Aye-Aye Books: BLOODCHILD: and other stories


  • Working with Glasgow's Aye-Aye Books, Satellite's artist Holly McLean has selected BLOODCHILD: and other stories by Octavia E. Butler as part of a collection of books to accompany their exhibition If you get the knees right the rest should follow. Read more about Holly's exhibition here.

    A newly expanded edition of Octavia E. Butler's only collection of short stories.

    "Butler graces new mansions of thought with her eloquent, distinguished and poignant prose. Although this book is little in size, its ideas are splendidly large." - Booklist
    "The title story is justly famous. Splendid pieces, set forth in calm, lucid prose with never a word wasted." - Kirkus Reviews

    This New York Times notable Book includes the Hugo and the Nebula awards winner Bloodchild and the Hugo Award winner Speech Shounds.
