The first volume of collected short stories by multiple award-winner Ursula K. Le Guin, selected by the author herself.

For over half a century, multiple award-winner Ursula K. Le Guin's stories have shaped the way her readers see the world. Her work gives voice to the voiceless, hope to the outsider and speaks truth to power. Le Guin's writing is witty, wise, both sly and forthright; she is a master craftswoman.

This two-volume selection of almost 40 stories selected from her glittering career was made by Ursula Le Guin herself. She has chosen to organise them thematically, splitting the stories into the nominally realistic and fantastic.

Where on Earth focuses on Ursula Le Guin's interest in realism and magic realism and includes 18 of her satirical, political and experimental earthbound stories. Highlights include World Fantasy and Hugo Award-winner 'Buffalo Gals, Won't You Come Out Tonight', the rarely reprinted satirical short, 'The Lost Children', Jupiter Award-winner, 'The Diary of the Rose' and the title story of her Pulitzer Prize finalist collection 'Unlocking the Air'.

About the Author

Ursula Le Guin is one of the finest writers of our time. Her books have attracted millions of devoted readers and won many awards, including the National Book Award, the Hugo and Nebula Awards and a Newbury Honor. Among her novels The Left Hane of Darkness, The Dispossessed and the six books of Earthsea have already attained undisputed classic status; and her latest series, the Annals of the Western Shore is joining them. She lives in Portland, Oregon.

THE REAL AND THE UNREAL as a pair are brilliant to read, provocative, and handsomely written Tor.com
