Description
(Winner of the 2002 Endeavour Award and the Locus Award for Best Collection) Published between Tehanu and The Other Wind, this collection of five tales and a reference work explores and extends the world established by the Earthsea novels, yet each story stands on its own. In the novella "the Finder," the school of magic is established on the island of Roke, while "Dragonfly" is a postscript to Tehanu. The other stories—"Darkrose and Diamond"; "The Bones of the Earth"; and "On the High Marsh"—are joined by a fictional history of Earthsea and its people, languages, literature, and magic, as well as two new maps of Earthsea. One of the most distinguished fantasy and science fiction writers of all time, Ursula K. Le Guin has won the Nebula Award, the Hugo Award, and the National Book Award. She is best known for her singular Earthsea fantasy series for readers 12 to adult, set on a world of many islands, where dragons and humans share a distant past, where magic keeps the world in balance and wizards can change their shape, and where one's true name is a secret that holds power. Originally a trilogy, begun in 1968 with A Wizard of Earthsea, the Earthsea cycle is a series of five novels—all of which have won literary honors—and a collection of tales.

"The magic of Earthsea is primal; the lessons of Earthsea remain as potent, as wise, and as necessary as anyone could dream."—Neil Gaiman
