Mind of My Mindby Octavia E. Butler
Synopses & Reviews
A brilliant talent unique in speculative fiction, multiple Hugo and Nebula winner Octavia Butler is the creator of extraordinary novels that combine the cultural vision of Alice Walker and Terry McMillan with the cosmic scope of Ursula K. Le Guin and Doris Lessing. Provocative, probing, and breathlessly paced, Mind of My Mind is one of her finest novels...
For four thousand years, an Immortal has spread the seeds of an evolutionary master race, using the downtrodden of the underclass as his private breeding stock. But now a young ghetto telepath has found the way to awaken — and rule — her superhuman kind, igniting a psychic battle from L.A. mansions to South Central slums, as she challengest her creator for the right to free her people...and enslave the Earth.
