livre d'or

Book: Wild Seed

Author: Octavia Butler

Details: (c) 1980 Octavia E. Butler; Pub Victor Gollancz 2000; ISBN 057507-145-1

Verdict: Wild Seed is extremely disturbing, and hard to justify apart from the obvious quality of the writing.

Reasons for reading it: lethargic_man recommended it, on the grounds of interesting ideas about different forms of immortality.

How it came into my hands: lethargic_man lent it to me.
