I'm currently behind on reviews, so don't be surprised if the recent reviews are a bit sparse.

Clay’s Ark

Cover of Clay's Ark.

Man, Octavia Butler doesn’t do nice โ€“ in the end, there’s always violence/rape/horror. I’m starting to see a little too many parallels between her books in terms of characters involved, and the general feeling/direction, so I’ll probably lay off them for a while. I still enjoyed Clay’s Ark (which is part of the Patternmaster series, although VERY loosely connected), but it’s not a book I’d care to read again.
