Marion Zimmer Bradley's Darkover is a collection of fantasy and science fiction short stories by Marion Zimmer Bradley. The stories are set in Bradley's world of Darkover. The book was first published by DAW Books (No. 929) in October, 1993.

The stories are divided into four sections, each preceded by a brief overview of Bradley's thoughts on that category's main subject(s). Some of the stories were previously unpublished, notably the "Hilary" stories that had been intended as drafts for a proposed novel about the character Hilary Castamir. Other stories in this collection originally appeared in previous Darkover anthologies edited by Bradley, although not all of her previous anthology contributions are reprinted here.
