I enjoyed this book tremendously. It is an anthology written mostly by fans who entered Marion Zimmer Bradley's Darkover contests. They "fill in the gaps" of many areas of Darkover history. There are even three stories written by MZB herself. So if you want to return to Renunciates, matrixes, Comyn intrigue & even stories about some of the non-humans, you will probably really enjoy this small volume. I sure did!
