Ursula K. Le Guin has made a career out of smashing the fuck out of literary norms and genres with her subversive science fiction, and now, she’s finally getting some recognition from the prestigious Library of America.

The venerable publisher is primarily reserved for more stuffy “literary” writers, so it’s pretty groundbreaking that it will publish a volume of Le Guin’s writings next month. It’s not without precedent, though — several volumes of Kurt Vonnegut’s work have been published under the Library’s iconic, slick, black covers, not to mention Le Guin’s contemporary, Philip K. Dick. Still, if you don’t count Vonnegut as real science fiction, then Le Guin and Dick — who went to the same high school — are the only science fiction writers who’ve been given personal volumes.

Le Guin’s inclusion in the Library of America is also notable not just because she’s generally classified as a science-fiction writer, but also because she’s being canonized by the Library of America while she’s still alive. More unique still, the first Library of America Le Guin book will not be a fancy reissue of her most well-known science fiction novels and stories. Here, you’d probably expect this LOA volume to include Le Guin’s most famous short stories like “The Ones Who Walk Away from Omelas,” or the “Word for World is Forest,” along side her groundbreaking gender-bending novel The Left Hand of Darkness. Nope. Le Guin will instead publish a collection of various writings called “The Complete Orsinia.”

Published throughout Le Guin’s career, the Orsinia tales are set in an imaginary European country, but the writing isn’t necessarily science fiction. On the choice to have the Library of America publish her lesser-known Orsinia stories over her more famous books (like A Wizard of Earthsea) Le Guin told the New York Times “Theres some innate arrogance here: I want to do it my way.”

Ursula K. Le Guin: The Complete Orsinia will be published by The Library of America on September 6. Meanwhile, a new collection of Le Guin’s non-fiction called *Words are My Matter” will be published by Small Beer Press on October 11.

We’re all in the Long Night while waiting on Game of Thrones Season 8. Now, possibly out of desperation, one fan has cooked up a horribly tragic theory about how Jon Snow will have to become the Night King to stop his undead army. If true, this would reshape everything we know about the Night King, Azor Ahai, and how the series will end.

There’s a new fan theory emerging that Rey’s parents will be revealed in Star Wars: Episode IX and that this secret will be both familiar and new, while also undoing a major thematic turn from The Last Jedi.

Slash Film noticed a new fan theory on Monday from YouTube account Film Threat. The narrator, Chris Gore, unpacks this theory as part of a “Franchise Forecast” video, which drops the bombshell early on that Solo: A Star Wars Story was all about Rey’s parents. Meaning that Rey’s parents could be Han Solo and Qi’ra.

This is some multi-reality brain magic shit.” Emma Stone’s words in the new trailer for Maniac, an upcoming Netflix original series, seem to do a pretty good job of encapsulating the plot. Created by Patrick Somerville (The Leftovers), directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga (It, True Detective Season 1), and starring Stone, Jonah Hill, Sally Field, and Justin Theroux, Maniac looks like a cross between Inception and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. In other words, it looks awesome.

The upcoming live-action Star Wars show will cost a whole bunch of Credits — or perhaps a whole bunch of Gold Dragons. The reported budget for Jon Favreau’s 10-episode series is $100 million, or about $10 million per episode. That puts the show on par with Game of Thrones, HBO’s tremendously expensive (and popular) fantasy series.

It’s almost time for back to school — Huntress school, that is. At RTX 2018, Rooster Teeth Animation announced the release date of the next season of the studio’s crown jewel, western anime RWBY.

RWBY Volume 6 will premiere October 27. And in an interview with Inverse, series star Lindsay Jones (the voice of Ruby Rose) reveals that Volume 6 will see the reunion of Team RWBY. The story will also build upon the significant growth of the characters from Volumes 4 and 5.
