Ursula K. Le Guin

Utne Reader visionary [Originally published as Ursula K. Le Guin in the January-February 1995 issue of Utne Reader]

| January/February 1995

Le Guin’s unforgettable phantasmagorical worlds have made science fiction a legitimate literary form. In her award-winning novels, short stories, poetry, and children’s books she promotes an ethic of cross-cultural understanding by peopling her alien worlds with sympathetic characters whose lives are rich in myth and culture, familiar yet mysterious. Recent work includes a collection of short stories, A Fisherman of the Inland Sea, and a book of poetry titled Going Out with the Peacocks.
