I made this when Ursula K. LeGuin won the National Book Foundation’s Medal for Distinguished Contribution to American Letters. Her novels transcend the (artificial) division between literary and genre fiction. If you’ve never read Le Guin, this guide will give you a place to start, and if you’re already a fan, hopefully you’ll find a new book.
The Left Hand of Darkness is an atmospheric, intricately plotted science fiction novel that feature well-rounded characters living in cultures very different from our own, as is Bright of the Sky by Kay Kenyon.
What is your favorite book or series by Le Guin? What books would you recommend to her fans? Do you have an author or genre you’d like to be featured in a like, try, why post? Leave a note in the comments!
