A prolific novelist and short-story writer first published in 1976, Diana L. Paxson is best known for two fantasy book collections. The Chronicles of Westria tells the story of a future Northern California, centuries after a cataclysm swept away modern industrial society. The Avalon series, which she continued after the late Marion Zimmer Bradley’s novel Mists of Avalon, re-imagines the Arthurian legends from the point of view of the women behind the throne. Active in the Paganism and Heathenism community, she founded the Fellowship of the Spiral Path in 1986, is an Elder in the Troth and the Covenant of the Goddess, and edits the Troth’s journal, Idunna. In 1966, Diana organized a medieval tournament that later grew into the Society for Creative Anachronism. She lives with her family in Berkeley, California.
