Her best known works include The Dispossessed (which won the Hugo, Nebula, and Locus Awards), the Earthsea fantasy series, and The Left Hand of Darkness. She was repeatedly honored for excellence in forms ranging from essays and short fiction to full-length novels, and was a finalist for the 1997 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction.
