Yeah, I know about Bradley's history, but she is also very much "foundational text in the genre" and I have a whole stack by her because my last clean-out predated me finding out about most of it. The only one of them I've read is Tiger Burning Bright (which I don't think I will be able to get rid of despite its many problematic bits because there are so many good bits too.) (I dumped my Card last clearout but I kept Pastwatch because some books are important enough that for me it's worth detaching the author from the work. It's not like the authors are getting any money from me, I only buy used unless I want to actively support the author.)

I voted "F" because I think I want to read Mists of Avalon so I can say I have read it and then dump it. (Probably I want to read one Darkover book too, just so I can say I did? And then dump the whole pile, at least the non-cowritten ones.) But if enough people vote to dump-without-reading for Mists of Avalon, that will save me the trouble...
