Liberty Hardy

Senior Contributing Editor

Liberty Hardy is an unrepentant velocireader, writer, bitey mad lady, and tattoo canvas. Turn-ons include books, books and books. Her favorite exclamation is “Holy cats!” Liberty reads more than should be legal, sleeps very little, frequently writes on her belly with Sharpie markers, and when she dies, she’s leaving her body to library science. Until then, she lives with her three cats, Millay, Farrokh, and Zevon, in Maine. She is also right behind you. Just kidding! She’s too busy reading. Twitter: @MissLiberty

O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay! Two GIANT editions of work by living legend Ursula K. Le Guin. So many science fiction and fantasy authors owe a lot to her. If you’ve never read her before, these are a great place to start, and if you’re a big fan, then WOOHOO! You now have a whole kittenton of her collected work in one place! She is so awesome.

Backlist bump: Read everything she has written, obviously, but also check out this wonderful new profile of Le Guin in theNew Yorker.
