Marion Zimmer Bradley
After a break during which I read some more modern novels, I went back to Marion Zimmer Bradley’s Darkover series, and read all the books that had been missing from my own collection, largely thanks to the folks at Half Price Books.
I’m not going to list every title, but I am going to mention that my favorite of the second batch of books was Stormqueen, though I’m certain this had to do with the weather outside the apartment matching the weather in the book.
Small things like that influence me far too greatly.
Still, it’s a great series, especially if you really want to immerse yourself in another world.
