The National Book Award-winning author takes flight with this bestselling collection of speculative fiction where a woman visits fifteen otherworldly— yet familiar—societies.

The New York Times

A number of tales offer bracing variations on a theme that might be crudely summarized as ''It's the ecology, stupid.'' Even Le Guin's overtly cautionary tales have a delicacy that disarms resistance. Outstanding among these are the almost unbearably poignant ''Fliers of Gy'' and ''The Island of the Immortals,'' which break new ground in exploring the dangers of getting what you wish for. — Gerald Jonas
