Malafrena by Ursula K. Le Guin. Berkley, 1980. 343 pages. New scan. Good quality clearscan pdf with bookmarked chapters, accurate pagination, etc. As far as I know this novel has never appeared on the torrent sites or other ebook sources, and last time I checked its out of print. Please understand: this is is HISTORICAL FICTION. Its not science fiction or fantasy. I think the publisher doomed the book because they couldnt decide how to market it, so the cover looks like it might a sort of historical fantasy. Its not. But like everything by Le Guin, its worth reading. Planning also to scan Orsinian Tales (which has the same setting) in the near future. publisher description: First paperback publication of Le Guins historical novel, set in the fictional country of her Orsinian Tales. Malafrena tells the story of Itale Sorde, the son of the owner of an estate on a lake called Malafrena in a valley of the same name. Itale leaves the estate, against his fathers will, to seek adventure. He becomes engaged in nationalistic and revolutionary politics in the Austrian Empire of the early 1800s. Perhaps an homage to 19th century Russian literature, the story shares themes with the authors previous sf novel, The Dispossessed.
