DragonDreamsJen’s #CBR4 Review #58 Rediscovery by Marion Zimmer Bradley and Mercedes Lackey

When this book was first published in 1993, I let out a squeal of glee.  Two of my favourite authors had teamed up to fill in a gap in the Darkover timeline.  Rediscovery is an insightful and compelling story of how Darkover came to be “rediscovered” by the Terran Empire some 2000 years after one of the Lost Colony ships crashed on the planet of the red sun.

Mercedes Lackey, or Misty as Marion often called in in anthologies, returns to write this tale with the mentor who discovered her early work through the Swords and Sorceress anthologies that she edited through the 80s.  Lackey went on to take those early short stories and write more about her world Valdemar, becoming a well-respected and prolific writer in her own right.  Marion often mentioned how proud she was of Mercedes’ success.
