    Six of these tales are set in the author's signature world of the Ekumen, a world made familiar in her award-winning novel The Left Hand of Darkness. The title story was hailed by Publisher's Weekly as "remarkable...a standout." Paradises Lost is a mesmerizing novella of space exploration and the pursuit of happiness. These stories explore complex social interactions, troublesome issues of gender and sex, and the meaning of transformation, religion, and history.

    Overall

    These short stories do just what I would expect from science fiction, they take me elsewhere and allow me think differently. The readers are the same crew that did the Ender series by Orson Card, with LeGuin herself contributing her forward and one of the stories. Having such talented readers with interesting stories combines for a great listen.
