If you are looking for Black science fiction books and authors there is a high chance that when you Google those words in a search bar the name Octavia E. Butler appears. In fact, even if you google science fiction books and authors without adding Black, you will see the renowned and award-winning writer.

In fact, Butler has paved the way not just for Black sci-fi writers but Black women writers of the genre as a whole. We continue to celebrate her life as her works have inspired a whole movement of Afrofuturism and speculative fiction. Her work continues to resonate every year as books combine race, politics and science fiction all into one.
