Author Ursula Le Guin is no longer with us.
One of the most poignant remembrances I’ve yet seen is by author Catherynne Valente on Twitter:
I’m most fond of Le Guin’s Earthsea stories, some of which I’ve read and re-read in Finnish and in English over the years. I’ve only managed one of her science fiction books so far, though. Time to rectify that.
Forever read, Ms. Le Guin. Your intellect, inner fire, and vision will be deeply missed.
(Hat tip to Nnedi Okorafor for the phrase “forever read” in lieu of “rest in peace”.)
