Well worth the wait!
Reviewed in the United States on January 19, 2014
The Darkover anthologies were a welcome addition to Marion Zimmer Bradley's Darkover series. It was a way for relatively new authors to spread their wings, and Ms. Bradley was very supportive of fan efforts. The stories were good and offered unique insights to the world of Darkover, and Ms. Bradley had several short stories in the anthologies, which made them especially delightful to read. Alas, an incident with a fan occurred that caused Ms. Bradley to no longer be able to publish such anthologies.
It's been a long dry spell, but this book was well worth the wait. I especially like that it was based upon the music of Darkover. I really enjoyed the songs and stories behind the songs. As with the other Darkover anthologies, this one was all good. It is obvious from all her other writings that Ms. Bradley loved music, but until I read the preface, I never knew that Ms. Bradley had wanted be an opera singer.
If you like Darkover, read this book! You will not be sorry. (And there's another, "Stars of Darkover," coming out later this year.)
