Ursula K. Le Guin

Ursula K. Le Guin is best known as a speculative fiction writer, specializing primarily in the genres of science fiction and fantasy, for which she won multiple Hugo and Nebula awards. Her work transcends simple classification in the same way as that of authors such as George Orwell, who was one of Le Guin’s major influences. She often upended fantasy and sci-fi tropes, with characters offering nontraditional perspectives on race and gender and themes covering everything from politics to sexuality to moral development. The above quote comes from Le Guin’s 1971 novel The Lathe of Heaven, in which the protagonist’s dreams alter past and present reality — and in which love isn’t guaranteed to last forever, but instead must be “remade all the time, made new.”
