Octavia E. Butler

Sadly, as an avid science fiction fan, I had not heard about Octavia E. Butler until today when I noticed the Google Doodle. According to WikiPedia, she was the ".. recipient of both the Hugo and Nebula awards, in 1995 she became the first science fiction writer to receive a MacArthur Fellowship.". I think I'll want to read some of her novels especially the Xenogenesis series.
