Ursula K. Le Guin (1929-2018)

27 January 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.
