Author: Ursula K. Le Guin
Date: 1979-04-00
Type: NONFICTION
Language: English
Note:
  • A collection of Le Guin essays, edited by Susan Wood.
  • Susan Wood wrote an introduction to this book, which is credited to her. There are also section introductions which are uncredited but are presumably by her, per title page, and have been recorded thus.
  • A revised edition of this work was first published in 1989 by The Women's Press. According to the preface to the revised edition: The changes to the text are rare, mostly omissions of a word or sentence or corrections of my own or a typesetter's errors. The principal revision involves the so-called 'generic pronoun' he. It has been changed, following context, euphony or whim, to they, she, one, I, you or we. In addition "Is Gender Necessary? Redux" gives the original text of "Is Gender Necessary" side-by-side with remarks and annotations and self-recriminations from later years. . . . Elsewhere in preparing the text for this edition I have added notes at the foot of the page, commenting, enlarging, updating, grumbling, or clarifying.
  • The original edition included a "Bibliographic Checklist" by Jeff Levin. The original UK revised edition had no checklist. The USA editions of the revised edition include a new "Bibliographic Checklist" by L. W. Currey.
  • Review of this book in Analog incorrectly spells the author's name as "Ursula K. LeGuin".
