Octavia Butler: Bloodchild (Moonshake Books Review)

Bloodchild by Octavia Butler

A bit of a long-form book review today with Octavia Butler’s disconcerting Bloodchild. This short story contemplates male impregnation on a different planet, with an alien species known as the Tlic residing over humans as the dominant species. It’s a chilling, but thoughtful, work.

I read this disturbing science fiction masterpiece in 2006 and it’s stuck with me over the years. It’s a highly effective, bloodcurdling, thoughtful piece of writing from one of sci-fi’s most talented female writers – Octavia Butler (1947-2006).
