The power of submission lies not in the ability to kneel before another, to give over one's body or in the wearing of a collar.

Ursula K. Le Guin, the immensely popular author who brought literary depth and a tough-minded feminist sensibility to science fiction and fantasy with books like “The Left Hand of Darkness” and the Earthsea series, died on Monday at her home in Portland, Oregon. She was 88.

Her son, Theo Downes-Le Guin, confirmed the death. He did not specify a cause but said she had been in poor health for several months.

The Fall's irascible frontman Mark E Smith has died at the age of 60.

News of his death was reported on the band's Twitter page and their record label's website.

He was the only constant member of the Manchester post-punk band, first formed by Smith with teenage friends Martin Bramah and Tony Friel in Prestwich in 1976.

Smith had been ill for some time, with the band cancelling US shows in August after he was hospitalised for issues to do with his throat, mouth and respiratory system. At the time, The Fall's manager, Pamela Vander, issued a statement saying: "Unfortunately, it would be a gamble on his health to fly anywhere over the next couple of months." He performed from a wheelchair in Wakefield in October and in late December further US dates were cancelled, with Vander citing "a full year of bad health" as the reason.
