Sunday Stamps: Authors

 Good day and welcome to another gray day in the American Midwest.  It's time for Sunday Stamps.

Like others who are participating, I am sharing a relatively recent stamp from the USPS of Ursula Le Guin.

The background image is of a scene from The Left Hand of Darkness.  A wonderful fantasy and science fiction writer.  Her Earthsea trilogy featured a school for wizards - hmmmm.

Also a newish stamp:

August Wilson, a playwright, who is described here by the USPS.  Two of his plays are Fences and The Piano Lesson.

I have a page on Facebook: keep up with my infrequent quilt and stamp posts at

Ursula Le Guin is popular this week, rightly so its a stunning stamp. I'm guessing that is the planet Winter from Left Hand of Darkness which I've never finished as the long names always confuse me. Maybe I'm due another go:)
Never heard of August Wilson, learning through stamps.

Left hand of Darkness is worth it! Try it again.

Joy, Four Ways to Forgiveness is also wonderful (four novellas with a common theme), sometimes issued as Five Ways to Forgiveness with an additional Werel/Yeowe story included.

Veridian - UKLG was the origin of wizarding schools - hard to imagine Harry Potter without having had Ged beforehand.

I hope I get an Ursula Le Guin stamp, it really is stunning.
I'd not heard of August Wilson,but after looking him up realize he wrote Ma Rainey's Black Bottom. I watched the movie not that long ago.

Le Guin seems the winner this week... :)
As others below, I haven't read any book by August Wilson.
