I am working on a proposal for MLA and I have been doing a lot of primary reading. I thought I would search for secondary articles and texts and found this:
Post-Apocalyptic Hoping: Octavia Butler’s Dystopian/Utopian Vision
Science Fiction Studies, Vol. 25, No. 2 (Jul., 1998), pp. 336-360
(article consists of 25 pages)
Published by: SF-TH Inc
Stable URL: http://www.jstor.org/stable/4240705
I have read the first page and it is very interesting. I will have to come back to it and read it later.
