In October, we will publish

 

The Books of Earthsea: Complete Illustrated Edition

By Ursula Le Guin

Illustrated by Charles Vess

 

Fifty years ago, science fiction author Ursula K. Le Guin released A Wizard of Earthsea, the first installment of a well-lauded and influential fantasy series.

Sadly, Le Guin passed away in January, but later this year, one of her final projects will be released.

A collected edition of her Earthsea works featuring nearly 60 illustrations by fantasy artist Charles Vess.

Now for the first  time ever, all together in one volume, The Books of Earthsea, contains the early short stories, Le Guin's 'Earthsea Revisioned' Oxford lecture, and new Earthsea stories, never before printed.

 

With a new introduction by  Le Guin herself, this essential edition will also include over fifty  illustrations by renowned artist Charles Vess, specially commissioned and selected by Le Guin, to bring her refined vision of Earthsea and its  people to life in a totally new way.

 

It'll be a massive tome, weighing in at just over a thousand pages.

 

 

It will also contain 'Firelight’ – the last story of Ged, written by Ursula in the last months of her life. Poetic and poignant, there could be no moreperfect end to the Earthsea stories

 

Featuring: 

- 1,008 pages

- 56 illustrations (including seven lavishly coloured plate sections)

- maps of Earthsea

- stunningly beautiful endpapers

- Six novels

- 4 short stories

- An essay

 

There is nothing else like it.
