Foremost among that group of writers who have changed science fiction, Ursula K. Le Guin has created a profound and transformational literature. These award-winning stories range from the everyday to the outer limits of experience, where the quantum uncertainties of space and time are resolved only in the depths of the human heart. Here we have starships that sail, literally, on wings of song... musical instruments to be played at funerals only... ansibles for faster-than-light communication... even orbiting arks designed to save a doomed humanity.
