Haven’t really talked about this much in these parts, but I’ve been working on a second book this year! This one is in honour of Octavia Butler, a groundbreaking science fiction writer: amazing stories, provocative ideas, and (it appears) the first African-American woman to make a living from science fiction. And this is the cover!!
The book comprises almost 50 original pieces – letters and essays – to and about Butler, encompassing a bunch of different issues and themes and responses. You can see the list of contributors at the Twelfth Planet Press site. It will also include some reprinted material.
I’m really pleased with how the book has developed, and I am in love with the cover.
