This is the first time these beloved classics have been available as eBooks, and coincides with the first episode of the BBC Radio 4 adaptation. Radio 4 has also recorded an interview with Ursula K. Le Guin and an adaptation of her Hugo and Nebula Award-winning masterpiece, The Left Hand of Darkness.
We could go on at great length about Ursula K. Le Guin‘s wonderful books; about how she has mastered the genres of science fiction and fantasy, both; about how she ranks with the very best writers in and out of genre; about how many modern writers are influenced by her (whether they’re willing to admit it or not). But really . . . wouldn’t you rather be reading Earthsea than reading us talking about it?
