Deceased: Octavia Butler (1947 - 2006)

While at Potlatch 15, the news came in that Octavia Butler died last night or this morning. Exact details are a little sketchy, but there was a stroke involved, possibly a fall, and death at the hospital where they failed to revive her.

I'll post links to more information and obituaries as they come out.

I think everyone knows the importance of Octavia Butler on this field.

Steven Barnes has some thoughts in his blog, and the Seattle Post Intelligencer has a much better obituary than the previous link from the Seattle Times.
