February 27, 2006: Octavia Butler

Science fiction author Octavia Butler died on Saturday, February 25, following an apparent stroke.

Winner of one Nebula and two Hugo awards, Butler is probably best known for the novella "Bloodchild" and the Xenogenesis series. She once introduced herself, "I'm a 53-year-old writer who can remember being a 10-year-old writer and who expects someday to be an 80-year-old writer." Tragically, she didn't make it.
