parable of the sower

i recently finished reading 'parable of the sower' by octavia butler. i was impressed--it was a great dystopian portrait of california, and the story was engaging. got a little preachy and contrived at the end, but not enough to quite be irritating.

this was my first experience with octavia butler. anyone have suggestions for other works of hers? i know i need to read 'kindred'--any others that are outstanding?
