City of Illusions by Ursula K. Le Guin [Hainish Cycle #3]


Classic 70's printing w/ cover art by Alex Ebel.

 Mass market paperback in very good condition.   Light read-crease to cover and some very faint water staining along rear spine.  Reads flawlessly.  

Scattered here and there, small isolated groups of humanity lived in a state of semi-barbarity. Lost were the skills and science, the knowledge that had been Earth's in the golden age of the League of Worlds.

Each time a colony of Earthmen began to stir the ashes of half-forgotten technology, the Shing, mindlying ravagers of Terra, would crush them like insects.
~ ~~ ~
Only one man dared to stand against the Shing's hunger for Earth conquest, and that man - the alien with the amber eyes - would first have to prove to a lie-tormented humanity that he himself was not a tool of the enemy!
