Realms of Darkover

Authored by Deborah J. Ross

Marion Zimmer Bradley’s beloved world of Darkover encompasses many realms, from glacier-shrouded mountains to arid wastelands, from ancient kingdoms to space-faring empires. Now this all-new anthology welcomes old friends and new fans to explore these landscapes of time and place, history and imagination. Darkover’s psychic gifts known as laran bestow the ability to reach across the stars, meld with another’s mind, and experience past and possible futures. These talents are not limited to Darkover’s human inhabitants, for the planet is also home to nonhuman races, many with powerful mental abilities of their own. In these stories, a swordsman on the track of an assassin forges a telepathic bond with a great owl…a shapeshifter from Earth discovers kinship with a Darkovan catman…a boy from the desert Dry Towns displays a deadly form of weather-control…rescuers make their way across blizzard-cloaked mountains, afoot or on skis…and an intrepid young woman challenges the male establishment in her dream of becoming a judge.
