Not just science zombies, but rebellious ones. Well, fire up the random phoneme generator , and see what sounds good today.
Brageds of Thombalosa? Mmmm . . . now.
Zortics of Farbinella? Jeez, no.
Faloons of Narabedla? Look, I'm tired. Let's knock off. That'll do.
If you don't know the name, well:
Marion Eleanor Zimmer Bradley (June 3, 1930 – September 25, 1999) was an American author of fantasy, historical fantasy, science fiction, and science fantasy novels, and is best known for the Arthurian fiction novel The Mists of Avalon, and the Darkover series. Many critics have noted a feminist perspective in her writing.
She co-founded a spiritual organization, the Center for Non-Traditional Religion.
Her popularity has been posthumously marred by accusations against her and her then-husband, the convicted sex offender Walter H. Breen, of child sexual abuse by her daughter Moira Greyland, among others.
It's a nasty story, the more you look into it.
