...I plan on reading some Octavia Butler...
I recently listened to the unabridged audios of Parable of the Sower and Parable of the Talents. Amazing, simply amazing. It's a damn shame Butler didn't live to complete this trilogy. What she finished is staggeringly good. Writing in the early '90's, Butler saw what America was turning into with a clarity that took my breath away. I deeply mourn her loss.

Parable of the Sower was read by Lynne Thigpen, who simply IS Olamina.The readers of Talents were OK, but unsatisfying after Thigpen's virtuosity.
