Lilith's Throne



Soon after her first short story "Crossover" was published in the Clarion's 1971 anthology, Butler began work on her first novel Patternmaster (1976). In brief, Patternmaster is an Arthurian tale of two brothers seeking the throne of their father. Amber, "a golden brown woman with hair that was a round cap of small tight black curls", guides the younger brother to success. Patternmaster is the first book in a series that follows the progeny of two shape-shifters known as Doro and Anyanwu. These two very important characters are not introduced until the 1980 publication of Wildseed, the first book in the series chronologically. Wildseed acts as a genesis/love story of a race of people who are not bounded by their physical identities. Doro wears the stolen bodies of people like clothing, discarding them when they have served his reproductive purposes. Anyanwu changes the shape of her body to mimic the identity of man, woman, child, or animal, regardless of race or gender. The offspring of these two godlike characters give birth to the pattern, which is a telepathic matrix that connects all of the children of Doro and Anyanwu. The pattern is revealed in the novel Mind of My Mind (1977). Clay's Ark (1984) and Survivor (1978) complete the Patternist Series.
