Synopses & Reviews

From Powells.com:

Growing up, a book or two were always among the gifts at holidays. The one I still reread every few years is The Mists of Avalon. Both academic and popular culture have had their chance with the legend of King Arthur. However, this novel is what I still think of first. My first copy of Mists of Avalon was a Christmas present from my brother when I was thirteen It was one of the first books that I read that was not considered young adult fiction. I empathized with Morgaine and her experiences, as well as the strength she developed. It was one of the points where I wanted more from the characters I read about — no longer black or white, good or evil, but multidimensional, flawed and more relatable. This was the introduction to the science fiction genre where I still browse now. Recommended by Traci

Publisher Comments:

Here is the magical legend of King Arthur, vividly retold through the eyes and lives of the women who wielded power from behind the throne. A spellbinding novel, an extraordinary literary achievement, The Mists of Avalon will stay with you for a long time to come....

About the Author

Marion Zimmer Bradley began her distinguished book publishing career in 1961 with her first novel, The Door Through Space. The following year she wrote the first book in her hugely popular Darkover series, Sword of Aldones, which soon became a Hugo Award nominee. Bradley's novel The Forbidden Tower was also nominated for a Hugo, and The Heritage of Hastur was nominated for an esteemed Nebula Award.

The Mists of Avalon was the single most successful novel of Bradley's career. It won the 1984 Locus Award for Best Fantasy Novel and has been among the top five trade paperback books on Locus's bestseller list for years.

Ms. Bradley died in 1999.
