Ursula K Le Guin


The Left Hand of Darkness
Year 1969
Publisher Panther  (Granada)
ISBN 0441478123



Genly Ai is an emissary from the human galaxy to Winter, a lost, stray world. His mission is to bring the planet back into the fold of an evolving galactic civilization, but to do so he must bridge the gulf between his own culture and prejudices and those that he encounters. On a planet where people are of no gender--or both--this is a broad gulf indeed.



Winner of the Hugo and Nebula Awards

'Ursula K Le Guin's world of winter is real: from the first page you find yourself totally immersed in it, and at the last page you come out of it with a start and a shiver.  Anybody who can write a novel like this has my respect and admiration.'
Damon Knight

Titan's Puzzles
Although the Huygens probe has now pierced the murky skies of Titan and landed on its surface, much of the moon remains for the Cassini spacecraft to explore. Titan continues to present exciting puzzles. This view of Titan uncovers new territory not previously seen at this resolution by Cassini's cameras. The view is a composite of four nearly identical wide-angle camera images.
