I agree that some fanfic is outrageously priced - especially when some of the stuff people are asking $50 for is actually available for free if you know where to look. There is a little bit of Darkover fanfic on fanfiction.net. Some is in English, some in French, some in German, and some in Portuguese. I'm actually prepared to learn Portuguese if I have to, because I really want to read those stories! I've found other stories elsewhere - one of them an extremely explicit alternate scenario of how Regis and Danilo dealt with Dyan Ardais. It's not remotely compatible with the novels, but I suppose it could have happened that way if MZB hadn't been essentially writing the overarching story from both ends, 40 years apart. Aside from a few continuity glitches, I thoroughly enjoyed Hastur Lord, and the latest novel (Children of Kings) manages to take another look at the Dry Towns without the requisite "Dry-Towners-are-terrible-and-irredeemable-misogynists" take. If you like, I can PM you a list of what I've found and links, if you'll do me the return favor.
