She was active until the very end, and is going to be sorely missed.

Nice quote. I like it.

I'm an atheist and an artist as well.

As I said over on Chit Chat, this is very sad news.

Her writing was and has been a big inspiration to me, even if her vision of the future was, sometimes, a bit low-tech and hair shirt for my tastes (I'm referring to The Disposessed here). That said, she brought a refreshingly anthropological, non-macho approach to sci-fi and fantasy. She will be much missed.

A loss for SF, and a loss for the world as a whole. LeGuin has always been one of my favourite SF writers.

Probably my favorite writer in terms of the sound and poetry of her writing. The words themselves were beautiful if that makes sense, it would have been enjoyable to read her version of an instruction manual.

“It is a terrible thing, this kindness that human beings do not lose. Terrible, because when we are finally naked in the dark and cold, it is all we have. We who are so rich, so full of strength, we end up with that small change. We have nothing else to give. ”

I read a ton of her stuff; she was fantastic. I know she wasn't exactly young, but her death saddens me.

I found the anarchism ridiculously idealistic when I read them as a child. Perhaps I was always a cynic. Rather a good antidote to Heinlein's fascism though.
