5.0 out of 5 stars Range of styles from a writer ahead of her time 24 Aug 2003
By purplepadma VINE VOICE
This anthology spans the many decades and styles of Marion Zimmer Bradley's writing career. The contents may be something of a surprise to some readers, as fantasy-oriented work is in the minority; what you will find here, however, is some excellent SF. I am always surprised that MZB is not considered a 'feminist' writer, as her work deals with themes of gender on other planets as much as does, say, Le Guin's, and many of the stories here deal with the experience of *women* in space, and yet hail from a period where the predominent mood in SF was the hard, 'boys' own adventure' type.
There is some truly interesting and perhaps startling stuff here - 'The Engine' in particular is one of the most unsettling SF stories I have read (and that's saying a lot!). There is also some more familiar territory covered, such as the Darkovan story of how Camilla joined the Free Amazons.

4.0 out of 5 stars Short Stories at there best 2 Mar 2002
By A Customer
For stressful times when you need a good read but have only 5-10 minutes this is ideal. There are 15 short stories in all in this book. As well as the darkover location you will also find earth. I wont spoil it by giving to much away however one of my favourites involves self-sacrifice.
