Abstract
“Gerry Canavan explores Butler’s often-neglected first novels, the Patternist series (1976–84). The first of them to be published, Patternmaster (1976), depicts a feudal far-future Earth governed by superhumans, while the four prequels trace its development through a millennia-long breeding program conducted by an East African vampire that began centuries in our past. Canavan argues that, in addition to placing issues of power center stage, as would become characteristic of her work, Butler’s secret and future history draws heavily on the comic books she read as a child and young woman.” (Mark Bould: Introduction)
