Finding Jose Saramago's extraordinary blog (started up, like
Le Guin, in his eighties) was a revelation to the science fiction writer
and poet, so she has begun one of her own, and some portions have made
its way into this new collection. As always with Le Guin, everything
is interesting where she touches down with her eye and writing. One
reviewer of the book described the author's move to a blog as "narrowing" her
perspective. "Narrowing" is impossible when it comes to Ursula Le Guin.
She's been to the universe. She expands. Yes, even when she spends
home time with her cat, Pard. A good name.
