Ursula K. Le Guin Has Died At Age 88

Ursula K. Le Guin, Grand Dame of science fiction and fantasy, has passed away at the age of 88. She was the winner of numerous awards including several Hugos, Nebulas, and the World Fantasy Award; she was also a wonderfully cranky, prolific blogger. As a lifelong reader, I’ll be raising a glass tonight (and spilling a few tears) in her honor.

Get more info on her amazing career and work in the New York Times obituary.
