SciFi-preneurship Episode 6: Le Guin part 1

Ursula K. Le Guin is one of science fiction’s most influential writers. Her science fiction philosophy is one that underscores the entire SciFi-preneurship series, which is that science fiction was is meant descriptive rather than predictive. Additionally, her writing tends to be more inclusive of different gender and sexual identity expressions than many of her contemporaries, allowing for a broader representation of characters with whom readers can identify.
