Speculative fiction writer Octavia Butler died in 2006, but two unpublished stories discovered in her archives were recently released as an e-book, called Unexpected Stories. 
In her review of the book, K. Tempest Bradford writes:

In both stories Butler is able to create a whole world and a whole history out of very few words, by centering them on women who suffer no illusions about the worlds and circumstances they live in. She addresses race and class head-on as well as in metaphorical terms. And as Walter Mosley points out in his introduction, she was doing this “[l]ong before [she] changed the face of science and speculative fiction, the landscape of the potentials of literature.”


You cannot see me, but I am doing the Dance of Joy. It involves lots of bouncing around on my toes and making big sweeping arm gestures. And grinning.

Had to reblog this cus Petra also has a Dance of Joy!!! ‘Cept her’s is more of a butt wiggle. Either way, I’m pretty sure she put it to work when she heard about this book coming out.

I have been doing sort of freelance secretarial work, as of late..which is good, I need the experience and it’s awesome to get paid for things I would normally do as a favor or something. I keep meaning to get on tumblr and write more, but sleep always wins.

oh, and I’ve been deliberately dragging out Natalie Goldberg’s Writing down the Bones, they’re more of a collection of essays about her writing journeys, what she has learned, with a Buddhist leaning, I’ve noted a few quotes from some of them, and I think it’s an insightful read, that can be used for much more than writing. maybe I’ll post those tomorrow. I’m deep in the middle-ish part of NOS4A2, and it’s pretty cool :D I read Heart shaped Box  a while ago and liked it immensely, and I’ve been waiting to read NOS4A2 ever since.

Andrew Clemens (1857-1894) was an artist from Iowa who spent a large part of his life experimenting with sand. Stricken with encephalitis (an inflammation of the brain) at the age of five, he was completely deaf and nearly mute, but that didn’t stop him from collecting multi-colored sands to create amazingly intricate designs without the use of any glue or adhesive.
