It's a completely different world [In reply to] Can't Post

Most of the action takes place in the Archipelago, a nation of thousands of islands peopled by a red-brown race (Le Guin's people are usually nonwhite), some of whom have magical abilities. There's another nation nearby made up of four larger islands where the people are white. Then there's a race of people who live on rafts out in the sea year-round. And there are dragons.

She's written three new books since the original series, and there's a lot about death and the afterlife in them.

Never attribute to malice that which you can attribute to stupidity. - anon.
