Who was the first Black woman to be named a "Grand Master" of sci-fi by the Sceince Fiction Writers of America? Nope, not Octavia Butler, but the lesseer-known Hopkinson who kicked off her literary career with this tale of Afro-Caribbean magic, women's herbal wisdom, the strains of motherhood, and the cycle of trauma, set in a post-apocalyptic Toronto. Slow-stewing but meaty.
