Tales from Earthsea


The fifth book of the Earthsea Cycle is a collection of stories. The theme through all the stories is the effects of magic on the wizards, witches, and townspeople affected. It questions the use of power as well as the discrimination of women in their use of magic. Most of the stories are great. All have great prose, and all but one had good character development. The one that didn't just didn't delve much into the emotions of the characters involved. However, overall it's an excellent collection of tales from before, during, and after the events of the previous four books.
