Kelis reading Octavia Butler's "Bloodchild and Other Stories" (2005). On the tale the book with the orange binding is Robert Greene's "The Art of Seduction" (2003).





too many awesome things happening in this photo.

Description: Photo of Kelis, a slim brown woman in a copper-coloured tube dress and gold heels, sitting on a wicker settee on a balcony, with some books and a pot of zinnias on a wicker table in front of her. She's holding a copy of Bloodchild in one hand and glancing down at a pale fluffy dog jumping down from the settee.

"My excellent taste in black feminist science fiction brings all the boys to the yard, and they're like, 'Butler's nuanced portrayals of of power and interdependence across race, class and sexuality are arguably unsurpassed by any other writer in the genre', to which I unequivocally agree. I could suggest how you might follow in her path, but you would have to apply to the Clarion Writers' Workshop."

…I think that's how the first draft went, anyway.

got Kindred for my mama for xmas, cuz you know I'm gonna borrow it as soon as she's done…
