Return with Marion Zimmer Bradley and the Friends of Darkover to the planet of the Bloody Sun, the world of Darkover, there powerful families gifted with rare mental powers of 'laran' rule the land, where Terran technology is seen as the greatest evil, and survival often depends on a steady sword and quickness of wits. Here dwell the Free Amazons, who have set themselves apart from their male-ruled world, owing loyalty only to each other, living their lives as free citizens, equal to any man or woman, soldier or lord. the eighteen tales in the collection, including two by Marion Zimmer Bradley herself, tell the story of these Free Amazons, and are certain to enchant anyone who has fallen under the spell of the amazon heroines of Thendara House and City of Sorcery.

Of course, if you've read Darkover fiction before and didn't care for the stories of Free Amazons, you may want to give this one a pass, but I shouldn't need to tell you that; the title should be all the hint you need.
The quality is uneven, of course, and there were some stories I didn't particularly care for (which kept this from being a five-star review). My two favorites were "Knives" and "A Different Kind of Courage," but your mileage may vary, as always.
There's something for almost everyone here, unless you WANT half-dressed warrior women and damsels in distress. :)
