AND - if I had to pick the cream of LeGuin's crop and lad limited shelf space or budget, I'd get LEFT HAND OF DARKNESS and THE DISPOSSESSED in a classy hardbound format, to go with my copies of DUNE and THE FOUNDATION TRILOGY. Alas, Buns & Noodles has never though to offer LeGuin among their s/f Pretentiously Bound s/f works. Bradbury, yes. Lovecraft, yes. Could it be, as she said, that (cue ominous music

here) she is a (gasp, horrors, oh, yick, cooties) ....*woman*?!?!?


Well, maybe back in the day.

Ursula Le Guin Has Earned a Rare Honor. Just Don't Call Her a Sci-Fi Writer.<http://www.nytimes.com/2016/08/29/books/ursula-le-guin-has-earned-a-rare-honor-just-dont-call-her-a-sci-fi-writer.html?rref=collection%2Fsectioncollection%2Fbooks&_r=0>

The 86-year-old author will become one of the few living writers recognized by the Library of America, and she did it on her terms.
