One of the best fantasy short story collections I've ever read. Originally, when I realized this wasn't the next book in the series but a short story collection, I was disappointed. But the short stories gave such a great backdrop to what has gone on before and what is going to go on, that I feel like it simultaneously improved the previous books and made me anticipate the next in the series even more. I particularly liked On the High Marsh. The story really had a sense of place was the kind of story that separates really great authors from the rest--the kind where nothing much happens, but you're interest is still maintained throughout. Can't wait to continue the series, and to read the rest of Le Guin's work.
