Haven't blogged in ages. On why I don't think I quite get this being-a-Northern-Irish-writer lark

Look on the bright side - there's a chance you get to help redefine what Northern Irish is all about!

@The Big Peat Thanks for that. I think The Tombs of Atuan is my favourite of Le Guin's books. (Though she has some awesome short stories, too.)
Have you read many of her non-Earthsea books? I keep thinking I need to get to them, but don't know how they stack up.

I've read a couple of her scifi novels, the ones based around the idea of humans being seeded across the galaxy by a race called the Hain. The only one I really remember is The Left Hand of Darkness, which is definitely worth a read. Even though I can't bring others to memory, I don't recall any major disappointments. I also really liked her short story collection The Compass Rose. 'The Author of the Acacia Seeds' is probably my favourite short story ever by anyone, though the collection as a whole is more literary with scifi/fantasy elements in a secondary role.
