This book is an anthology of her short stories, a retrospective that shows the development of her technique. I absolutely, absolutely love The Ones Who Walk Away from Omelas, and I kid you not if I say that I must have read it over a hundred times without it getting old.

I first came across Le Guin’s work while browsing in a book sale (there are pitifully few book stores in the city where I live), and since then she has become one of my top four favorite authors of speculative fiction, among J. R. R. Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, and Guy Gavriel Kay.
