‘I’d love to sit at my desk one day and discover that I could think and write like Ursula Le Guin’ Roddy Doyle

A collection of five magical tales of Earthsea, the fantastical realm created by a master storyteller that has held readers enthralled for more than three decades.

“The Finder”, a novella set a few hundred years before A Wizard of Earthsea, when he Archipelago was dark and troubled, reveals how the famous school on Roke was started. In “The Bones of the Earth” the wizards who first taught Ged demonstrate how humility, if great enough, can rein in an earthquake. Sometimes wizards an pursue alternative careers – and “Darkrose and Diamond” is also a delightful story of young courtship. Return to the time when Ged was Archmage of Earthsea in “On the High Marsh”, a story about the love of power and the power of love. And “Dragonfly”, showing how a determined woman can break the glass ceiling of male magedom, provides a bridge – a dragon bridge – between Tehanu and The Other Wind.

The Other Wind

A masterpiece of chilling narration’ GUARDIAN

‘Wise, graceful, classic myth-making’ THE SCOTSMAN

The wizard Alder comes from Roke to the island of Gont in search of the Archmage, Lord Sparrowhawk, once known as Ged. The man who was once the most powerful wizard in the Islands now lives with his wife Tenar and their adopted daughter Tehanu. Alder needs help: his beloved wife died and in his dreams she calls him to the land of the dead – and now the dead are haunting him, begging for release. He can no longer sleep, and the Wizards of Earthsea are worried.
But there is more at stake than the unquiet rest of one minor wizard: for the dragons of Earthsea have arisen, to reclaim the lands that were once theirs. Only Tehanu, herself daughter of a dragon, can talk to them; it may be that Alder’s dreams hold the key to the salvation of Earthsea and all the peoples who live there.
