Book cover for Love Beyond Body, Space, and Time
SF survivance stories are not about survival. SF survivance stories are about persistence, adaptation, and flourishing in the future, in sometimes subtle but always important contrast to mere survival, or the self‐limiting experience of ...more

“Change biology, and you could change society--but could you change society on its own? Were we as a species simply condemned to permanent misery, all because of how we have evolved?

This was the conundrum that the Oankali books had posed to her, and the Parables had been intended (but failed) to solve: How do you create a more sustainable, more benign, more livable society when you're stuck working with human beings?”
Gerry Canavan, Octavia E. Butler

Francisco X. Stork
“You hardly see me in the sun,
My sparkle's in the stars.
When all is dark around you,
I'm the memory of light.

I'm not the fruit of summer.
I'm not the blooming rose.
I live in roots of trees
And in the seeds of love.

When all is lost around you,
When life's last dream is gone,
I'll be the breath you breathe,
The next step that you take.”
Francisco X. Stork, The Memory of Light

“A library at night is full of sounds: the unread books can't stand it any longer and announce their contents, some boasting, some shy, some devious.”
Helen Oyeyemi, What is Not Yours is Not Yours

Nalo Hopkinson
“But one of the progressions I've made is from being a depressed teenager who saw how powerless she was to change all the ills around her to being a mostly cheerful fifty-something who realizes there are all kinds of ways of working towards positive change. I am not as active in doing so as my conscience would have me be, but I am not at all passive, or powerless. And that's because I'm not alone. I've learned I can trust that humans in general will strive to make things better for themselves and their communities. Not all of us. Not always in principled, loving, or respectful ways. Often the direst opposite, in fact. But we're all on the same spinning ball of dirt, trying to live as best we can.”
Nalo Hopkinson, Falling in Love with Hominids

Ta-Nehisi Coates
“I was made for the library, not the classroom. The classroom was a jail of other people’s interests. The library was open, unending, free.”
Ta-Nehisi Coates, Between the World and Me
