Ursula K Le Guin passed away

Sad news, author Ursula K Le Guin passed away at age 88. While I enjoyed Wizard of Earth Sea her best novel in my mind was The Dispossessed.

Read a lot of her books. One of the greatest sci-fi/fantasy writer ever IMHO.

way back in early 1980s , Glasgow used to be one of the best places in world for books, seriously, everyone thinks were just rough assholes, not true, we had more book stores per area/populace than just about anywhere

were several superb shops selling 2nd hand books and thanks to them and library, read Wizard of Earth Sea, as well as many other books with other authors.
sad seeing so many wonderful artists pass :/
