RIP Ursula

Damn. Ursula Le Guin has died. One of the greats who you would wish to go on forever. That task has now passed to her work. So that settles it, she will be read, and re-read for a very long time to come. She will be missed, but her memory, ideas, characters and philosophies will live on.

Now, if you will excuse me, I will put aside my re-reading of Philip Pullman’s His Dark Materials, and pick up, once more, Le Guin’s The Left Hand of Darkness, before continuing with the other thirty-one books of hers in my library…

About Geoff Coupe

I'm a British citizen, although I have lived and worked in the Netherlands since 1983. I came here on a three year assignment, but fell in love with the country, and one Dutchman in particular, and so have stayed here ever since. On the 13th December 2006 I also became a Dutch citizen.
