Ursula K. Le Guin - A ​sötétség balkeze
A ​nyolcvan tagból álló világszövetség küldötte, Ai azzal a szándékkal száll le a Tél bolygón, hogy az itt élőket megnyerje egy nagyobb közösség ügyének. Sajátos biológiai felépítésű és különböző társadalmi szerkezetben élő embereket talál, akiket megjelenése választás elé állít. Az egymás közti torzsalkodás vagy a magasabb közösségi cél érdekében való összefogás alternatívái merülnek fel. Ursula K. Le Guin sci-fi regénye pozitív választ ad a felvetett kérdésre.

Ursula K. Le Guin - Die Geißel des Himmels
Es ist ein geringfügiges Vergehen, weswegen George Orr sich einer Therapie unterziehen muß: Medikamentenmißbrauch. Der Patient tut alles, um seine Träume zu unterdrücken, worauf sein behandelnder Arzt, der Psychiater Dr. Haber, eine gewöhnliche psychische Störung diagnostiziert. Doch George Orrs Träume sind keine gewöhnlichen Träume, denn sie können die Realität verändern. Von dem (freilich nicht ganz uneigennützigen) Wunsch beseelt, eine bessere Welt zu erschaffen, zwingt Dr. Haber seinen anbefohlenen Schützling, eine Reihe künstlich induzierter Träume zu erleben, bis von der Welt, wie wir sie kennen, keine Spur mehr übrig ist. Die Geißel des Himmels ist ein wunderbar ironischer Abgesang auf die Psychoanalyse, ein Manifest für die Macht der Phantasie, die ebenso grenzenlos wie unbeherrschbar ist, und nicht zuletzt ein modernes Gleichnis über das unausweichliche Scheitern von Weltverbesserern aller Art, auch wenn ihre Absichten und Motive durchaus edel sein mögen.

Ursula K. Le Guin - Das Wort für Welt ist Wald
Der kolonisierte Waldplanet New Tahiti ist ein fast idealer Rohstofflieferant: der Holzbestand ist nahezu unerschöpflich, und die grün bepelzten Ureinwohner sind kein bisschn aggressiv. Vermutlich haben sie kien genug Grips, um Scherereien zu machen, oder einfach es ist gegen ihre Natur. Dann allerdings stellt sich die Frage: Wer hat die entlegene Holzarbeiterkolonie in Schutt und Asche gelegt? Diese klassische Dystopie ist zugleich subtiler Ethno-Thriller und unterläuft ganz nebenbei vertraute "Helden"-Bilder aus Literatur und Geschichte. Ursula K. LeGuin gehört zu den bedeutendsten SciFi-Autorinnen der Gegenwart. Ihr mit etlichen Litaraturpreisen geehrtes Werk umfasst Fantasy, Science Fiction, Jugend- und Kinderbücher, Essays und Gedichte. Das Wort für Welt ist Wald wurde mit dem Hugo- und dem Nebula-Award ausgezeichnet.

Ursula K. Le Guin - The ​Tombs of Atuan
Often ​compared to Tolkien's Middle-earth or Lewis's Narnia, Ursula K. Le Guin's Earthsea is a stunning fantasy world that grabs quickly at our hearts, pulling us deeply into its imaginary realms. Four books (A Wizard of Earthsea, The Tombs of Atuan, The Farthest Shore, and Tehanu) tell the whole Earthsea cycle--a tale about a reckless, awkward boy named Sparrowhawk who becomes a wizard's apprentice after the wizard reveals Sparrowhawk's true name. The boy comes to realize that his fate may be far more important than he ever dreamed possible. Le Guin challenges her readers to think about the power of language, how in the act of naming the world around us we actually create that world. Teens, especially, will be inspired by the way Le Guin allows her characters to evolve and grow into their own powers. In this second book of Le Guin's Earthsea series, readers will meet Tenar, a priestess to the "Nameless Ones" who guard the catacombs of the Tombs of Atuan. Only Tenar knows the passageways of this dark labyrinth, and only she can lead the young wizard Sparrowhawk, who stumbles into its maze, to the greatest treasure of all. Will she?

Ursula K. Le Guin - The ​Complete Orsinia
The ​inaugural volume of _Library of America_’s Ursula K. Le Guin edition gathers her complete Orsinian writings, enchanting, richly imagined historical fiction collected here for the first time. Written before Le Guin turned to science fiction, the novel _Malafrena_ is a tale of love and duty set in the central european country of Orsinia in the early nineteenth century, when it is ruled by the Austrian empire. The stories originally published in _Orsinian Tales_ (1976) offer brilliantly rendered episodes of personal drama set against a history that spans Orsinia’s emergence as an independent kingdom in the twelfth century to its absorption by the eastern Bloc after World War II. The volume is rounded out by two additional stories that bring the history of Orsinia up to 1989, the poem _Folksong from the Montayna Province_, Le Guin’s first published work, and two never before published songs in the Orisinian language. LIBRARY OF AMERICA is an independent nonprofit cultural organization founded in 1979 to preserve our nation’s literary heritage by publishing, and keeping permanently in print, America’s best and most significant writing. The Library of America series includes more than 300 volumes to date, authoritative editions that average 1,000 pages in length, feature cloth covers, sewn bindings, and ribbon markers, and are printed on premium acid-free paper that will last for centuries.

Ursula K. Le Guin - No ​Time to Spare

Ursula K. Le Guin - City ​of Illusions
Earth, ​like the rest of the Known Worlds, has fallen to the Shing. Scattered here and there, small groups of humans live in a state of semi-barbarism. They have lost the skills, science and knowledge that had been Earth's in the golden age of the League of Worlds, and whenever a colony of humans tries to rekindle the embers of a half-forgotten technology, the Shing, with their strange, mindlying power, crush them out. There is one man who can stand against the malign Shing, but he is an alien with amber eyes and must first prove to paranoid humanity that he himself is not a creature of the Shing.

Ursula K. Le Guin - El ​ojo de la garza
El ​ojo de la garza es la historia de dos comunidades de proscritos que, expulsados de la Tierra, viven en un remoto planeta. Una de estas comunidades, los violentos y ambiciosos habitantes de la Ciudad, trata de oprimir a la otra, heredera del movimiento pacifista que comenzara tiempo atrás en la Tierra. La heroína de la novela, Luz, abandona los privilegios y la seguridad doméstica de la Ciudad e intenta buscar su identidad personal, la libertad y el amor, entre esas gentes pacíficas que viven en los límites del mundo. Por último, decide encabezar una expedición a las tierras salvajes (enfrentada a la indiferencia de la naturaleza y a sus propios miedos) para fundar una nueva colonia y empezar una nueva vida en tierras desconocidas.

Ursula K. Le Guin - Annals ​of the Western Shore
_Ursula ​Le Guin's beloved YA series gathered for the first time in a deluxe collector's edition for every reader._ This fifth volume in the definitive Library of America edition of Ursula K. Le Guin's work presents a trilogy of coming-of-age stories set in the Western Shore, a world where young people find themselves struggling not just against racism, prejudice, and slavery, but with how to live with the mysterious and magical gifts they have been given. All three novels feature the generous voice and deeply human concerns that mark all Le Guin's work, and together they form an elegant anthem to the revolutionary and transformative power of words and storytelling. In _Gifts_, Orrec and Gry will inherit both their families' domains and their "gifts," the ability to communicate with animals, or control a mind, or maim or kill with only a word and gesture. Both discover their gifts are not what they thought. In _Voices_, Memer lives in a city conquered by fundamentalist and superstitious soldiers who have made reading and writing forbidden. But in Memer's house there is a secret room where the last few books in the city have been hidden. And in the Nebula Award-winning _Powers_, the young slave Gavir can remember any book after reading it just once. It makes him valuable, but it also makes him a threat. Gav sets out to understand who he is, where he came from, and what his gift means. This deluxe edition features Le Guin's own previously unseen hand-drawn maps. Included in an appendix are essays and interviews about the novels, as well as Le Guin's pronunciation guide to the names and languages of the Western Shore.

Ursula K. Le Guin - The ​Word for World is Forest
Centuries ​in the future, Terrans have established a logging colony & military base named "New Tahiti" on a tree-covered planet whose small, green-furred, big-eyed inhabitants have a culture centered on lucid dreaming. Terran greed spirals around native innocence & wisdom, overturning the ancient society. Humans have learned interstellar travel from the Hainish (the origin-planet of all humanoid races, including Athsheans). Various planets have been expanding independently, but during the novel it's learned that the League of All Worlds has been formed. News arrives via an ansible, a new discovery. Previously they had been cut off, 27 light years from home. The story occurs after The Dispossessed, where both the ansible & the League of Worlds are unrealised. Also well before Planet of Exile, where human settlers have learned to coexist. The 24th century has been suggested. Terran colonists take over the planet locals call Athshe, meaning "forest," rather than "dirt," like their home planet Terra. They follow the 19th century model of colonization: felling trees, planting farms, digging mines & enslaving indigenous peoples. The natives are unequipped to comprehend this. They're a subsistence race who rely on the forests & have no cultural precedent for tyranny, slavery or war. The invaders take their land without resistance until one fatal act sets rebellion in motion & changes the people of both worlds forever.

Ursula K. Le Guin - Finding ​My Elegy
"She ​never loses touch with her reverence for the immense what is." — Margaret Atwood Though internationally known and honored for her imaginative fiction, Ursula K. Le Guin started out as a poet, and since 1959 has never ceased to publish poems. Finding My Elegy distills her life's work, offering a selection of the best from her six earlier volumes of poetry and introducing a powerful group of poems, at once earthy and transcendent, written in the first decade of the twenty-first century. The fruit of over a half century of writing, the seventy selected and seventy-seven new poems consider war and creativity, motherhood and the natural world, and glint with humor and vivid beauty. These moving works of art are a reckoning with a whole life.

Ursula K. Le Guin - The ​Unreal and the Real
For ​fifty years, National Book Award winner Ursula K. Le Guin’s stories have shaped the way her readers see the world. Her work gives voice to the voiceless, hope to the outsider, and speaks truth to power. Le Guin’s writing is witty, wise, both sly and forthright; she is a master craftswoman. This two-volume selection of almost forty stories taken from her eleven collections was made by Le Guin herself, as was the organizing principle of splitting the stories into the nominally realistic and fantastic. Where on Earth focuses on Le Guin’s interest in realism and magic realism and includes eighteen of Le Guin’s satirical, political, and experimental earthbound stories. Highlights include World Fantasy and Hugo Award winner “Buffalo Gals, Won’t You Come Out Tonight,” the rarely reprinted satirical short, “The Lost Children,” Jupiter Award winner, “The Diary of the Rose,” and the title story of her Pulitzer Prize finalist collection Unlocking the Air. Stories in this volume were originally published in venues as varied as Playboy, TriQuarterly, Orbit, Redbook, and The New Yorker. Companion volume Outer Space Inner Lands includes Le Guin’s best known nonrealistic stories. Both volumes include new introductions by the author. The Unreal and the Real is a much-anticipated event which will delight, amuse, and provoke.

Ursula K. Le Guin - A ​megtalált és az elveszett II.
Ursula ​K. Le Guin meghatározó alakja az amerikai irodalomnak. Képzeletét, párját ritkító stílusérzékét, emberi érzékenységét, határozottságát, humorát és keménységét arra használta, hogy teljesen új társadalmakat, emberi viszonyulásokat vizsgáljon meg, és ezeken keresztül kutassa az örök emberit – mindazt, amiért az emberekre föl lehet nézni és mindazt, amit egy felvilágosult társadalomnak el kell vetnie. Hitvallása volt, hogy hangot adjon az elnyomottaknak, a némáknak, az irodalom tükrén keresztül fényre hozza a legintimebb és legfájdalmasabb tapasztalásokat. A Valós és valótlan című novellagyűjtemény után a nemrég elhunyt szerző hosszabb elbeszéléseiből és kisregényeiből válogat A megtalált és az elveszett két kötete.

Ursula K. Le Guin - The ​Ones Who Walk Away from Omelas
Some ​inhabitants of a peaceful kingdom cannot tolerate the act of cruelty that underlies its happiness. The story "Omelas" was first published in New Dimensions 3, a hard-cover science fiction anthology edited by Robert Silverberg, in October 1973, and the following year it won Le Guin the prestigious Hugo Award for best short story. It was subsequently printed in her short story collection The Wind's Twelve Quarters in 1975.

Ursula K. Le Guin - Hainish ​Novels and Stories 2.
The ​star-spanning story of humanity’s colonization of other planets, Ursula K. Le Guin’s visionary Hainish novels and stories redrew the map of modern science fiction, making it a rich field for literary explorations of “the nature of human nature,” as Margaret Atwood has described Le Guin’s subject. Now, for the first time, the complete Hainish novels and stories are collected in a definitive two-volume Library of America edition, with new introductions by the author. This second volume in a definitive two-volume edition gathers Le Guin’s final two Hainish novels, The Word for World Is Forest, in which Earth enslaves another planet to strip its natural resources, and The Telling, the harrowing story of a society which has suppressed its own cultural heritage. Rounding out the volume are seven short stories and the story suite Five Ways to Forgiveness, published here in full for the first time. The endpapers feature a full-color chart of the known worlds of Hainish descent.

Ursula K. Le Guin - Steering ​the Craft
One ​of the great writers of the twentieth century offers an exhilarating workout for writers of narrative fiction or nonfiction. With her sharp mind and wit and a delightful sense of playfulness, Le Guin has turned a successful workshop into a self-guided voyage of discovery for a writer working alone, a writing group, or a class. Steering the Craft is concerned with the basic elements of narrative: how a story is told, what moves it and what clogs it. This book does not plod through plot, character, beginning-middle-and-end. Nor does it discuss writing as self-expression, as therapy, or as spiritual adventure. Each topic includes examples that clarify and exercises that intensify awareness of the techniques of storytelling.

Ursula K. Le Guin - Ursula ​K. Le Guin összes Szigetvilág története II.

Le Guin összes Szigetvilág történetének második részében. Az ötödik könyv egy novelláskötet.

A sorozat hatodik darabja egy új regény, a Más szelek szárnyán, melyben Kóbor visszatér, hogy ismét segítsen megmenteni a világot. A történet főszereplője Éger, az egyszerű falusi varázsló, aki csupán a törött tárgyak helyreállításához ért, ám ez az erő is könnyedén a pusztítás forrásává válhat. Éjszakánként a holtak földjét az élők világától elválasztó falról álmodik, mely egyre gyengül és ha átszakad, az árnyak elözönlik egész Óceánföldet. Ki máshoz fordulhatna hát segítségért, mint ahhoz az emberhez, aki élve megjárta a sötétség birodalmát... A méltán népszerű sorozat a high-fantasy legjobb mítoszteremtő hagyományait ötvözi sajátos látásmódjával, melynek eredménye egy briliáns mese izgalmas kalandokkal és szeretetreméltó szereplőkkel, akik úgy tudnak hősökké válni, hogy közben mindvégig igazi emberek maradnak.

A country where life is harsh, dreams are gentle, and people feel torn by powerful forces and fight to remain whole. In this enchanting collection, Ursula K. Le Guin brings to mainstream fiction the same compelling mastery of word and deed, of story and character, of violence and love, that has won her the Pushcart Prize, and the Kafka and National Book Awards.

Ursula K. Le Guin - Powers
The ​final part in the story that started with _Gifts,_ and the tale of Gry Barre of Roddmant and Orrec Caspro of Caspromant, two children with extraordinary powers.
