In the span of her career, this prolific writer produced over 20 novels and more than 100 short stories. Her most popular works are the Earthsea series. This was a collection of five books and eight short stories.
In 2004, a mini-series on the Sci Fi channel, “Legend of Earthsea”, was created as an adaptation of the popular book series.
In 1969, she also wrote The Left Hand of Darkness. The book was set on the planet Gethen. And all the inhabitants were ambisexual. Ursula was best known for her adoption of mythical concepts, such as magic and afterlife, fused with science, to tackle everyday human problems. She was keen on exploring the human condition but in a creative and often non-antagonistic way.
