Now in eBook: The Dispossessed!

If you had really good news and were so excited that you couldn’t stop talking about it, we’d forgive you a certain amount of repetition. Honest.  And in that same spirit of generosity, we’re sure you won’t mind us mentioning again our recently completed comprehensive agreement to publish almost all of Ursula K. Le Guin’s SF & Fantasy work, including eBook editions of the great Earthsea cycle and adding eBook rights to our existing SF Masterworks The Lathe of Heaven and The Dispossessed.

And we’re delighted to announce that the eBook edition of the latter is now available – so what are you waiting for?! Pick up your favoured device and enjoy!

Winner of the Hugo and Nebula Awards for best novel.

The Principle of Simultaneity is a scientific breakthrough which will revolutionize interstellar civilization by making possible instantaneous communication. It is the life work of Shevek, a brilliant physicist from the arid anarchist world of Anarres.

But Shevek’s work is being stifled by jealous colleagues, so he travels to Anarres’s sister-planet Urras, hoping to find more liberty and tolerance there. But he soon finds himself being used as a pawn in a deadly political game.



The Dispossessed is available as an SF Masterworks paperback and – now! – a Gateway eBook. You can find more of Ursula K. Le Guin’s work via her Author page on the Gateway website and read more about her in her entry at The Encyclopedia of Science Fiction.
