Read in July, 2009

LeGuin revisits some of the Hainish themes, and creates several new compelling worlds. One story even got my 8 year old son's attention at dinner the other day (it involves a space ship you see.)

As you would expect from LeGuin, these are engaging stories that make you think and play with our perceptions of reality. Occasionally she veers too far into anthropology-geek, but we love her anyway. I don't think there is anyone I'd rather read right now.
