Female Fantasy Authors, November 2012
The first book anyone thinks of upon hearing the name Marion Zimmer Bradley is her authoritative retelling of the Camelot legend, The MIsts of Avalon. While it is a colossal achievement, and has several sequels, it is by no means the limit of her capabilities as an author. Her expansive Darkover Series delights millions of fans, and there was a time when she encouraged fan fiction to be submitted for possible publication in Darkover Anthologies. Those readers who demand non-cliché female characters will be more than pleased with those found in Bradley's work -- finding women of strength and intelligence who stalk the forefront of the stage rather than lingering in the background. Her library of work is extensive, giving readers much to sink their teeth into.
