Format: Mass Market Paperback
Take your favorite Darkover novel, compress it into a few pages but leave all the emotional impact in place -- that's "The Keeper's Price." I notice that MZB and Lisa Waters kept coming back to Hilary Castamir's charcter, and I wish there had been a novel about her. :)
Leaving aside the brilliance of the title masterpiece, the rest of the collection is strong and well-organized. Even the stories I didn't like as much at first ("A Simple Dream" comes to mind, as does "Ambassador to Corresanti") have grown on me. I've read and re-read this collection probably twenty times in the past year. I still want to read it over again. These are wonderful stories!
I also appreciated how well-organized this collection and _Sword of Chaos_ were, and wish the anthologies had continued to print stories in approximate chronological order.
Oh well.

Marion Zimmer Bradley has kept our Science Fiction Fantasy lover's lifes alive. Without her quick, imaginative, supple mind we would be lost in vampires and demonology or horror stories, I'm sure. She reached beyond worlds, our dreams, our imaginations, and pulled all the quixotic, mysterious, romantic, horrible and outrageous thoughts we think to hide.
Her selections of new writers is a collection of her thoughts about what our dreams and longings are, put in words, and we welcome the new group of MZK's novelists!

HASH(0xa53bf930) out of 5 stars Darkover, in other voices Sept. 5 2013
By Elizabeth R Crew - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
While I know that this was edited by MZB, and she loved the stories in it, I just don't care for stories written by others. While I did enjoy all the short stories in one of my favorite worlds, sometimes the tone just wasn't right. But that's just my opinion. Others would say it was fabulous.

I loved that she gave many new authors a first story sell. And I love that MZB fully supported women writing science fiction in a mainly male dominated genre. I fully support her ambitions, even though I'm not as big a fan of the work as she was.
HASH(0xa53bfc0c) out of 5 stars Darkover Nuances Nov. 16 2012
By Animal Lover - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Normally I don't read short stories or anthologies, but I make an exception for anything to do with Darkover. Darkover is the science fiction universe that Marion Zimmer Bradley created. I love the series. The anthologies, of which The Keeper's Price is just one, are short stories using Darkover as the setting. While all the stories are good, some are better than others. I like the stories because they give me insight into one or more aspects of Darkover. The only reason I gave the book 4 stars instead of 5 stars was because not all the stories were by Marion Zimmer Bradley. The Keeper's Price however contains more of her stories than some of her other Darkover anthologies.

HASH(0xa53bfb04) out of 5 stars I loved this book! Dec 24 2013
By Carolyn Wolfe - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I have been a Darkover fan and fan of Marion Zimmer Bradley and company for many, many, years. The world of Dark Over is an amazingly complicated and layered society full of magic, passion and politics. It is a wonderful place to escape to. This anthology is an exquisite look into the many layers that make Darkover the wondrous world that it is! It also answers many questions about the "Keepers" and what they do for Darkover, and what the personal price is! It is a wonderful read!
HASH(0xa53bfcf0) out of 5 stars which I enjoyed and still have the paperbacks -- which I prefer ... April 5 2015
By Faustino Amaral - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is actually an anthology, to a series that was written a long time ago, which I enjoyed and still have the paperbacks -- which I prefer but no longer have space to store anymore... LOL. the common basis for the stories of the lives on this far off world, originally colonized by humans, and then because of circumstances evolved differently from earth. Although, normally I don't read Sci Fi Fantasy, I enjoyed this series a lot.
