    • New edition revised by Ursula K. Le Guin, with a new preface, dated May 1989. According to the preface The changes to the text are rare, mostly missions 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.
