Description:
Terre Haute, Indiana: Science-Fiction Studies, 1975. Soft cover. Very Good. 8vo. Staple-bound wraps. Two consecutive volumes of the journal Science-Fiction Studies: #7 = Volume 2, Part 3, November 1975; #8 = Volume 3, Part 1, March 1976. Both volumes 100pp. Of particular interest to collectors of Ursula K. Le Guin. Volume #7, "The Science Fiction of Ursula K. Le Guin," contains nearly a dozen critical reflections on Le Guin's work, including contributions from Ian Watson, Darko Suvin, and Fredric Jameson. Also included is the first print appearance of Le Guin's brief but fiercely argued essay "American SF and the Other," in which she attacks the latent sexism and racism of much science fiction: "SF has either totally ignored women, or presented them as squeaking dolls subject to instant rape by monsters." Volume #8 contains Le Guin's "A Response to the Le Guin Issue," as well as a brief note in which she defends "American SF and the… Read more

Description:
Portland: Encore Publishing, 1977. Soft cover. Fine. Quarto; 30pp.; saddle-stapled in black-and-white wraps. Signed by Le Guin on the front cover, which features a pen-and-ink portrait of her by Henk Pander. Also signed by Vonda N. McIntyre at her contribution. A Portland-area arts periodical, distributed to attendees of The Oregon Symphony Orchestra, The Portland Opera, etc. This issue features a two-page spread of Le Guin's work: two very short stories ("Ghost Story" and "Courtroom Scene"), a poem ("Everest"), and a block-print illustration of a dragon. Science-fiction writer Vonda N. McIntyre has also contributed a two-page essay on Le Guin titled "Using the Language with Delight." While "Everest" was included in Le Guin's 1981 poetry collection Hard Words, we find no record of the two short stories ever having been collected in book form. A fine copy of this interesting piece for collectors of Le Guin.
