About the Author

Ursula K. Le Guin is the author of more than one hundred short stories, two collections of essays, four volumes of poetry, and nineteen novels. Her best-known fantasy works, the Earthsea books, have sold millions of copies in America and England, and have been translated into sixteen languages. Her first major work of science fiction, "The Left Hand of Darkness", is considered epochmaking in the field because of its radical investigation of gender roles and its moral and literary complexity.

Three of Le Guin's books have been finalists for the American Book Award and the Pulitzer Prize, and among the many honors her writing has received are the National Book Award, five Hugo Awards, five Nebula Awards, the Kafka Prize, a Pushcart Prize, and the Harold D. Vursell Award of the American Academy and Institute of Arts and Letters. She lives in Portland, Oregon.

From AudioFile

Years after we thought the "Earthsea Trilogy" was complete, Ursula Le Guin has treated her fans to a fresh helping of stories dealing with her fantastic realm of wizards, mages, and dragons. The five stories in this collection are set before and during the original trilogy, and provide background to the events and characters of those novels. Amanda Karr gently reads "The Finder," set years before A Wizard of Earthsea. Gabrielle de Cuir reads "Dragonfly," about a woman's struggle to enter the all-male school of wizardry on the island of Roke. The author adds her own personal touch reading "The Bones of the Earth," another story set before the events of the original trilogy, a touching story of the lonely and stubborn life of a wizard. Scott Brick reads "On the High Marsh," a story with as many characteristics of a good Western as a fantasy. Stefan Rudnicki, who produced the audiobook, also reads a tale, and creative consultant Harlan Ellison provides a slightly silly postscript.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great series and a classic
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on February 6, 2018
Good to get the whole series in Kindle format.
However, the missing star is due to the fact that the map at the beginning of each volume are VERY POORLY reproduced.
Their low definition makes it virtually impossible to decipher the names of the islands.
In addition, the missing middle map section deletes some of the islands, or parts of them, which makes it all but unusable.
A reader who doesn't have a hard copy to refer to, or who wouldn't make the effort to download a high quality map from the author's website, would be hard put to follow the travel of the protagonists.
The map sections should be resampled as a matter of urgency, as they are essential to the understanding of the story.
