Well, I learned this news a while ago, but didn’t think there was a need to post it up. Then I started getting a million letters from you guys saying how disheartening it was to hear about the death of Marion Zimmer Bradley, So here we go.
On September 25, Marion Zimmer Bradley, author of ‘THE MISTS OF AVALON’ died of a heart attack. While I have never read her books, I’m told they are one of the greatest works of modern fantasy.
I recently discovered that she had plans to release an album of LOTR songs called ‘The Starlit Jewel’. The company involved ‘Flowinglass Music’ recently sent me some info regarding the album.
