Ep 457 - The Comet by W.E.B. Dubois and Woeful Tales from Mahigul by Ursula K. Le Guin

We're celebrating the fiction-filled and fictional holiday of Short Story Week by sharing two short stories with y'all this week. First up is The Comet, a speculative sci-fi tale by civil rights activist and writer W.E.B. DuBois from his collection Darkwater: Voices from Within the Veil. After that is Woeful Tales from Mahigul, a short story collection within a short story collection by Ursula K. Le Guin from her collection Changing Planes.

Check out our previous LeGuin episodes on The Ones Who Walk Away From Omelas and The Dispossessed.

Our theme music was composed by Nick Lerangis.
