And this week there’s news that a pilot for an adaptation of her 1979 novel Kindred is set for FXVariety has details.

Plus, with the recent release of the Library of America edition of the first volume of her collected works, The New Yorker has a feature on Butler, “the sixth science-fiction writer to be featured in the landmark series, and the first Black science-fiction writer.”
