Kindred

Octavia E. Butler
Illustrated by James E. Ransome
Introduced by Tananarive Due

The past becomes a deadly leash in Octavia E. Butler's remarkable science-fiction thriller Kindred. This special Folio Society edition features work by award-winning artist James E. Ransome.

Octavia E. Butler is one of the most important figures in speculative fiction history; a pioneering African–American author who won multiple awards and changed the very foundations of the genre. Kindred is perhaps her most iconic novel, a ground-breaking time-travel thriller that plunges its heroine into pre-Civil War America, challenging the reader to witness the horrors of slavery. For this edition, celebrated artist James E. Ransome was commissioned to provide a series of emotive illustrations and a beautifully simple binding design. In her exclusive introduction, author and journalist Tananarive Due draws on interviews with Butler to take a deeper look at this essential novel, and the questions it raises about history, guilt and survival.
