Octavia Estelle Butler, 1947-2006

Octavia was one of our instructors at Clarion West 1999. She had so many books left in her, this is a real loss.

In Dorothy Hewett's play, The Chapel Perilous, a character says: "I had a tremendous world in my head and more than three-quarters of it will be buried with me."
