We published the first three books in April – to coincide with the first episode of a BBC Radio 4 adaptation (a celebration of the author, which also included an interview with Ursula K. Le Guin and an adaptation of her Hugo and Nebula Award-winning masterpiece, The Left Hand of Darkness) – and now the entire sequence is available in eBook for the first tiem.
And, as we said back in April: 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 the six books of Earthsea than reading us talking about it?
Yep. Us, too.
