Happy Birthday, Ursula K. Le Guin

Today is the 86th birthday of author Ursula K. Le Guin, without whom I would have never wrote all the words on this blog, or any words in general, because I would have missed out on visiting worlds of wizards, dragons, aliens, Italians, anarchists, and ants. In light of this happy occasion, I’ve compiled the pieces I’ve written about her work over the years on Ekostories. To steal a passage from the introduction she did for James Tiptree Jr.’s Star Songs of an Old Primate:

“Here are
Some real stories.”


  1. I am celebrating with you – Happy Birthday!

    “The only thing that makes life possible is permanent, intolerable uncertainty; not knowing what comes next.”
    Ursula K. Le Guin

    • I would. There’s always that fear that your hero(ines) won’t live up to your expectations in person. But I think in this instance they might hold up.

What do you think?
