The Matter of Seggri


The novelette is set in the far future of the Hainish universe, lke most of Le Guin's SF.

Spoiler Alert

The story includes vignettes about the very unusual lives on a planet where men and women live utterly apart, (with men in castles and women in villages), except for sex.

A VERY powerful story.

My rating system: I begin with one star being equivalent to a rating of "C -". Progressing upwards, I add ½ star for each step, up to the maximum 5 stars, which is equivalent to a rating of "A"+. I reserve ½ star for BOMBS, there being no option of zero or negative stars.
