Marion Zimmer Bradley Accused of Child Molestation and Rape Posthumously

Marion Zimmer Bradley’s daughter has posthumously accused her mother of sexually abusing her between the ages of 3 and 12.

I had no idea that Marion Zimmer Bradley’s former husband had been tried and convicted of child abuse, rape and child sexual molestation while she was alive. I also had no idea that Zimmer’s daughter was a documented victim of her father.

Where were the pagan community elders on this issue? Why was this information not more well known? Bullshit Elders and we all have a theory I am sure.

For those of you who are aware of the diversity of her literary works, have a look at this and I wonder if anyone has pointed this out to others…I find it suspicious to be honest about culture wars when such things arise…better to know when to get out of the way than to get caught in a catch 22 :

Here are a list of articles detailing the accusations against Marion Zimmer Bradley.

There are links within these articles to additional articles that detail the conviction of Zimmer’s former husband on child rape charges and transcripts of a deposition given by Marion Zimmer Bradley on this issue is included in the links below.
