Foremost among that group of writers who have changed science fiction, Ursula K. Le Guin has created a profound and transformational literature. These award-winning stories range from the everyday to the outer limits of experience, where the quantum uncertainties of space and time are resolved only in the depths of the human heart. Here we have starships that sail, literally, on wings of song...musical instruments to be played at funerals only...ansibles for faster-than-light communication...even orbiting arks designed to save a doomed humanity.

Her best-known fantasy works, the Earthsea books, have sold millions of copies in America and England, and have been translated into sixteen languages. Her first major work of science fiction, The Left Hand of Darkness, is considered epochmaking in the field because of its radical investigation of gender roles and its moral and literary complexity.
