Saturday August, 20 2022 11 am to 4 pm LIVE 11 am to 1 pm on Zoom
Marion Zimmer Bradley’s Darkover novels, Science Fiction Intro to Polyamory
We’ll discuss fascinating novels based on the concept of a world on which a few hundred Terrans were marooned in crashed space ships hundreds of years ago and were forced to build a viable community from this limited gene pool. Many women found themselves unable to bear children on the new world. This resulted in a society where a fertile woman having more than one child by the same man was considered a kind of selfishness. Group marriage became the norm and ties of fosterage frequently stronger than ties of blood…Marion and many new writers as well as successful professional writers have chosen to create stories in the Dark Over universe dealing with the alternative lifestyle of multiply committed relationships. We’ll focus on “SPELL SWORD” and “FORBIDDEN TOWER”, two novels based on a real life two couple group marriage which lasted 16 years!
