Read full description of the books:
I got this as a gift, from a friend who knew I'd read the Earthsea books (the first four) more than once.
These tales are based on the world of Earthsea, and the author reports that they are best read 'after' reading the first four novels of the Earthsea collection. I would concur, as it adds the necessary depth and context for entering the world of these tales.
The first 'tale' in this book is called "The Finder"... and I found myself quietly weeping near the end of it. Stunning, to be moved so. It made me want to put the book down physically and stop thinking... to just explore the emotion that was flowing through my body. And to say a quiet Thank You to Ms. LeGuin for her incredible prose.
If you enjoyed the Earthsea books, you will find this set of tales a great addition. If you haven't read the Earthsea books, what are you waiting for? Do NOT be put off by the categorization of "Genre: Fantasy."
Ms. Le Guin is and always has been a woman who can challenge our hidden assumptions about life, culture, and the meaning of living as a human being in chaotic world situations. She's just clothed her wonderful explorations in a different milieu than contemporary times.

Read information about the authorUrsula K. Le Guin published twenty-two novels, eleven volumes of short stories, four collections of essays, twelve books for children, six volumes of poetry and four of translation, and has received many awards: Hugo, Nebula, National Book Award, PEN-Malamud, etc. Her recent publications include the novel Lavinia, an essay collection, Cheek by Jowl, and The Wild Girls. She lived in Portland, Oregon.
She was known for her treatment of gender (The Left Hand of Darkness, The Matter of Seggri), political systems (The Telling, The Dispossessed) and difference/otherness in any other form. Her interest in non-Western philosophies was reflected in works such as 'Solitude' and 'The Telling' but even more interesting are her imagined societies, often mixing traits extracted from her profound knowledge of anthropology acquired from growing up with her father, the famous anthropologist, Alfred Kroeber. The Hainish Cycle reflects the anthropologist's experience of immersing themselves in new strange cultures since most of their main characters and narrators (Le Guin favoured the first person narration) are envoys from a humanitarian organization, the Ekumen, sent to investigate or ally themselves with the people of a different world and learn their ways.
