Notes on 'Adulthood Rites' (1988) by Octavia E. Butler (1947-2006)

As a major voice in social criticism, writing on issues such as race, sex and power, Octavia E. Butler has made a series of significant contributions to the sf canon. Adulthood Rites is the second work in Butler’s Xenogenesis series (1987-1989). An alien invasion, in the wake of a global nuclear war, becomes the starting point for an investigation into male aggression, fear of the unknown, as well as gender fluidity and hybridity.
