Octavia Butler

Steven Barnes has a blog entry reporting that SF writer Octavia Butler has died. I don’t know anything else about it at the moment than that, but I thought I would pass the information along. When/if there is other verification of this news, I’ll note it.

Update, 4pm: Blogger Edward Champion writes that he called the King County, WA coroner’s office, which confirmed Ms. Butler’s death. Still waiting for an official news story, but I rather deeply doubt either Barnes or Champion is incorrect at this point.

  1. They announced it at Potlatch this morning. She taught our Clarion West class this summer. We were very lucky.
