The Isolate Tower
The Isolate Tower: An Earthsea Compendium
: A glossary of people, places & objects in Earthsea.

If you can’t remember who Elassen is or anything about Enwas, you will find them and many other people, places, and things here in alphabetical order, briefly and clearly located and described.

I had nothing to do with the making of this compendium and only just discovered it exists, but I certainly plan to use it from now on. So far I have not found any errors in it, and the authors keep to the fictofacts in the texts, avoiding interpretation, for which I am very grateful. I only wish it had existed before I wrote the books. It would have saved me from committing many small errors and discrepancies and a couple of really big ones.
