Birthday: Ursula K. Le Guin

Author Ursula K. Le Guin celebrates her 80th birthday today. It is also the fortieth anniversary of the publication of her novel, The Left Hand of Darkness.

I first discovered Ursula K. Le Guin's writing back when I was a wee lad of 11 or 12 or so... Can't remember the name of the book, but I remember thinking that here was a female author who could write science fiction. She later went on to write the Earthsea series of books, and became one of my favourite authors at the time.

Thanks for the wonderful books that you've written over the years, the imagination that you have displayed in your works, and I hope to continue reading new works from you for years to come.

Happy Birthday, Ursula K. Le Guin! :)
