Ursula Le Guin

Ursula Le Guin has passed away. I’m not at all ashamed to say that I got a bit teary when I heard the news. Ursula was a unique intellectual light, a sharp mind and a person of simply stunning moral clarity. And she was a damned fine storyteller too.

Although she may have left us, she has left us with a treasure of words. As long as her books, poems and essays are read, her ideas and thoughts will always be dancing at the edge of the world.

Vale, Ursula.
