Kindred by Octavia E. Butler


This powerful novel about a modern black woman transported back in time to a slave plantation in the antebellum South is the perfect introduction to Butler's work and perspectives for those not usually enamored of science fiction. . .A harrowing, haunting story."  -John Marshall, Seattle Post-Intelligencer

"Kindred is as much a novel of psychological horror as it is a novel of science fiction . . .a work of art whose individual accomplishment defies categorization." -Barbara Strickland, The Austin Chronicle

"Butler's literary craftsmanship is superb." -Washington Post Book World

"One of the most original, thought-provoking works examining race and identity." -Lynell George, Los Angeles Times
