Said much better than I could manage, by someone much more familiar with the subject. I just started really digging into sci-fi history in the past year, so I haven’t had a chance to do all the reading that goes with it. Le Guin was at the top of my list. I knew she was important, but seeing how another author was directly affected by her is somehow more significant than book reviews.
Head over and check out Iain Lindsay’s comments.
A lot of tributes are going to be coming out today, to which I cannot hope to be as eloquent, nor as thoughtful.
I started referring to Ursula Le Guin as St. Ursula a few years ago, perhaps as a nod to her gentle humor and subtle surrealism…
