler was the first black woman to come to international prominence as a science fiction writer. Incorporating powerful, spare language and rich, well-developed characters, her work tackled race, gender, religion, poverty, power, politics, and science in a way that touched readers of all backgrounds. Butler was a towering figure in life and in her art and the world noticed; highly acclaimed by reviewers, she received numerous awards, including a MacArthur "genius" grant, both the Hugo and Nebula awards, the Langston Hughes Medal, as well as a PEN Lifetime Achievement award.
