  • "On behalf of his government, an earthling travels to an alien, backward world whose inhabitants are all ambisexual."
  • "Genly Ai is an emissary from the human galaxy to the planet Winter. He is sent to study the Gethenians, who can become male or female during each mating cycle."
  • "The Gethenians do not see one another as men or women. At each sexual cycle they may develop in either direction for the duration of that cycle. There is no division. One is respected and judged only as a human being. Terrans were having a difficult time with socio-interactions."@en
  • "The Terrans have sent a landing party to Gethan and what they find are a people outside their understanding, who do not see one another as men or women, strong or weak."
  • "Kidnapped by a thunderstorm and deposited in an everchanging, unstable world, two teenage girls become caught in a battle for supremacy between rival sorcerers."
  • "A human emissary sent to the world of Winter to bring it into a galactic civilization must find a way to bridge the gulf between his outlook and that of the natives, who can change gender at will."
  • ""Winter is an Earth-like planet with two major differences: conditions are semi artic even at the warmest time of the year, and the inhabitants are all of the same sex. Tucked away in a remote corner of the universe, they have no knowledge of space travel or of life beyond their own world. And when a strange envoy from space brings news of a vast coalition of planets which they are invited to join, he is met with fear, mistrust and disbelief..."--Back cover."
  • "Le Guin's Hainish series begins with the assumption that centuries ago humanoids from the planet Hain ventured through the solar system establishing colonies on various planets including Earth. For mysterious reasons these colonies lose all contact and knowledge of each other until the 21st century when an attempt is made to establish a galactic league. Individual stories in this loosely organized series explore the inherent communication difficulties in the mingling and clash of cultures that, over the centuries of separation, have developed widely disparate social and political structures as well as a range of biological differences."@en
