During a quick re-read of these stories, I soon realised that although I have read them before, it is so long ago that I only had vague feelings of déjà vu.

Nine good stories, my favourites being "Semley's Necklace", "April in Paris", "Darkness Box" and "Winter's King". ( )

Le Guin's collections of short stories tend to leave me a bit confused. Some contain thought experiments and ideas that I find enthralling and will not leave me. Others are so bizarre that I really do not understand them at all. They almost seem self indulgently obscure, which is inconsistent with the sharp insightfulness and concepts elsewhere. As I said, confusing. ( )
