Ursula K. Le Guin was a master storyteller best known for her "thought experiments" -- like what if there were a planet in which the inhabitants had no fixed gender? She was also a fearless critic, and a trailblazer. But she wasn't all that comfortable being on camera.

Le Guin, and how her subject became a mentor and a friend.
