I had seen that a couple other authors had died too, ones probably more famous than Ketchum. I didn't mean to snub them, but Ketchum was the only one I was a personal reader of. Tough month for writers, George R R Martin better call the cardiologist just in case.

Aw, man, I hadn't heard about Le Guin. I really liked her. She wasn't as relentlessly ballbreaking as Joanna Russ and wasn't a fucking psycho like Marion Zimmer Bradley.
She had that knack of being both deep, witty, and poetic. Too few writers manage to hit all three notes.

Idk who these other authors are, but rip Ursula.

She did SF the way SF was supposed to be done:
Questioning.
And she was a master story teller.

Hell, Le Guin died?
Maybe there's a chance of some decent Earthsea adaptations to be made. I dunno what her stance on them were besides getting mad about the Ghibli flick.
