Earthsea is based on the first three books in the Earthsea Cycle. It tells the stories of Ged and Tenar, inhabitants of a vast archipelago where magic is part of life. Young wizard Ged releases a terrible shadow into the world; meanwhile, Tenar is taken from her home and family to become priestess and guardian of the Tombs of Atuan. The Left Hand of Darkness is set on Gethen, a world in the grip of an Ice Age whose people are both male and female, and neither. Genly Ai has been sent from Earth on the biggest mission of his life: to persuade the people of Gethen to join the Ekumen, a union of planets. But his task is fraught with danger. Unabridged. With a bonus interview Ursula le Guin interview disc.
