Brief Summary:




The BookEdit

What makes this novel uniqueEdit

  • While in the process of writing The Heritage of Hastur Marion Zimmer Bradley chose to sacrifice consistency with The Sword of Aldones, and "retained only the bare outlines of the story".[1]  Indeed, The Sword of Aldones became the only Darkover novel to be not merely re-written, but replaced when Sharra's Exile was published in 1981, so badly had the much earlier Aldones become out of sync.
  • In her 1980 article A Darkover Retrospective Marion Zimmer Bradley refers to The Heritage of Hastur as "my favorite of my own books."[2]
