    Well I appear to be in the deep end of the pool now!  I've been granted admin and bureaucrat privs.  That should allow me to set up a forum.  What else I'm still learning!

    I am a long time (40+) SF & fantasy reader.  Perhaps my favorite series of books (other than Tolkien) are those concerned with Darkover.  I read my first Darkover books in the old Ace Double format, back when 45,000 to 60,000 words were considered a novel.  I fell in love with them then and that love affair has not dimmed across all this time many, many re-readings, and multiple co-authors and inheritor authors.

    That would be who I am and somewhat of why I am here.  With the recent releases of new Darkover books in the past few years and talk of a TV series to boot, back I went to re-read my favorite stories.  That led to reading the storie…
