Le Guinn: Sci-fi Channel Ruined My Books

Ursula Le Guinn hoped for the best when she sold the rights to her Earthsea books for a mini-series. But the deal quickly went bad. “When I looked over the script, I realized the producers had no understanding of what the books are about and no interest in finding out. All they intended was to use the name Earthsea, and some of the scenes from the books, in a generic McMagic movie with a meaningless plot based on sex and violence.”
