Ursula K. Le Guin (1929-2018)

Losing Ursula K. Le Guin
on 22 January 2018 left the SF Encyclopedia team stunned
and bereft of words. She was a great writer and a great person
whose very many awards include five Hugos
-- the first being for The Left Hand of Darkness (1970) --
six Nebulas and several honours for
lifetime achievement: the Pilgrim
Award (1989), World
Fantasy Award (1999), Science
Fiction Hall of Fame (2001), SFWA Grand Master Award
(2003) and Eaton Award (2013).
Here are some links to obituaries, memorial articles and
celebrations of a huge literary talent. Goodbye, Ursula.
For readers who would like to donate to some good cause in
Ursula K. Le Guin's memory, her family has mentioned the Malheur
National Wildlife Refuge as a non-profit organization that was
close to her heart.
