It is always hard to rate a collection of stories as a whole. Most of the stories were good, a few I really liked, and a few others I just skipped ahead to the next story after a couple pages. So it was a bit of a mixed bag for me. Usually when she stuck to science fiction settings or ideas I enjoyed them the most. The more contemporary stories often felt rambling or uninteresting. I did like the author's introductions to each story. They usually gave interesting context to the stories. ( )

Four stars might be generous - many of these stories are dated in various ways, and I didn't enjoy them as much as, for example, the stories in Birthday of the World. But there's a certain quality of storytelling from Le Guin that is present even in stories where she's clearly limited by boxing herself into the constraints of what science fiction was as a genre in the 60s and 70s. Her thinking is expansive, and her touch with language is subtle and remarkable. ( )

She's hung up on trees
sneaking up to wreck your car
filling you with fear. ( )

This was on my list because I had read that there was a short story connected to her novel, the Dispossessed. There were some lovely science fiction stories with some phrases that made me smile. Her "psychomyths" I didn't enjoy as much. I like how she consistently uses the device of time loss that comes with space travel. I probably read this book of short stories years ago and forgot them all, but now they seem more meaningful to me. More Ursula, please. (June 01, 2004) ( )

Many of the stories in this collection are excellent, while some are only good. "The Ones Who Walk Away from Omelas" totally deserved the Hugo award it won. Reading "The Rule of Names" made me want to go back and read the Earthsea books again. "The Stars Below" reminded me of Germinal. Overall, it's a very good collection, and also shows Le Guin's progression as a writer, since there are some early stories of hers at the beginning. ( )

From far, from eve and morning
And you twelve-winded sky,
The stuff of life to knit me
Blew hither; here am I.

Now--for a breath I tarry
Nor yet disperse apart--
Take my hand quick and tell me,
What have you in your heart.

Speak now, and I will answer;
How shall I help you, say;
Ere to the wind's twelve quarters
I take my endless way.

FOREWORD

This collection is what painters call a retrospective; it gives a roughly chronological survey of my short stories during the first ten years after I broke into print, belated but undaunted, at the age of thirty-two.
How can you tell the legend from the fact on those worlds that lie so many years away?
How can you tell the legend from the fact on those worlds that lie so many years away?—planets without names, called by their people simply The World, planets without history, where the past is the matter of myth, and a returning explorer finds his own doings of a few years back have become the gestures of a god.
