    The final week represents something of a jump from the emphasis on turn of the century SF. Our focus here shifts to Octavia Butler and specifically her Xenogenesis trilogy. As such, we leap over a great deal of mid-century SF utopianism but can use this week as an opportunity to consider any favourites in relation to Butler’s work. Butler’s vision of utopia might come as a surprise after what we have so far studied, but consider how it engages with and builds on the problems we have identified.
