'A book that shifted my life... Epic, game-changing, moving and brilliant' VIOLA DAVIS on Wild Seed

'In the ongoing contest over which dystopian classic is most applicable to our time... for sheer peculiar prescience, Butler's novel may be unmatched' NEW YORKER


A PATTERNIST NOVEL: BOOK FOUR

The Patternmaster is all powerful. His every thought can control, heal or destroy.

The only threat to his command are the Clayarks, a society of people born out of terrible disease, who now live enslaved by the ruling Patternists or in the wild.

Coransee, son of the Patternmaster, wants the throne and will stop at nothing to succeed his father, even if it means killing every one of his siblings.

But when one brother - his rival and his equal - takes refuge amongst the Clayarks, a war ensues that will change the world forever.

One of the most significant literary artists of the twentieth century. One cannot exaggerate the impact she has had -- Junot Diaz

Butler's prose, always pared back to the bone, delineates the painful paradoxes of metamorphosis with compelling precision ― Guardian

A dark, compelling and still horribly resonant time travel story ― Independent

[Her] evocative, often troubling, novels explore far-reaching issues of race, sex, power and, ultimately, what it means to be human ― New York Times

No novel I've read this year has felt as relevant, as gut-wrenching or as essential... If you've ever tweeted "All Lives Matter", someone needs to shove Kindred into your hand, and quickly ― The Pool

Kindred is that rare magical artifact . . . the novel one returns to, again and again ― Harlan Ellison

One cannot finish Kindred without feeling changed. It is a shattering work of art ― Los Angeles Herald-Examiner

[A] must-read novel ― BBC

Everyone should read at least one novel by the grand dame of science fiction, and Kindred is a perfect (and harrowing and disturbing and brilliant) place to start ― Refinery 29

The immediate effect of reading Octavia Butler's Kindred is to make every other time travel book in the world look as if it's wimping out... This is a brilliant book, utterly absorbing, very well written, and deeply distressing. It's very hard to read, not because it's not good but because it's so good ― Tor
