Major works:

“Butler loved exploring the experience of encountering the alien: the way touching something unlike us might feel to us and to them, or how it would feel, as humans, to live in mutualistic relationships with other species. In simple but captivating prose, these provocative, probing stories sought to uncover what it might be like to exist amid Difference itself. Butler brought the stars, in all their fatal heat and fatalistic beauty, closer to us, as if to say, Look at them as if you have never seen them before.”
—Gabrielle Bellot
