Ursula Le Guin (1929-2018) was a pillar in literature and science fiction. Her speculative work was rooted in socialist politics and informed, in part, by her study of Taoism.  As a female author in a male-dominated field, she chartered the way for those after her and acted as a champion for the unheard voices of the minority and the oppressed throughout her life. Le Guin believed the role of Art and Literature was to imagine alternate futures as a means of pushing society off of its self-destructive path of consumption and greed.
