Via the FWord I find out that today is Ursula Le Guin’s 80th birthday.
I love, love, love Le Guin. I don’t have anything more intelligent to say than that because I’ve spent all day writing a convoluted report and my brain is now mush, so here and here are links to old posts I’ve written about Le Guin. Perhaps there will be a longer one about her work at some point.
Feminist SF has a post with links.
And Godard’s Letterboxes has a post about one of Le Guin’s characters, Tenar, from the Earthsea Quartet.
