FLEDGLING ... A NOVEL. New York: Seven Stories Press, [2005]. Octavo, pictorial wrappers. Advance reading copy of the first edition. The last novel published during Butler's lifetime, the story of Shori, an apparently young amnesiac girl who is in fact the first of her kind, a 53-year-old genetically modified black vampire whose melanin allows her to walk in the light of day. A novel that explores the limits of "otherness" and what it means to be truly human. A fine copy. (#168334).
