Ursula K. Le Guin has contributed another entertaining and lighthearted post to Book View Café — Pard and the Time Machine:
People who think of me as a Sci Fi Writer will not be surprised to hear that there is a time machine in my study. So far it hasn’t transported me among the Eloi and the Morlocks or back among the dinosaurs. Fine with me. I’ll take the time I got, thanks. All my Time Machine does is save stuff from my computer and provide interest and occupation to my cat.
Even in jest, it’s not often one of the greats refers to him- or herself as a “Sci Fi Writer.” I think my beanie propeller did a 360 when I read that.
