Book Review of Return to Avalon

Return to Avalon
peculiarbookworm avatar reviewed on + 23 more book reviews


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.

All in all, a great read and highly recommended.
