  1. Hello,
    The two very last Earthsea tales written by Ursula Le Guin before her death are missing:

    “The daughter of Odren” (publ. 2017): apparently set between Dragonfly and The Other Wind (it’s told that 15 years are passed after the political turmoil period occurred before The Farthest Shore).
    “Firelight” (publ. 2018): apparently set near the end of Ged’s life.
