    From acclaimed author Ursula K. Le Guin, and with an introduction by Karen Joy Fowler, a collection of thoughts - always adroit, often acerbic - on aging, belief, the state of literature, and the state of the nation. Ursula K. Le Guin has taken listeners to imaginary worlds for decades. Now she's in the last great frontier of life, old age, and exploring new literary territory: the blog, a forum where her voice - sharp, witty, as compassionate as it is critical - shines. No Time to Spare collects the best of Ursula's blog, presenting perfectly crystallized dispatches on what matters.

    In this collection of short stories, Sita Dulip from Cincinnati finds a method of transcending the miserable experience of flying. A mere kind of twist and a slipping bend - easier to do than to describe - takes her not to Denver, but to bizarre societies and cultures that sometimes mirror our own and sometimes open doors into the alien. Changing Planes is by turns funny, disturbing, and thought provoking.
