Writing Darkover® Fiction
Darkover® is the property of Marion Zimmer Bradley and her heirs, and the right to prepare a derivative work belongs to the copyright holder. This means that even if you don't publish it or make money from it; it's still illegal. Nobody is allowed to write a Darkover® story or novel without a contract with the Marion Zimmer Bradley Literary Works Trust. You may not write a Darkover® story in English, French, German, or any other language. Any legitimate editor you sent it to would not publish it because that would be a violation of copyright laws and the Berne Convention. If you have an idea for a Darkover® story, create a new background -- a new universe -- rename your characters, and write it so that the story is clearly NOT Darkovan.
The name "Darkover" is a registered trademark, owned by the Marion Zimmer Bradley Literary Works Trust.
The Darkover® newsletter was discontinued years ago, and all back issues were sold off. (The entire DNL staff went to work for MZB's Fantasy Magazine, and didn't have time to do both.)
The Darkover® Grand Council Meeting is held on the East Coast each November. For information send a SASE (Self-Addressed Stamped Envelope) to Armida Council, PO Box 7203, Silver Spring MD 20907, USA.
