Ursula Le Guin Has Died

Ursula Le Guin has just died. This is such sad news.

She was 88 years old, and she was writing and creating all the way to the end, but I am still heartbroken. One of my favorite writers, and one that has had enormous influence on me.

If you haven't read her, start with Lathe of Heaven, or The Dispossessed, or her collecting The Birthday of the World. Her short novel The Word for World is Forest is also wonderful.

If you have read her, a massive re-read is in order.

I'll be over here, mourning deeply.
