Dispatches from Anarres: Tales in Tribute to Ursula K. Le Guin

by Susan DeFreitas Editor

In this new collection of short stories, some of Portland's most vital voices have come together to pay tribute to the lasting impression Ursula K. Le Guin's work has left on that most enigmatic of human properties: imagination. In stories that range from fantasy, to science fiction, to realism, and the many spaces in between, the writers collected here pick up Le Guin's torch where she left it and carry it forward. With thirty stories from nearly as many authors, this collection includes writing from Fonda Lee, Molly Gloss, Lidia Yuknavitch, Rene Denfeld, David D. Levine, Rachael K. Jones, Curtis C. Chen, Kesha Ajose-Fisher, Tina Connolly, Michelle Ruiz Keil, Stevan Allred, Leni Zumas, and more.
