Among her best known works are fantasy books of Earthsea, an archipelago-like world where the reader can follow the wizard Geds external and internal travel in a universe where magic root and origin of things is to know the true name. The series was long a trilogy, but has since expanded to several books. Much of her science fiction is a loosely coherent series of short stories and novels set in the universe Hains, also called Ekumen. They should not be viewed as a series in the strict sense, since each book is independent. Much attention also outside the sci-fi circles, she has received for his novel Shevek (The Dispossessed) depicting an anarchist civilization on a barren planet and Darkness left hand (The Left Hand of Darkness) that describes the planet Winter in which human beings during restricted periods alternately enters either male or female sex and the only potential sexual beings.

Koyot-woman beings and other animals are moving in a mytvärld influenced by Indian culture. This mytvärld is also a large part of Always coming home (not translated into Swedish), but this book takes place in a relatively low-tech future when our civilization is long gone.
