Worlds of Exile and Illusion Publisher's summary

Three remarkable journeys into the stars

Worlds of Exile and Illusion includes Rocannon's World, Planet of Exile, and City of Illusions.

These three spacefaring adventures mark the beginning of grand master Ursula K. Le Guin’s remarkable career. Set in the same universe as Le Guin’s groundbreaking classics The Left Hand of Darkness and The Dispossessed, these first three books of the celebrated Hainish series follow travelers of many worlds and civilizations in the depths of space.

The novels collected here are the first three ever published by Le Guin, a frequent winner of the Hugo and Nebula Awards and one of the greatest science fiction and fantasy writers of all time.

“What an immense imagination, what a strong and trenchant mind.” —Margaret Atwood
