Octavia Butler's amazing time-travel novel Kindred will be a graphic novel from Beacon Press - and you can help.

In Kindred, a present-day African American woman in California, Dana, keeps getting drawn back in time to the antebellum South. She saves the white plantation owner, Rufus, from drowning, but every time Dana travels back in time her stays grow longer and more arduous.


Beacon, which has been publishing editions of Kindred since 2004, is seeking an artist to put images to Butler's ideas: contact Alison Trzop by March 16. [Tor.com, Racialicious and SF Scope]
