    A few years ago I read the Parable series by Octavia Butler and found it to be a well written story set in an all too plausible distopia of America in a declining slow apocalypse. She had planned more books in this series, but stopped when the research became too depressing for her to continue.

    I don't know how I missed it but the xenogenesis series is now on my list of things to read.

    research became too depressing

    You mean, the data/truth was worse than her stories?

      Hopefully her stories were more interesting to read than the telephone directory.
