The Dispossessed (1974)

Ursula K. Le Guin (writer).

Part of the Hainish Cycle; the chronology is unclear. The first anarcho-syndicalist utopia, and as such it is appropriately ambiguous, something the subtitle makes explicit.

‣‣ “The Day Before the Revolution” (1974)

Ursula K. Le Guin (writer).

Read in 2019.

A day in the life of Odo herself. The last day; a day much like any other.

Despite being written so early, it reads like the last Earthsea stories.
