The Earth colony of Landin has been stranded on Werel for ten years - and ten of Werel's years are over 600 terrestrial years, and the lonely and dwindling human settlement is beginning to feel the strain. Every winter - a season that lasts for 15 years - the Earthmen have neighbors: the humanoid hilfs, a nomadic people who only settle down for the cruel cold spell. The hilfs fear the Earthmen, whom they think of as witches and call the farborns. But hilfs and farborns have common enemies: the hordes of ravaging barbarians called gaals and eerie preying snow ghouls. Will they join forces or be annihilated?… (more)

Le Guin kraliçe diyorlar okurları bunu benim için Yerdeniz Serisi ile fantastik alanında kanıtlamıştı.Daha önce okuduğum Rüyanın Öte Yakası ve bu kitap ile aynı şeyi benim için bilimkurgu alanında da kanıtlamış oldu.

Sürgün Gezegeni'ni Hainli Döngüsü'nün 4. kitabı zannediyordum ama 2.kitap olduğunu bilseydim Rocannon'un Dünyası'nı okudum ilk ve böylece sırayla okurdum, neyse olan oldu en azından kitaplar arasında fazla bir bağın olmadığını teyit ettim.

Kitap kısa olduğu için içeriğinden bahsetmeyeceğim bunun dışında kitap ile ilgili söyleyebileceğim tek şey Bilimkurgu Edebiyatı'na başlanması için güzel bir tercih olacağıdır. ( )

This is an enjoyable yarn, not as distinguished as some of her other work, less challenging, more visceral, less analytical. I notice that often earlier works of favorite authors of mine show more stamina for description and exposition. I have a preference for plunging into the narrative and making the reader figure things out. I love Le Guin's faith in the power of love and community to overcome war and chaos. ( )

This is another one of her early novels,written in 1966. What happens when a colony is abandoned on a planet that already has people? When does integration finally start to happen? This is a story of that moment, a sad one of culture clash and war. It was a short read on an airplane that still leaves a taste of melancholy. (May 06, 2005) ( )

there's nothing particularly outstanding about this book, but it's a nice world to be in for a while. I did like the hopeful ending. ( )

In the last days of the last moonphase of Autumn a wind blew from the northern ranges through the dying forests of Askatevar, a cold wind that smelled of smoke and snow.
