— Marion Zimmer Bradley
Marion Zimmer Bradley (1930-1999) was a prolific Speculative Fiction
writer who was often regarded as having a feminist bent to her work. MZB, as she was known to fans, was a co-founder and the namer of The Society for Creative Anachronism.
She was most famous for her Darkover
series and the novel The Mists of Avalon
. She was a contributor to the Thieves World
setting, with a sequence of stories featuring Lythande, Mage of the Blue Star. She also dove into gay and lesbian Pulp Fiction
early in her career.
Her former husband was convicted of a number of offenses involving children, and there is debate as to what extent she was aware of or complicit in these activities.
