UNREAL AND THE REAL: Selected Stories Where on Earth


UNREAL AND THE REAL: Selected Stories Where on Earth

URSULA K. LE GUIN    Book Number: 84906    Product format: Paperback

Chosen by the ever popular sci-fi writer herself because she likes them very much, the 18 stories in this first of a two-volume series include Texts, Sleepwalkers, Hand Cut Shell all from the collection Sea Road which take place in present-day Oregon. The White Donkey is set in a dreamed-up India and Gwilan's Harp somewhere along the borders of a fantasy Wales. Location of stories like The Water is Wide or The Lost Children is irrelevant and Half Past Four is pure realism but in a somewhat unusual form. The stories span the spectrum of fiction from realism through magical realism, satire, science fiction, surrealism and fantasy. Le Guin's interest is shown in these satirical, political and experimental stories including the Hugo and World Fantasy Award-winning Buffalo Gals 'Won't You Come Out Tonight', the rarely reprinted satirical short story The Lost Children and Jupiter Award-winner The Diary of the Rose, plus the title story of her Pulitzer Prize finalist collection, Unlocking the Air. A Gollancz paperback, 282pp with fairly small print.
