'Le Guin's storytelling is sharp, magisterial, funny, thought-provoking and exciting, exhibiting all that science fiction can be' EMPIRE

MEDIA REVIEWS

THE REAL AND THE UNREAL as a pair are brilliant to read, provocative, and handsomely written - Tor.com

Being someone who grew up reading Ursula K. Le Guin's novels and short stories I was absolutely delighted by this collection. The book itself looks stunningly good and the stories themselves flow flawlessly together. I've had such great time rediscovering these fantastic tales and "Where on Earth" might just be the perfect collection for newcomers to her wondrous imaginary landscapes. As for other constant readers, it is a perfect reminder why we love her so much and to boot, it also comes with a few extra treats. - Upcoming 4 Me

[Le Guin had] the heart of a poet who knew all too well the difference between miracle and eureka, revelation and revolution - PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

Le Guin's storytelling is sharp, magisterial, funny, thought-provoking and exciting, exhibiting all that science fiction can be - EMPIRE

Her worlds have a magic sheen . . . She moulds them into dimensions we can only just sense. She is unique. She is legend - THE TIMES
