Ursula K Le Guin

It has just been reported that Ursula K Le Guin has died: a great writer.

Razib Khan thinks her best work was "The Tombs of Atuan". I was a fan of the entire 'Earthsea" sequence:
  1. A Wizard of Earthsea
  2. The Tombs of Atuan
  3. The Farthest Shore
  4. Tehanu
  5. The Other Wind
save for the short story collection "Tales from Earthsea", where her increasingly-overt feminism, in all its inchoate indignation, overwhelmed her literary powers. IMHO.

I also treasure her take on the Tao Te Ching.
