Octavia Butler conference

If you're an Octavia Butler fan, this is a must-see.  A group of excellent to great authors and editors talk about memories of Butler and her work for two hours.

Octavia was a fine writer whose prose flowed easily and sketched realistic characters.  She was a mentor to Sheree Renee Thomas and I at Clarion West (Nisi was often in attendance, sitting in to listen to the masters of the craft).  Butler was inspirational, making writing all feel real and possible.
