Reading the interview Scott Rettberg did with Octavia Butler from a few years back reminds me that I need to read Parable Of The Talents soon. It’s been sitting in my “to read” pile for about a year, and it is about time that changed.
Really cool comment from Butler during the interview-
Forget talent. If you have it, that’s great. If you don’t, don’t worry. If you think talent is essential, take a look at the best seller list and you’ll change your mind.
