Revisiting Darkover

This anthology reminds me of everything I love about Darkover and the worlds of Marion Zimmer Bradley. She shaped and inspired so many young writers and this collection is tribute to the rich world and mythology she created. All the stories were a pleasure to read and left me wanting to immerse myself back into the world of Darkover. Great collection!
Interesting group of stories, a couple of which fit into the timeline. So far there have been relatively few that take place close to the original ship crash. Some unique characters. Some stories that seemed to end abruptly when, as a reader, I felt it was incomplete. Still the books are well edited.

Darkover Anthology

Somehow, the world Marion Zimmer Bradley lives on through these talented writers found by Deborah Ross.

Each story stands on its own as yet another facet of the planet Darkover and the secrets to be found.
Joyce Reynolds-Ward
A very nice collection of stories, with quite a range of variety throughout Darkover history.
