Return to Avalon Author:Jennifer Roberson (Editor) Retellings of several Arthurian tales follow such plots as Merlin's defeat of Vortigern and Guinevere's sacrifice to a grail-seeking knight, and include the works of such writers as Melanie Rawn, Judith Tarr, and Katherine Kerr.
An impressive collection of stories, although not all are related to Avalon or even Arthurian legend/lore.
But it seems as if, even with the title of this anthology, that we are not be "returned" to Avalon seeing as this is more of a tribute to Marion Zimmer Bradley and her portrayal of the Arthurian legend and the pagan goddess religion of early Britain.
Throughout this anthology, there are chapters dedicated to Marion herself, each titled "Appreciation."
It was a delight reading these, as it gave the reader a glimpse into the life of fantasy writers like Charles de Lint and Diana Paxson.
