A perfect slice of Octavia E. Butler’s incredible storytelling, written in 1970 at the Clarion Writer’s Workshop, this science-fiction gem serves us the familiar, extraordinary, diabolical, and triumphant. It’s a story that makes one hunger for more of Ms. Butler’s work, her words, and a future, as yet, unwritten.
 
“I had started something that I wasn’t going to let the organization stop. Partly because my kids deserved a chance. And partly because they were going to settle a lot of scores for me and a few million other people … someday.”
 
Why We Chose This Story: A classic from a master of her genre, Childfinder is an origin story unto itself and a precursor to so much of Butler’s writing. We believe it is the perfect introduction to the thrilling digital season ahead!
