lathe of heaven

Our gratitude to Boing Boing for bringing to our attention sad news of the passing of one of our favourite authors, influential and inspiring writer of speculative fiction writer Ursula Kroeber Le Guin. Raised by anthropologists who fostered her talents, Le Guin’s body of works addresses matters of sociology, ethnography, psychology and conservation as allegorical exercises not only of the fantastic but also of the political and identitarian imagination, making a distinct impression on many readers and fellow writers. Surely she had many more stories to tell and we hope that more take this opportunity to revisit or to discover her novels.
