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.
