the birthday of the world…or the writer, as it were.
Through the grapevine, I wanted to contribute my post of a very happy 80th birthday to Ursula K LeGuin, wicked important SFF writer and commentator, as well as inventor of the handy ansible! Your books are truly inspiring and life-changing, and I wish you many happy returns.
If you haven’t picked up a book by Ms LeGuin, I highly recommend doing so! My personal favourite is Always Coming Home, but it can be hard to find, even within the US. The FSF wiki has an excellent bibliography of LeGuin’s other works, including the classic The Left Hand of Darkness, out 40 years ago today, which was the first book I read by her (except for Catwings, incidentally, as a wee!Bene). That, the Ekumen books, and The Lathe of Heaven are also recced by me as Brill Thought-Provoking Reading.
