Re: Darkover novels..
I have not read any of Zimmer Bradley's Darkover books, but her stand-alone novel Hunters of the Red Moon was one of my favorite books as a kid. I've read it five times.
How do the Darkover books compare?
I'm like you on this except I have only read Hunters Of The Red Moon twice.
