Synopses & Reviews
A stunning collection of science fiction and fantasy stories from Le Guin's classic Hainish universe. "A stylish, intricate and above all human collection" "SFX"
Six of the eight stories in this collection are set in Le Guin's Hainish cycle. The title story, 'The Birthday of the World', stands alone and the final piece, 'Paradises Lost', is a new short novel original to the collection.
