Short Excerpt from My Book Up at University of Illinois Press: “Making America Great Again with Octavia Butler”
I never got around to making a long link post this weekend, so just in case you missed it I wanted to flag that a short excerpt from my book (reskinned around the recent election) is up now at the University of Illinois Press blog: “Making America Great Again with Octavia Butler.” While the frame of this version of the material is now about Trump, the real meat of this thing is about Reagan, and about Butler’s special contempt for him not just during his presidency but across the remainder of her life.
I also talk a bit about what is probably my favorite of her unfinished novels, Paracelete. Check it out!
And don’t forget to buy the whole book, which is available now!
