Blurb/Shorttext:
Author of 12 novels, Hugo and Nebula award-winning novelist Octavia Butler, is readily identified as an African American feminist and science fiction writer. In selected works by Butler, enough evidence exists to support the argument that Butler is a California regionalist writer as well. Born and raised in Pasadena, California, the author herself sees no special significance in the California setting in some of her work, and makes the point that not all her stories are set in California—or even on earth. The works chosen for analysis with regard to the significance of setting are Kindred, Clay’s Ark, Parable of the Sower and Parable of the Talents, all of which feature futurism, images, trends, and landmarks unique to California. Octavia Estelle Butler died Friday February 24, 2006 at Northwest Hospital after a fall at her home in Lake Forest Park, Washington. She was 58.
