Book View Café welcomes the Marion Zimmer Bradley Literary Works Trust as its latest member by
(Book View Cafe 15 November 2013 / ) - Cedar Crest, NM November 6, 2013...Book View Café Publishing Cooperative (BVC), the professional author-run publisher, announces the addition of the Marion Zimmer Bradley Literary Works Trust to its membership.

BVC will be bringing out ebook versions of selected works from her backlist, starting with The Complete Lythande, now available from BVC and major online booksellers.
