It may be that Marion was getting her feet under her as a collaborater (it is certainly not a flaw in Mercedes Lackey's abiliity as a writer) or it may be that her interest had shifted so far toward character as a central element that she backed off on her usual narrative drive.
Marion said she was thinking of our family when she wrote it, but I leave it to you as to whether that was a compliment or just an observation.

Marion Zimmer Bradley's Influence on the Sime~Gen Universe
MZB is one writer, and very Best Friend, Teacher, Initiator, and Influence who belongs to almost all of the above listed categories - possibly even Artist since her anatomical sketch of a tentacled arm appears in one of the S~G fanzines.
Funny thing - MZB was one of Don's authors at ACE in the very old days, and he bought books from her when she desperately needed a contract to pay the bills.

 SPACELIGHT: Bradley, Marion Zimmer - personal data   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
Bradley received her BA from Hardin Simmons University in Austin and did graduate work at University of California, Berkeley.
She began writing in her late teens and owed her longevity and success in the SF & Fantasy fields to three main things: 1) Her working relationship with editor Donald A. Wollheim of Ace and DAW; 2) Her mini-fandom of friends, family, and writers; and 3) Her continual output of readable work across four decades.
The theme was inspired by Bradley's reading of Henry Kuttner's "The Dark World" in Startling Stories, Summer 1946, which she read over and over again.

 Marion Zimmer Bradley Bibliography
MZB always insisted that the Darkover novels are not a series and can be read in any order, since none of the books assumes that you are familiar with any other of the books.
If you simply MUST have an order in which to read them, it is better to read them chronologically by publication date, rather than in chronology of Darkovan history; that way you will follow MZB's thought processes as her concept of Darkover grew and expanded.

I am an avid MZB fan and have read most of her novels, but the Darkover series is the closest to my heart and The Saga of the Renunciates stands above all.
MZB has created an amazing, detailed world in her books, but when writing about the Renunciates, or Free Amazons, the feminist tone gets entirely too shrill (and I'm female!).
