She has won the Hugo Award, Nebula Award, Locus Award, and World Fantasy Award, each more than once. In 2014, she was awarded the National Book Foundation Medal for Distinguished Contribution to American Letters. Her novel 'The Left Hand of Darkness', won the Hugo and Nebula awards in 1970. Her subsequent novel, 'The Dispossessed' made her the first person to win both the Hugo and Nebula Awards for Best Novel twice for the same two books. These two novels and 'The Telling', are novels within Le Guin's Hainish Cycle, which employs a future galactic civilization loosely connected by an organizational body known as the Ekumen to consider the consequences of contact between different worlds and cultures. Unlike those in much mainstream science fiction, Hainish Cycle civilization does not possess reliable human faster-than-light travel, but does have technology for instantaneous communication.
