Science Fiction legend Ursula K. Le Guin has passed away this week at 88 years old. Her influence on both readers and writers has been felt far and wide even in genres outside of science fiction. Some of her most famous works were the Earthsea Trilogy, the short story "Those who Walk Away from Omelas", and The Left Hand of Darkness. Not one to rest on her laurels, Le Guin was continually writing and had published No Time to Spare: Thinking About What Matters in 2017.
