Ursula Kroeber Le Guin (US /ˈɜːrsələ ˈkroʊbər ləˈɡwɪn/; born October 21, 1929) is an American author of novels, children's books, and short stories, mainly in the genres of fantasy and science fiction. She has also written poetry and essays. First published in the 1960s, her work has often depicted futuristic or imaginary alternative worlds in politics, the natural environment, gender, religion, sexuality and ethnography.

She influenced such Booker Prize winners and other writers as Salman Rushdie and David Mitchell – and notable science fiction and fantasy writers including Neil Gaiman and Iain Banks. She has won the Hugo Award, Nebula Award, Locus Award, and World Fantasy Award, each more than once. In 2014, she was awarded the National Book Foundation Medal for Distinguished Contribution to American Letters. Le Guin has resided in Portland, Oregon since 1959.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is one of my favorite novels
By The Dancing Banana on December 8, 2020
It was required reading in high school and The Lathe Of Heaven became my second most favorite book (the first being Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy). I knew back then that I lived within ten miles of the author but never met her, but over 40 years later my roommate got to know her very well. Before she died she asked me if I could repair her favorite reading lamp. They didn't make mercury bulbs like that anymore but I managed to modernize it without making it look any different. In return she signed my book. I think I got the better deal. She was a fabulous lady, a brilliant writer, and will be sorely missed.
