R.I.P., Octavia Butler

For those who haven't heard: sf writer Octavia E. Butler died on Saturday, age 58.

Here are some relevant links (I haven't read/heard all of these yet, so can't vouch for the quality of all of them):

In that author bio, Butler wrote: "I'm a 53-year-old writer who can remember being a 10-year-old writer and who expects someday to be an 80-year-old writer." I'm sad she won't get that chance.
