Fictionwise Obtains E-Rights to Ursula K. Le Guin Works

Chatham, NJ, USA – August 16, 2001 – Fictionwise.com announced today that it has secured electronic rights to seven works by leading science fiction author Ursula K. Le Guin. None of Le Guin’s works have ever before been available in eBook format.

"Fictionwise is proud to offer Ursula K. Le Guin ebooks," said Scott Pendergrast, co-publisher of Fictionwise. "She is one of the most honored and respected science fiction and fantasy authors of all time."

Ursula K. Le Guin has published over a hundred short stories, two collections of essays, thirteen books for children, five volumes of poetry, two of translation, and seventeen novels. Among the honors her writing has received are a National Book Award, five Hugo Awards, five Nebula Awards, the Kafka Award, a Pushcart Prize, the Howard Vursell Award of the American Academy of Art and Letters, amongst others.

Of the works to be released at Fictionwise, five were nominated for Hugo or Nebula Awards, and one is a Nebula Winner. The first work, The Poacher, is available now. It is the story of a peasant boy who discovers a gigantic bramble hedge, and for the next two years he spends all his free time cutting a tunnel through its branches and dreaming of what he will find on the other side. When he finally breaks through, he finds an enchanted castle with all of its occupants asleep ... as if under a spell. He is especially careful not to disturb the princess, for he senses that the source of the dream he has entered is this sleeping beauty. For more information, go to: /eBooks/UrsulaKLeGuineBooks.htm

Production work has begun on converting the six other works into popular eBook formats, including Palm (for Palm Pilot, Visor, and Win CE), Acrobat, Rocket/Reb 1100, Microsoft Reader (Pocket PC and PCs), and Franklin eBookMan.

On Monday, August 20th, Fictionwise will release two more Le Guin ebooks: "The New Atlantis" (Locus Poll Award Winner, Hugo Award Nominee, Nebula Award® Nominee) and "The Day Before the Revolution" (Nebula Award® Winner, Locus Poll Award Winner, Hugo Award Nominee).
