“Le Guin writes in quiet, straightforward sentences about people who feel they are being torn apart by massive forces in society–technological, political, economic–and who fight courageously to remain whole.” ―The New York Times Book Review
“As good as any contemporary at creating worlds, imaginary or our own…Le Guin writes with painstaking intelligence. Her characters are complex and haunting, and her writing is remarkable for its sinewy grace.” ―Time Magazine
Ursula K. Le Guin was one of the greatest science fiction writers and many times the winner of the Hugo and Nebula Awards. Her career as a novelist was launched by the three novels contained in Worlds of Exile and Illusion. These novels, Rocannon’s world, Planet of Exile, and City of Illusions, are set in the same universe as Le Guin’s groundbreaking classic, The Left Hand of Darkness.
