Tales From Earthsea and The Other Wind by Ursula K. Le Guin

This is an omnibus from the SFBC. The first book has four stories that range around and in existing stories, but the fifth, "Dragonfly," is a link to the second book. After the stories, there's a long section explaining Earthsea.

The Other Wind has many people meeting from many places with many abilities and seems to actually finish off Earthsea stories.

I thought both were fairly stodgy compared to the original books, but did decide to finish them. Most of the stories are less moving and more stagnant. I was thinking I'd go back and read the original books, but by the end of The Other Wind I'd had enough tips and remembered the older books.
