9780060914349: The Wind's Twelve Quarters: Stories

Ursula Le Guin has been recognized for more than thirty years as one of the most important writers in the sf field and her readership has extended far beyond the readership of the genre. This was her filrst collection of short stories and her best. It brings together almost all of her early short fiction and includes such poised and enduring masterpieces as the Hugo-winning ¿The Ones Who Walk Away from Omelas¿, the Nebula-winning ¿The Day before the Revolution¿ and seminal works like ¿Winter¿s King¿, ¿Vaster than Empires and More Slow¿ and ¿Nine Lives¿. The range, strength and beauty of the stories is breathtaking.

Book Description:
