>Le Guin

The only book I've read is The Left Hand of Darkness, which is about a white human male who goes as an emissary to a primitive, frozen planet full of post-human turbotrannies. It was excellent. Unironically one of my favorite pieces of sci-fi or fantasy.

Oh, and The Ones who Walk Away from Omelas. I actually hate that one but it made me think.

I heard of Earthsea years ago but I still haven't read any. Le Guin really caught my attention through pic related. It's a collection of essays from authors talking about how Tolkien influenced them, and most of them are fluffy nostalgia-pieces, but Ursula's essay was a brief discussion of the "music" theme in Lord of the Rings followed by an autistic meter-based breakdown of every line spoken by Tom Bombadill.

Ursula K. Le Guin was a fuckin boss.
