One of the first novels dealing with the idea of how gender love and procreation may evolve under the influence of interspecies in this case alien relationshipsOctavia E Butler is a uniue writer because she was both one of the first female black Sci Fi writers and also dealt with the at this time and strangely even today controversial ideas of what might happen if aliens want to have some sexy time with humansWe have already a bunch of varieties with the human genders and gender identities and mixing it up with genders the option to change gender and to manipulate the results of sexual reproduction both by technology and by free will opens up many plot devicesHow the average Joe and human society may react to those new realities and how human mentalities could be directly expressed by breeding in and out certain traits body parts etc What the motivation of aliens might be like for instance getting interesting new traits by dealing with all kinds of collected material from all around the universe The dangers that come up with misusing that technologyIt could be less dramatic when we would never find aliens or get visited by them and all of those new relational models would have to be developed on earth by using genetic engineering and good old fashioned mad mixing of different species That´s the reason why I hope that we won´t have to play with this potential doomsday device alone in the endless cold dark of space without the help of an experienced tutor of undescribable gender and genitalia Tropes show how literature is conceived and which mixture of elements makes works and genres uniue

Dawn By Octavia E. ButlErging with primitive civilizations whether their new hosts like it or not For the first time since the nuclear holocaust Earth will be inhabited Grass will grow animals will run and people will learn to survive the planet’s untamed wilderness But their children will not be human Not exactly. “Yes” he said “intelligence does enable you to deny facts you dislike But your denial doesn’t matter” Lilith wakes up on an Oankali spaceship hundreds of years after an atomic war devastates Earth These alien Oankali Lilith learns feel it is their mission to save what remains of humanity How they plan to do it is what makes Dawn such an interesting read I just finished Margaret Atwood's MaddAddam trilogy in which we find out the future of humanity isn't really humanity There are big differences in the approach of each author but both envision big changes in what constitutes humanity Perhaps in Atwood's case the genetically modified humanoids Crakers aren't part of humanity nor are their descendants even if they mate with some of the last remaining humans on the planet Not sure In Dawn what follows after Lilith wakes up is something of a contest of wills between herself and the Oankali she sees as her captors After studying mankind for hundreds of years are they ready to help humans repopulate Earth Compelling read with a fascinating perspective Dawn could be a standalone but I am ready to continue reading the Xenogenesis series 45 stars “Your people contain incredible potential but they die without using much of it”
