Description
Time travel, fantasy and alternate history are themes that capture and hold some very loyal readers. Older fans may need or just prefer Large Print; younger fans are often encouraged to read by Large Print. This series offers selections from current and bestselling authors as well as perennial favorites and true classics of the genre. Octavia Butler's eerie novella Bloodchild, which she once described as her "pregnant man story", explores the paradoxes of power and inequality -- starkly portraying a class of people who, like women throughout history, are valued chiefly for their reproductive capacities. Like all of Butler's best writing, Bloodchild and the six other works included here are parables of the contemporary world. She proves constant to her vigil, an unblinking pessimist hoping to be proven wrong, and one of contemporary literature's strongest voices.
