From the Publisher
"Susan Bernardo and Graham Murphy provide a useful, up-to-date reference work for intellectually-oriented fans, advanced high school and undergraduate students, and even graduate students and more advanced scholars in need of a thorough introduction to or a quick update on the foremost woman sf and fantasy writer today."
Science Fiction Studies
"As part of a series on popular and critically-acclaimed authors selected by high school teachers and librarians, this volume features the works of Portland, Oregon-based writer Ursula Le Guin. The brief biography of her upbringing by noted anthropologists helps explain why Le Guin considers her writing to transcend science fiction/fantasy. Bernardo and Murphy offer readings of a dozen of her works from The Left Hand of Darkness (1969) to Tales from Eathsea (2001), a list of her many awards, and a recent e-mail interview."
