Quick Review of Le Guin’s “The Wind’s Twelve Quarters”
Great book! There were a couple of stories here that were hard for me to get into (a couple of the early SF), but most were impressive. Loved the two origin stories of the Earthsea world – “The Word of Unbinding” and “The Rule of Names.” What was particularly interesting to me was reading some of her other SF pieces. What a writer! The dialogue was flawless, and my respect has grown for Ms. Le Guin many fold after this experience. She has earned another devotee and I’m eager to read her other larger works.
