Interview with Ursula K. Le Guin

I loved Le Guin’s stories as a young teen, and as I got older learned to appreciate the anthropology and science that went into her fiction. Claire Evans at Scienceblog Universe lucked out in snagging an interview with her. It’s about author’s rights, electronic books, and Google, but all very important to those of us keeping an eye on how technology and science are influencing art, and vice versa.

Oh, and if you don’t know who Ursula K. Le Guin is, you need to learn now.
