Moore, Wanda Vanhoy Smith, Deborah L. Warner, and Marieta Maglas pay tribute to Butler the writer with their works “Charisma,” “Octavias Brood and Vision,” “Identity,” and “Terzenalle for Octavia Estelle Butler.” Alex Hernandez, Carol Wysinger, M. Justine Gerard, and Meghan Elison take inspiration from Butlers near/post-apocalyptic life-and-death scenarios in their stories, “A Thing With Soft Bonds,” “In the Beginning,” “Small Talk,” and “Dys-Mytopia.” Helene Cardona, Charie D La Marr, and Janani Balasubramanian touch on the themes of kinship and motherhood in “The Measure of Death,” “Sweet Autumn, and “My Mother Has Wombs in Her Feet That Will Not Close.” Linda Ravenswood, Dave Scriven, Joy KMT, Diane Quinones, and Apryl Skies discuss humanitys violent and indelible interactions with the natural world in “The Saint of the Unknown Universe,” “There is Nothing Inconsistent,” “Autonomous,” “Wisdoms Path,” and “Immortal Kyn.” Cacy Fogenie, Soraya Jean-Louise McElroy, Fabiola Jean-Louise, Lance Tooks, Roju, and Marissa Lafferty have contributed amazing paintings and illustrations inspired by Butlers work: “Justus”, “In A Dream”, “Birth of a Seed”, “Kindred”, “Eternal”, and “Space Lady”.
