One of Our Great Ones Has Moved On

RIP Ursula K. Le Guin. I am saddened to hear of her passing. I don’t think there is any way to overstate the impact her fiction had on me as a young writer, and likely still has on me in so many ways. Earthsea was my Hogwarts. And The Left Hand of Darkness¬†and her short stories opened up for me, as a young teen, a kind of vigorous, thoughtful, and demanding speculative fiction I hadn’t known was possible. One of our great ones has left us.
