Ursula K. Le Guin at an informal bookstore Q&A session, July 2004
Ursula Kroeber Le Guin (October 21, 1929 - January 22, 2018) was an American author. She has written novels, poetry, children's books, essays, and short stories, most notably in the fantasy and science fiction genres. Unlike some science fiction, Le Guin's work is less concerned with the importance of technological change and development on human culture, and more interested in using alternative models of society to examine the social, gender and spiritual dimensions of human society.
