Near Kin explores, questions, and pays tribute the multifaceted brilliance of Octavia Butler’s work through poetry, prose and essays by writers all over the world. Among these works are:
There’s the question over a writer’s reasons for self-censorship and what it means to the future of racial survival in Alexis Pauline Gumb’s astounding essay “A Litany for Survivor.” Lenard D. Moore, Wanda Vanhoy Smith, Deborah L. Warner, and Marieta Maglas pay tribute to Butler the writer with their works “Charisma,” “Octavia’s Brood and Vision,” “Identity,” and “Terzenalle for Octavia Estelle Butler.”
Alex Hernandez, Carol Wysinger, M. Justine Gerard, and Meghan Elison take inspiration from Butler’s near/post-apocalyptic life-and-death scenarios in their stories, “A Thing With Soft Bonds,” “In the Beginning,” “Small Talk,” and “Dys-Mytopia.”
Helene Cardona, Charie D La Marr, and Janani Balasubramanian touch on the themes of kinship and motherhood in “The Measure of Death,” “Sweet Autumn, and “My Mother Has Wombs in Her Feet That Will Not Close.”
Linda Ravenswood, Dave Scriven, Joy KMT, Diane Quinones, and Apryl Skies discuss humanity’s violent and indelible interactions with the natural world in “The Saint of the Unknown Universe,” “There is Nothing Inconsistent,” “Autonomous,” “Wisdom’s Path,” and “Immortal Kyn.”
Cacy Fogenie, Soraya Jean-Louise McElroy, Fabiola Jean-Louise, Lance Tooks, Roju, and Marissa Lafferty have contributed amazing paintings and illustrations inspired by Butler’s work: “Justus”, “In A Dream”, “Birth of a Seed”, “Kindred”, “Eternal”, and “Space Lady”
The brilliant Walidah Imarisha has a piece in it, as well.

Only one ship featuring a black woman and no ships featuring Asian women? And isn’t Attack on Titan anime? Wouldn’t that make them Japanese and not white? Either way, Fandom staying beige and basic basic, I see.

Kendis Thompson of Seattle thinks she’s as normal as the next computer geek, and up till now, she’s been right. But her world is about to turn on its ear, for she is the daughter of a Seelie Court mage and her mortal husband–and her faerie blood is awakening. Suddenly the city she’s known all her life is transforming before her eyes. Trolls haunt the bike trails. Fairies and goblins run loose in the streets. An old woman who is not what she seems and a young wanderer running from his past stand ready to defend Seattle–and Kendis–from magical assault. She will need those allies, for the power rising within her is calling her fey kin to the Emerald City to find her. And kill her.
Faerie Blood, the first book of my urban fantasy series The Free Court of Seattle, is on sale for the entire month of July! 99 cents wherever ebooks are sold, and I’m waiving all shipping charges for orders of print copies! Please come visit this post on my site, and if you’re so inclined, spread the word with reblogs!

YESSSSSSSSSS I’VE WAITED SO LONG.
Why don’t we talk about Kevin Grevioux as much as we should?
Here we have an actor, stuntman, producer, and creator. Mr. Grevioux created the Underworld series of films for Columbia Pictures and starred as Raze. He also created a pair of comic houses, Astonishing Studios and DarkStorm Studios and has written a number of titles including New Warriors for Marvel. While at Marvel, he also created Adam Brashear, the Blue Marvel, who is now a core member of the Mighty Avengers. He also voiced the sinister Black Beetle on Young Justice: Invasion. A theatrical film adaptation of another one of his comic creations, I, Frankenstein, is set to be released later this month.
Definitely someone who should be on your creative radar.
