"Scattered here and there, small isolated groups of humanity lived in a state of semi-barbarity: Lost were the skills and science, the knowledge that had been Earth's in the golden age of the League of Worlds. Each time a colony of Earthmen began to stir the ashes of half-forgotten technology, the Shing, mindlying ravagers of Terra, would crush them out.
"Only one man dared stand against the Shing's hunger for Earth conquest, and that man - the alien with the amber eyes - would first have to prove to a lie-tormented humanity that he himself was not a tool of the enemy Shing . . . "; 5" - 6" Tall

4 Le Guin, Ursula K. Malafrena
New York Berkley Books 1980 0425046478 / 9780425046470 Mass Market Paperback Good 
Illustrated by Morril, Rowena (cover)

Spine a bit creased, a little edge wear, small paper lift on front cover, some scuffing to back cover. A little tanning but text is clear and unmarked. A nice copy.

Orsinia, a fictional Central European country, provides the setting for several of Le Guin's stories. 'Malafrena' is set in the 1820s when Orsinia was part of the Austrian Empire.
"Malafrena transports the reader to a Europe of the Imagination, Orsinia, where Itale Sorde is swept up in the revolutionary storms of his day, renouncing both his inheritance and the love of his life for his dream of revolution and the fiery woman who wants him for her own . . . "
"Malafrena is not a real place. Itale never dreamed of love, nor Piera of him. Estenskar did not live, only his poems. Only the dreams themselves are real, only their youth, only the wind called Freedom that swept through their lives like a storm unforgettable. "; 6" - 7" Tall

But Tenar was not born to live her days in peace, away from great events. A dying wizard and an abused child were the first to call her back to the path she had abandoned. For the end of the aventure beckoned and Tenar would be there along with the dragons, mages, and the young king himself to share in the unforgettable fate of the kingdom known as Earthsea."; 6" - 7" Tall

Winner of the Hugo and Nebula Awards for best science fiction novel of the year. Contains a new and never-before-published introductory essay by the author commissioned especially for this edition.
"From field notes of Ong Tot Oppong, Investigator, of the first Ekumenical landing party of Gethen/Winter Cycle 93 E.Y. 1448: Our entire pattern of socio-sexual interaction is non-existent here. The Gethenians do not see one another as men or women. This is almost impossible for our imaginations to accept. After all, what is the first question we ask about a newborn baby? Yetyou cannot think of a Gethenian as 'it.' They are not neuters. They are potentials; during each sexual cycle they may develop in either direction for the duration of that cycle. No physiological habit is established, and the mother of several childrem may be the father of several more. There is no division of humanity into strong and weak. One is respected and judged only as a human being. You cannot cast a Gethenian in the role of Man or Woman, while adopting towards 'him' a corresponding role dependent on your expectations of the interactions between persons of the same or opposite sex. It is an appalling experience for a Terran."; 12mo - over 6" - 7" tall
