Post RIP Ursula K. Le Guin
Passed away at age 88 at her home in Portland, OR Monday 1-22-18 after several months of illness.

The Wizard of Earthsea was my big push into fantasy before I started gaming (unlike the more common Conan the Barbarian crowd) right alongside Tolkein and Lewis. Another icon for the genre now gone.

R.I.P. !

I enjoyed 2 of her books, The Left Hand of Darkness and The Dispossed - excellent reads. Sheesh, it was probably about 40 years ago when I read them.

I have The Eathsea Trilogy and have been wanting to read it . . might be a good time.

I read the Earthsea Trilogy and found it entertaining. RIP Mrs Le Guin.

A good author. Don't love any of her books, but I enjoyed them enough to read almost all of them. RIP.

Since its 20,000 I suggest "Captain Nemo" as his title. Beyond the obvious connection, he is one who sails on his own terms and ignores those he doesn't agree with...confident in his journey and goals.
