The Darkover books are a cult phenomenon in science fiction with their own convention and several books of short stories written by fans and edited by the books' author, known affectionately as MZB. Even Bradley's illness and subsequent death in 1999 did not stop the Darkover books as new novels were written with an uncredited Adrienne Martine-Barnes and more recently with Deborah J. Ross credited on the cover as co-writer. From official release/information:
Book Description: The long-awaited continuation to the popular science fiction saga is the story of Darkover's ruling class, the comyn, and their struggles to reclaim their realm from the devastating effects of the Terran Federation.
