I'm gratified that a lot of the stories in this collection come from earlier in Darkover's history. Like I mentioned in my review of Stormqueen!, the Ages of Chaos and the period between then and Landfall is my favorite period in Darkover's chronology, and there are very few books set there. I'm glad there are short stories in these collections that fill in the gaps.

Despite that, my favorite story in Domains of Darkover wasn't one of the earlier ones, it was "Death in Thendara," which features t

Marion Zimmer Bradley is famous for her Avalon books, but I'm a fan of her Darkover stories, set in an original world and a blend of science fiction and fantasy. This is one of a series of anthologies that basically are collection of "fan fiction" by other authors based on MZB's Darkover. I was impressed on reread of the first such book, The Keeper's Price. Enough I ranked it just below five stars, and was tempted to give it full marks. Not that I would argue it's deathless literature, but as a ...more

I have half a story in this (a collaboration with MZB), so I'm keeping to my policy of not rating things I've written. When you consider the fact that a new copy of the original mass market paperback is now selling for $29.99 on Amazon, however, I'm glad that the MZB Works Trust is reissuing these anthologies.
(‘Remember Everything; Forget Nothing’)
A Tale of the Hundred Kingdoms
A Darkover short story of revenge in the name of honor and of childhood friends too.
Was pretty good for one of these anthologies, no stories from MZB herself, and quite a bit heavier on brutal themes than in others, at least as I recall.
