My favorite science fiction author too! In fact my screen name was inspired by Lilith's Brood. If you enjoyed that you should definitely check out Seed to Harvest.

The only book I've read of hers is Kindred, and I liked it. I may have to check out some of her other stuff.

I'm reading my first Octavia Butler book (Kindred) and I love it. Does anyone have other suggestions. If you like Octavia Butler, you'll like Tananarive Due also. I've read all of her books, a few of them twice. I love her!

Love Octavia Butler! She is my SF idol. I will try Tananarive (anyone know how to pronounce that?) Due.

I'll have to read Lilith's Brood. I've read Kindred, The Parable of the Sower, and the Parable of Talents (all great!). I tried to read Mind of my Mind, but I just can't get into it. It's a little too abstract for me. I'll have to try it again another time (I bought it).

Thank so much for recommending My soul to keep it was an awesome book. I also read the other two books in the series I can not wait for the next one to come out. Tananarive is a great writer !

Tananarive is pronounced exactly how it's spelled 'Tah-nah-nah-reeve'. I've listened to a few interviews of hers. My Soul to Keep, The Living Blood, Blood Colony....all great books. Joplins Ghost and Good House are great too. I just love her style. I love that she incorporates true history into the stories too. If you look up Lalibela, those churches are real. The Scott Joplin stories are real. I would love to meet her.
