Happy Birthday, Ursula Le Guin!
Having won dozens upon dozens of awards for, well, just about everything she's written; it would be a ridiculously long entry to list her books. I will say, the Earthsea books have had a lasting impact on me, and are probably responsible for creating such a love of fantasy literature in my heart. In particular, the third in the series, The Farthest Shore... simply wonderful.
So again, HAPPY BIRTHDAY! And thank you.
