Ursula Le Guin navigates cultures and the movements of the soul with such grace, I am awed. This is the first Ursula K. Le Guin book that I’ve read and to be honest, I’m a little disappointed. although it is a beautiful story in its own right it also struck me as a seamless contemporary re-working of a well-known Japanese fairy-tale This is the first Ursula K. I found it to be rife with exposition and long, rambling paragraphs about how the various technologies functioned even though in her introductory essay, Le Guin basically talked about how it’s all actually impossible.

Another Story, or. The story tells of a poor fisherman, Urashima, who went out daily in his boat alone on the quiet sea that lay between his home island and the mainland. He was a beautiful young man with long, black hair, and the daughter of the king of the sea saw him as he leaned over the side of the boat and she gazed up to see the floating shadow cross the wide circle of the sky.

Le Guin's 1994 collection of eight stories include three longer pieces that are ancillary parts of her Hainish Cycle, along with five other stories.

The two outliers here are "The Rock That Changed Things" and "The Kerastion." The first story is a parable about oppression with a strident feminist message; Le Guin admits that "its anger makes it heavy" but I would argue that the story's venom is not only justifiable but also makes it unexpectedly powerful, and it's my favorite of the non-Hainish stories. "The Kerastion" is one of Le Guin's anthropological tales with Daoist underpinnings that tend to be too touchy-feely for my own tastes; readers with more quasi-spiritual inclinations than mine will better appreciate its Gnostic touches ("So all that is made in the likeness of the Mother is made in sand").

Le Guin labels two throwaway pieces as jokes. "The First Contact With the Gorgonoids" shows a humorous, even silly side that will surprise readers of Le Guin's novels; it reminds me a little of Shirley Jackson's darkly comic stories--and it's as fun as it is light. But "The Ascent of the North Face" is an innocuous four-page yarn that goes on two pages too long (although I'll admit that I initially didn't figure out what it was "about"). There is also a sinister wit to be found in "Newton's Sleep," which posits a utopian society on a spaceflight that has fled a devastated earth, only to find that, in spite of the mission's careful selection process, the refugees have still brought along everything that makes them--well, human.

The meat of the book, and the trio of stories that have received the most attention, are the Hainish tales. Presented as a sequence, they are all valuable additions to the Le Guin's mythic creation and, together, track the development of Le Guin's "fake technology" of instantaneous space flight based on her fictional churten theory. I agree with everyone else here that the last selection, "Another Story, or A Fisherman of the Inland Sea," is the best of the lot--not simply for its time travel elements but also for the creation of the character of Hideo and for the story's deliberate echoes of "The Dispossessed." Yet "The Shobies' Story" is also quite clever. We all understand that everybody perceives the same events differently, but what would it be like, Le Guin wonders, if space travel exacerbated the disparities in our perceptions? How would we get our lives back in sync?

Le Guin includes an introduction that is somewhat valuable for explaining the geneses of these tales, but which also strikes me as somewhat defensive about speculative fiction--an insecurity that was perhaps understandable a half-century ago but seems bizarrely gratuitous and dated now that science fiction has in the last two decades fully entered the mainstream of American literature. Preaching to the choir, this essay is unlikely, in any case, to be read by any of the wheezing members of the literary vanguard who had built their crumbling fortress against genre fiction.

Has some of my most favorite stories ever

Ursula LeGuin is my favorite author, and this is one of my favorite books. I originally checked it out from the library, but then decided I needed my own copy. This is a collection of short stories from various worlds in the Hain Universe. I am rather fond of the Planet O, and this has another story from this setting. My other favorite book is The Birthday of The World.

wonderful collection from ursula. i didnt live every story but i enjoyed them all and loved a couple. they explore the timeless leguin themes, so if you are a fan i recommend, though not if its your first exposure to her.

The titular story is by far my favorite. Ms Le Guin is a storyteller of the highest order. Weaving intricate and seemingly alien ideas of instantaneous travel (with the excitement of the repercussions thereof almost tangible) together with the simple joys of extended family, rural life and young/true love. A coming of age story in some ways, a book about choices perhaps, a tale of a second chance and two lives lived and both remembered.

Fascinating tales of some truly bizarre societies within the Ekumen; makes Gethenian society (The Left Hand of Darkness) look simple in comparison! Well done!!

i like this whole anthology despite not generally being a fan of short stories. however, it is the last one (the title story) i find most haunting. i come back to it again and again.
