A most wonderful collection of short stories from the greatest Sci Fi writer of all time, Ursula K. Le Guin.
I think the last story in this collection, ‘Paradises Lost’, is not only my favourite in this collection but also one of my favourite stories by Ursula ever. If there’s any story that i would have liked her to expand upon it would be this one. But i look forward to it inspiring another great writer in the future to expand upon it.
But, all in all, a great collection, especially for fans of Ursula’s Hainish Cycle, with the majority of the stories being from that.
Would definitely recommend reading all of Ursula’s Hainish Cycle before reading this to understand the background to a lot of these shorts.
