The Wind's Twelve Quarters and The Compass Rose Summary

The Wind's Twelve Quarters and The Compass Rose by Ursula K. Le Guin

Grand Master Ursula K. LeGuin has been recognised for almost fifty years as one of the most important writers in the SF field - and is likewise feted beyond the confines of the genre. The Wind's Twelve Quarters was her first collection and it brings together some of finest short fiction, including the Hugo Award-winning 'The Ones Who Walk Away from Omelas', the Nebula Award-winning 'The Day Before the Revolution', and the Hugo-nominated 'Winter's King', which gave readers their first glimpse of the world later made famous in her Hugo- and Nebula-winning masterpiece The Left Hand of Darkness.

The Wind's Twelve Quarters and The Compass Rose Reviews

One of the most accomplished of contemporary science fiction writers - The New York Times Book Review

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

A wonderfully mordant analyst of human weakness. The gems in this impressive collection have the same power to disconcert as her best novels.

On the strength of The Wind's Twelve Quarters, I would not hesitate to say that the short story is the appropriate medium for her, and one in which few contemporary writers . . . can equal her' - New Scientist
