I remember Lathe Of Heaven to be a very good book, and I have vague memories of the PBS version from the 80s ... Unfortunately, that is all I know from Ursula ..... I'm definitely interested in getting up to date with her work

RIP Ursula

Her writing was extraordinary - pure genius.  When I first tried to read her novels, I was in my 20's, and they whooshed right over my head.  :laughing guy:

I was first introduced to her as a kid with the wonderful Earthsea trilogy....I later went on to read a number of her books, and her inventiveness, characterisation and sheer storytelling craft were hard to beat...RIP.
