I am voting "kill" for the only one of those I've read, Mists of Avalon (I did not vote in the other questions, because that wouldn't be fair), because its author was a terrible person. Like, if you want to investigate why, the trigger warnings and the things to insert in the [] in the Google phrase "Marion Zimmer Bradley []" are "child sexual abuse" and "rape".

That said, when I read Mists of Avalon years before finding out about all of that, I liked it well enough to read the whole series. (I'm not sure that means it's good, though. I was a lot younger then.) And I'm pretty sure it has the status of "important text in the genre" of feminist SFF. So you may want to discard my vote. Just. Now you have the context, and also understand why I got rid of every book in my library Bradley ever had anything to do with. (I'm still sad about Tiger Burning Bright, as that cooperation with Andre Norton and Mercedes Lackey was phenomenal.)
