Beschreibung

Outer Space, Inner Lands includes many of the best known Ursula K. Le Guin nonrealistic stories (such as "The Ones Who Walk Away from Omelas," "Semley' s Necklace," and "She Unnames Them") which have shaped the way many listeners see the world. She gives voice to the voiceless, hope to the outsider, and speaks truth to power - all the time maintaining her independence and sense of humor.
Companion volume Where on Earth explores Le Guin's satirical, risky, political and experimental earthbound stories. Both volumes include new introductions by the author.

Many beloved stories to listen to

Ursula K. Le Guin does some of the greatest worldbuilding in fantasy and science-fiction. This is especially apparent in her short stories, where a few descriptions are enough to establish the general setting; the rest is shown rather than told through the characters' musings and (inter)actions.

And oh, what characters! From children growing up on alien planets, to the way societies might change after contact with other worlds, to hapless wizards who aren't all that great at magic, to sisters who must deal with being abducted into another culture - these stories are thoughful and thought-inspiring, funny or lyrical at times and almost casually cruel at others. Just like life, I suppose.

Tandy Cronyn does a great job bringing all the characters to life, with a calm way of narrating that fits the largely introspective stories beautifully. A wonderful match of author and performer.
