The idea of a collection of Ursula K. Le Guin’s short stories is wildly exciting. How have we survived without such a thing? This, plus the upcoming publication of a collection of her verse, has led to an uptick in articles and reviews about her in leading publications and blogs. For your reading pleasure, here are some links:
