Ursula LeGuin, 1973

"The fantasist, whether he uses the ancient archetypes of myth and legend or the younger ones of science and technology, may be talking as seriously as any sociologist— and a great deal more directly— about human life as it is lived, and as it might be lived, and as it ought to be lived."

HAPPY BIRTHDAY to our 2014 Distinguished Contribution to American Letters Medalist Ursula K. Le Guin!
