RIP Ursula K LeGuin, who wrote “The Lathe of Heaven” and more…

You’d have to read Lathe of Heaven to understand my admiration. It was the first time I ever saw the term Oneirophobia, the fear of dreams. She accidentally introduced me to “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?” (Philip K Dick) because (the bane of library workers) somebody had put “sheep’ on the wrong shelf. It’s why libraries have signs everywhere reminding people not to re-shelve the books because it’s close to inevitable you’ll do it WRONG. So I got two psychedelic experience masterpieces in one short move.

If you liked Androids or Brave New World, this an author to seek out.
