Marijane Wernsman Collection of Marion Zimmer Bradley Research Materials

  • TxAM-CRS C000368
  • Collection
  • 1955-2014

This collection contains research materials relating to the author Marion Zimmer Bradley (1930-1999), collected by Dr. Marijane Werdsman of Texas Tech University. The materials were collected as part of a prospective biography of Bradley that Werdsman had intended to write, but the project fell apart when accusations arose in 2014 that Bradley had sexually abused her daughter Moira when Moira was a child.

Most of the materials were obtained from various Internet websites, and include materials relating to Bradley, to her fantasy world Darkover, and to the various online fan communities devoted to Bradley and her work.
