Hi Donna,

I downloaded Serenissima.  I waited awhile since I know your scans are 
always good, and I feel guilty if I grab them.  But since no one took this 
one I went ahead and got it.

Gravelight by Marion Zimmer Bradley

This is another clean scan and I've done the usual to prepare it for 
validation.  Should be a very easy validation.

Here's the synopsis.

Wycherly Musgrave doesn't have good luck with cars and alcohol. Trying to 
outrun the memory of a young woman he may have killed in a drunk-driving 
accident, Wych sends his expensive sports car sailing off the road.. .and, 
with his usual impossible luck, survives the crash with no more than a few 
bumps and bruises. The car is totaled, stranding Wycherly in the tiny 
mountain town of Morton's Fork. Making the best of a bad situation, Wych 
decides to try to dry out.

Wycherly isn't Morton's Fork's only unusual guest this summer: A movie star 
has taken up residence in a converted schoolhouse. Sinah Dellon left 
Morton's Fork as an infant foundling. Now she's come home to learn who her 
people were-and why she has the ability to read minds. But Sinah's psychic 
powers do not help her with the townsfolk, who turn from her in fear and 

Equally untrustworthy, according to the residents of Morton's Fork, are the 
RV-load of researchers from the Bidney Institute, come to investigate 
centuries of reported hauntings, vanishings, poltergeists, and other 
phenomena. They too are poking around in things better left unexplored. 
Before long,Truth Blackburn, heroine of Bradley's novel Ghostlight, 
discovers that the source of the psychic storm is a renegade Gate-and one 
with a connection to Truth's own tangled past. But she cannot close the Gate 
alone, and the true Keeper is nowhere to be found.

In despair, Wycherly Musgrave has made a pact with evil. In fear, Sinah 
Dellon feels her soul slipping away under attack from a vengeful spirit. In 
dread, Truth Blackburn must make a great sacrifice to save all the people of 
Morton's Fork, and the man she loves, from the power of the Gate.
