[Want to read📚] Parable of the Sower by Octavia E. Butler

Intrigued by how so many authors kinda predicted our current predicament uncannily.

From The Washington Post via Apple News this morning:

A 1993 dystopian novel imagined the world in 2024. It’s eerily accurate.
Octavia Butler’s ‘Parable of the Sower’ predicted devastating climate change, inequality, space travel and ‘Make America great again’

  1. @starrwulfe I keep hearing amazing things about this book. Octavia E Butler is sort of a legend in SFF circles (at least the ones that aren’t dominated completely by cishet white men) and I sadly have somehow missed out on this.

  2. @mercymorbid I’m pretty lucky to have some well-read family members who have shelves (physical and virtual) filled with Black authors so I kept hearing about this one on and off from my auntie, but never in this light. Definitely moved up a bunch of slots in my “gotta read” list.
