FROM THIS EPISODE

Fledgling (Seven Stories Press)
As a science fiction writer, the MacArthur Prize-winning Octavia Butler has taken the conventional elements of the genre and transformed them so that they profoundly comment on sex, race, biology and history. Here, she proves that all of her revelations depend on a deep understanding of the characters. Her sympathy for her young vampire heroine is the key.
