The Rough Guide to Space Opera: Ursula K. Le Guin - Blue Tyson

Ursula K. Le Guin is a grand master of science fiction, noted for the Wizard of Earthsea children's fantasy series and the gender fluid planet diplomacy novel The Left Hand of Darkness, among others. Some of her Hainish cycle work is of interest, such as Rocannon's World. She has written a large number of short stories.

Winter's King is a precursor story to The Left Hand of Darkness and is about the effects on society when you can travel on starships at close to the speed of light.
