Happy birthday to thewordoffred today, and happy early birthdays to lovefromgirl and artwhisperer. I hope you have wonderful years to come.

The Village Voice has a new tribute article on science fiction pioneer Octavia Butler, who died on February 25 at the age of 58. A recent interview with Butler is now available via podcast from Dragon Page.

For other tributes to Butler, see the following:

from The Washington Post
from The New York Times
from Tyler Cowen for Slate

"Any Change may bear seeds of benefit.

Any Chance may bear seeds of harm.
God is infinitely malleable.
God is Change."
-Octavia Butler, Parable of the Sower
