Unlike some "literary" talented authors who prefer to avoid the sci-fi label she took pride in it. Certainly I agree that it is an author's prerogative how they want their works or themselves to be classified, which makes Octavia Butler's choice that much more meaningful, the photo below beautifully illustrates this point:
