Review quote

Being someone who grew up reading Ursula K. Le Guin's novels and short stories I was absolutely delighted by this collection. The book itself looks stunningly good and the stories themselves flow flawlessly together. I've had such great time rediscovering these fantastic tales and "Where on Earth" might just be the perfect collection for newcomers to her wondrous imaginary landscapes. As for other constant readers, it is a perfect reminder why we love her so much and to boot, it also comes with a few extra treats. * Upcoming 4 Me * THE REAL AND THE UNREAL as a pair are brilliant to read, provocative, and handsomely written * Tor.com *
