Publisher's Summary

This exciting collection presents two previously unpublished stories by SF legend Octavia E. Butler.

A Necessary Being precedes the events of Survivor, Butler's third (famously disowned) installment in her Patternist series, and includes characters from it, focusing exclusively on the Kohn, aliens who build their social hierarchies on the blueness of their fur.

In Childfinder, a black woman with the gift of identifying children with latent psychic ability refuses to share her skill with an organization of white telepaths.

Octavia B. is the John Coltrane of Scifi fantasy

This woman.... oh how I wish we had more time with her. For me she is the John Coltrane... the Nina Simone ... the Monk of Scifi fantasy I can read her stories over and over again... it hits me like a favorite jazz song.
