'Le Guin's words are magical. Drink this magic up. Drown in it. Dream it' David Mitchell
These five superlative, evocative and enchanting stories range from a few hundred years before A Wizard of Earthsea to just before The Other Wind, and feature some of Le Guin's most popular characters, including the Wizard Ged himself. The stories are rounded off with an essay about Earthsea's history and people.
No Earthsea fan will want to be without this magical collection.
