Overview

Over the course of several decades, Marion Zimmer Bradley developed a group she called "MZB's Writers." Often the initial story they sold to her was their first professional sale. She nurtured, encouraged-and nagged-them to produce more. Many of them, much to her delight, went on to successful careers of their own, becoming the "big names" of the next generation.

As part of the Fantasy Worlds Festival in 1998, the last convention Marion organized, Marion and Rachel E. Holmen edited MARION ZIMMER BRADLEY'S FANTASY WORLDS, an anthology of stories by "MZB's Writers." It contains stories by Robin Wayne Bailey, Jessie D. Eaker, India Edghill, Rosemary Edghill, Dorothy J. Heydt, Heather Rose Jones, Cynthia McQuillin, Syne Mitchell, Diana L. Paxson, Steven Piziks, Raul S. Reyes, Deborah J. Ross, Dave Smeds, Michael Spence, Laura J. Underwood, Cynthia L. Ward, Elisabeth Waters, Lawrence Watt-Evans, and Paul Edwin Zimmer.

The original edition was a signed hardcover, limited to 300 copies. The Marion Zimmer Bradley Literary Works Trust is happy to make it more widely available now.

Meet the Author

Marion Zimmer was born in Albany, New York, on June 3, 1930, and married Robert Alden Bradley in 1949. Mrs. Bradley received her B.A. in 1964 from Hardin Simmons University in Abilene, Texas, then did graduate work at the University of California, Berkeley, from 1965-67.
She was a science fiction/fantasy fan from her middle teens and made her first professional sale to Vortex Science Fiction in 1952. She wrote everything from science fiction to Gothics, but is probably best known for her Darkover novels. In addition to her novels, Mrs. Bradley edited many magazines, amateur and professional, including Marion Zimmer Bradley's FANTASY Magazine, which she started in 1988. She also edited an annual anthology called SWORD AND SORCERESS for DAW Books.
Over the years she turned more to fantasy. She wrote a novel of the women in the Arthurian legends—Morgan Le Fay, the Lady of the Lake, and others—entitled THE MISTS OF AVALON, which made the New York Times bestseller list both in hardcover and trade paperback, and she also wrote THE FIREBRAND, a novel about the women of the Trojan War.
She died in Berkeley, California on September 25, 1999, four days after suffering a major heart attack. For more information, see her website: www.mzbworks.com.
