LadyMsGee and The Gribshnobler are joined by special guest Professor Gerry Canavan, author of Masters of Science Fiction: Octavia E. Butler. We discuss Parable of the Talents, sequel to dystopian science fiction novel Parable of the Sower, along with Butler's life and work in general. Stick around until the end for some mentions of Margaret Atwood, Ken Liu, Cixin Liu, and Isaac Asimov.  We also feature some Butler inspired music from T. C.
