Ursula Le Guin Dies at 88

Renowned author Ursula Le Guin died on Monday, her son said. She was 88 years old. Le Guin authored dozens of short stories, novels and essays which focused mostly on science fiction. “If you cannot or will not imagine the results of your actions, there’s no way you can act morally or responsibly,” Le Guin once said during an interview with The Guardian. Her work also took on feminist themes, and one of her most popular novels, “The Left Hand of Darkness,” featured characters on a planet where gender did not exist.
