Ursula K. Le Guin Cover Blurb!

Came home to an email from Ursula K. Le Guin—yes, the Hugo, Nebula, Pushcart, and Newbury (and many more) Award-winning author of The Left Hand of Darkness and the Earthsea series, that Ursula K. Le Guin!—with an awesome cover blurb for Returning My Sister’s Face:

“Whimsy and malice—yes—also mystery, a very female sensuality, and wit. An elegant and entertaining book.”

Is it possible to die from too much squee?

    it may be very dangerous. I suggest you take only brief peeks at the blurb in order to acclimate yourself to your new everyday level of squee.

    *blows on fingers, inspects nails*
    I don’t know…
    *squints up to sky, as if gauging whether it will rain*
    It’s not like the superbness of your writing is unknown, you know…

    Who is this LeGuin person again? And why is she coming so late to the Eugie Adoration Club?

    *one more diffident glance at fingernails*
    Well, ok, I’ll contribute a squeeee to the kitty – but I still say this LeGuin is a latecomer…

    That’s so awesome! Medically, there is no record of anyone dying from a squee overdose. Trust me, I’m a doctor.

    That’s not true, I’m not a doctor. That probably hurts the chances of you trusting me, doesn’t it? You think I’d learn to never lead with the ‘I’m a doctor’ thing.

  24. Congrats, and —
