Speech Sounds is Excellent for starters

Okay so I love Science Fiction and it is really interesting to find other black science fiction writers. Of course my favorite writer is Octavia Butler and I have read all she has written at least once but generally more than once. My favorite collection of stories by any author living and/or past is Bloodchild and Other Stories by guess who---the one and only Octavia Butler.

The absolute best story---in my opinion---is called Speech Sounds. It is an amazing commentary on human connection and power of verbal and non-verbal communication. I dont wanna go on and on about it because I know that you cant wait to run out and check the collection out for yourself.
Black Nerds Rule!
