The Rule of Names Ursula K. Le Guin Mr Underhill came out from under his hill, smiling and breathing hard. Each breath shot out of his nostrils as a double puff of steam, snow-white in the morning sunshine. Mr Underhill looked up at the bright December sky and smiled wider than ever, showing snow-white teeth. Then he went down to the village....

The Eye of the Heron Ursula K. Le Guin 1 In the sunlight in the center of a ring of trees Lev sat cross-legged, his head bent above his hands. A small creature crouched in the warm, shallow cup of his palms. He was not holding it it had decided or consented to be there. It looked like a little toad with wings. The wings, folded into a peak above its back, were dun-colored with shadowy streaks, and its body was shadow-colored. Three gold eyes like large pinheads adorned its head, one on each side ...

Preface By calling this book The Compass Rose I hoped to suggest that some pattern or coherence may be perceived in it, while indicating that the stories it contains tend to go off each in its own direction. They take place all over the map, including the margins. It is not even clear to me what the map is a map of. A mind, no doubt presumably the authors. But I expect there is more to it than that. Ones mind is never simply ones own, even at birth, and ever less so as one lives, learns, loses, ...

Direction of the Road Ursula K. Le Guin They did not use to be so demanding. They never hurried us into anything more than a gallop, and that was rare most of the time it was just a jigjog foot-pace. And when one of them was on his own feet, it was a real pleasure to approach him. There was time to accomplish the entire act with style. There hed be, working his legs and arms the way they do, usually looking at the road, but often aside at the fields, or straight at me: and Id approach him ...

Ursula K. Le Guin THE WAVE IN THE MIND Talks and Essays on the Writer, the Reader, and the Imagination In loving memory of Virginia Kidd As for the mot juste, you are quite wrong. Style is a very simple matter: it is all rhythm. Once you get that, you cant use the wrong words. But on the other hand here am I sitting after half the morning, crammed with ideas, and visions, and so on, and cant dislodge them, for lack of the right rhythm. Now this is very profound, what rhythm is, and goes far ...

They were here, in Centralville, twenty-seven lightyears from Earth by NAFAL and four hours from Smith Camp by hopper, the second batch of breeding females for the New Tahiti Colony, all sound and clean, 212 head of prime human stock. ...

Nine Lives URSULA K. LE GUIN She was alive inside, but dead outside, her face a black and dun net of wrinkles, tumors, cracks. She was bald and blind. The tremors that crossed Libras face were mere quiverings of corruption: underneath, in the black corridors, the halls beneath the skin, there were crepitations in darkness, ferments, chemical nightmares that went on for centuries. Oh the damned flatulent planet, Pugh murmured as the dome shook and a boil burst a kilometer to the southwest, ...

Every step, every act that was now so immensely difficult and complicated and awkward could become easy and natural so easily and naturally. Just lift the blindfold, just for a moment, just from one eye, just take one peek. I did not lift the blindfold, but it did slip several times, and my eyes would dazzle with all the ...
