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.
