'Le Guin's storytelling is sharp, magisterial, funny, thought-provoking and exciting, exhibiting all that science fiction can be' EMPIRE The Unreal and the Real is a two-volume collection of stories, selected by Ursula Le Guin herself, and spans the spectrum of fiction from realism through magical realism, satire, science fiction, surrealism and fantasy. Volume One, WHERE ON EARTH, focuses on Le Guin's interest in realism and magical realism and includes 18 of her satirical, political and experimental earthbound stories. Highlights include WORLD FANTASY and HUGO AWARD-winner 'Buffalo Gals, Won't You Come Out Tonight', the rarely reprinted satirical short, 'The Lost Children', JUPITER AWARD-winner, 'The Diary of the Rose' and the title story of her PULITZER PRIZE finalist collection 'Unlocking the Air'.

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 *
