* NeverMessWithGranny: Anyanwu is several hundred years old, but it doesn't show unless she allows it and it has no affect on her ability to produce supernatural strength. The last group of young idiots who thought they could jump an old witch got straight-up ''eaten''.

* CanonDiscontinuity: The novel ''Survivor'' is an OldShame for the author and was withdrawn. Since the action of that story takes place entirely on another planet, its connection to the overall series is weak, and the canonicity of the few series elements it contained remains unclear.

Within the book, though, it clearly takes place after the outbreak of the clayark virus, and mentions both that and 'Forsyth', the main Patternist stronghold.

Also called the ''Patternmaster'' series, fully contained in the ''Seed to Harvest'' omnibus, the Paternist series is a science fiction tetralogy written by OctaviaButler. The series spans the appearance and rise of powerful psychics among the human race as well as the invasion of the Clayarks, containing the books ''Wild Seed'', ''Mind of My Mind'', ''Clay's Ark'', and ''Patternmaster,'' in chronological order, though ''Patternmaster'' was written first.

The series spans the appearance and rise of powerful psychics among the human race as well as the invasion of the Clayarks, Clayark aliens.

The series originally consisted of five books, but the third (''Survivor'') was disliked by the author and not reprinted. The remaining four have been republished in the ''Seed to Harvest'' omnibus,
containing the books ''Wild Seed'', ''Mind of My Mind'', ''Clay's Ark'', and ''Patternmaster,'' in chronological series-chronological order, though ''Patternmaster'' was written first.
