Oh. Sucks. She was pretty young and had a great voice.

I once stayed very near her place at Howth, but she never showed at the pub when I was there :(

Ursula K. Le Guin, the immensely popular author who brought literary depth and a tough-minded feminist sensibility to science fiction and fantasy with books like "The Left Hand of Darkness" and the Earthsea series, died on Monday at her home in Portland, Ore. She was 88.
I've never read her work but I gather ravenscape and borealis are fans

if you'd read her work, you'd probably be a fan.

88, but it's a milestone. I first became aware of pretty much everything that matters through her books. She was amazing, and now a light has gone out.

Also a few days ago, 91 year old Red Fisher.

Probably only matters to you if you are a Montrealer or real hockey nerd but still :(

He was 99. That's a damn long life.

Spent the last 15 or so years in seclusion (more or less), that's probably why nobody realized he was still alive.

Agreed that Christian proselytizing is icky, and making a comfortable living off of it is ickier yet.

But he was a good guy in comparison to others of that type.

Good.

My dad's parents, the missionaries, were classmates of his at Wheaton. Weird to think that they would be about that age too had they lived so long but my mothers parents would have been 98 this year if they hadn't died last year so I guess we're all getting older!
