In her too-short career, Octavia Estelle Butler (1947-2006) left a lasting mark on science fiction — with the Patternist, Xenogenesis, and Parable novels, plus standalones like Kindred and shorter stories such as "Speech Sounds" and "Bloodchild." She wrote about biology and genetics; racism, feminism, and gender; aggression, forgiveness, and the anguish and beauty of families. Which work would you give a Butler newbie? What's her best? Most terribly prophetic? Most overlooked? Why?
