This i what I posted on my author site:

Once there was an author, because all stories have an author.

And she was a great author, a wise and insightful woman who wielded a pen like a scalpel, exposing deep ideas and philosophies, exploring the differences and similarities and dealings between men and women, of governments and families and species.

And if you have never heard of Orsinia, or Rocannon's World, or Gethen, then you probably have heard of a powerful wizard, little more than a boy, who traveled to the ends of the earth to put right a terrible mistake he made in his arrogance, and learned to talk to dragons.

And yesterday she took her leave of us, and departed.

88 years is not a tragically early death, but she will be missed.

Ana -- If he's speaking [to a dragon?] in the draconic tongue, he can't use his everyday name nor lie, correct? He *has* to use his True Name ^_^

She had a long life, and a full one, that brought much wisdom and joy into the world.
