Happy birthday to Ursula le Guin

Today is Ursula le Guin’s birthday, Ambling Along the Aqueduct reminds us.

Le Guin is on the list of mindblowing science fiction by women & people of colour we linked to recently. You can read an interesting short story she wrote at Infinity Matrix, the seasons of the ansarac, (which appeared in Changing Planes, a collection of short stories roughly in which humans have discovered the ability to shift between different worlds through intense airport-induced boredom).

The Guardian also did a good interview with her a few years ago, which will make most sense for fans very familiar with her various creations.
