The inimitable Ms. Le Guin is still duking it out, at 82, railing against the likes of Google (resigning from the Author’s Guide as a result) and yes, berating the Sci Fi Channel, who, in a limp, watered-down adaptation, totally eviscerated her work, A Wizard of Earthsea.
Still poking a stick at the inane, Ms. Le Guin gives us her opinion on the opening ceremony of the Olympic Games, voicing almost the same quiet concerns about Danny Boyle’s over-blown extravaganza, as mine. What were they thinking?
Anyway, follow the links, and go have a read.
