As her 60s new wave colleague Roger Zelazny once wrote "Spare none of the rites: one of the highest has died this day." Ursula Le Guin has been guarranteed dead by the NYT.

Sadly missed - I loved her fiction and still have copies around the house.

"What she had begun to learn was the weight of liberty. Freedom is a heavy load, a great and strange burden for the spirit to undertake. It is not easy. It is not a gift given, but a choice made, and the choice may be a hard one. The road goes upward towards the light; but the laden traveler may never reach the end of it."
Ursula Le Guin - The Tombs of Atuan
(emphasis mine)
