Ursula Le Guin 1929 – 2018

We were sad to hear of the death of Ursula Le Guin.

The Wizard of Earthsea was published in 1968 in the USA. Ursula Le Guin originally planned it as a stand alone novel, but went on to write The Tombs of Atuan and The Farthest Shore, creating a trilogy that has caught the imagination of readers of all ages ever since.

The renowned British critic, Naomi Lewis, said of The Wizard of Earthsea, “[It is not] the easiest book for casual browsing, but readers who take the step will find themselves in one of the most important works of fantasy of our time.”
