Short story – “The Barrow” by Ursula K. Le Guin

“The Barrow” by Ursula K. Le Guin was first published in The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction, October 1976. I read it in the collection The Legend Book of Science Fiction, edited by Gardner Dozois and published in 1991.

I found this a little confusing to read. It was unclear who was speaking at times and there seemed to be too many characters for such a short short story. But it came together in the end. It is another one of those stories that confuses at the beginning, then makes sense at the end, so you have to go back and read the beginning again to fill in the gaps in your understanding. At least, that is how it was for me.
