Andre Norton (b1912 - d.2005.) born in Cleveland,Ohio,pseudonym of American writer Alice Mary Norton who also writes as 'Andrew North' and 'Allen Weston'.Under the 'Andrew North' name,her first published story ran in 1947 - 'The People of the Crater' (in Fantasy Book').Since then her many novels reflect a fantasy slant with much melodrama, incorporating excursions into unknown worlds.Her earliest work was written for juveniles - fast-paced action/adventure for boys - but this overt power-fantasy (typified by 'Sword in Sheath',1949) diminished in her work as she began to produce adult sci-fi.'The Witch World' books form a separate sequence in her writing,but all of her adult work is interrelated (if only tenously) by being set in the same vast future galaxy where alien races like the Zacathans exist.Adventures in time travel feature in 'The Crossroads of Time' (US,1956) but see rja490714 - UK,1976,UK,8vo HB+dw/dj,1st edn. Among her other novels are: 'Star Guard' (US,1955),'Sea Siege' and 'Star Born' (both US,1957) - see rja490814 ('Star Born' - UK,1973,UK, 8vo HB+dw/dj,1st edn),'Star Gate' (US,1958),'Catseye' (US,1961),and 'Eye of the Monster' (US,1962). Some of Andre Norton's short stories have been collected in 'High Sorcery' (US,1970),and she has compiled the anthologies 'Space Service' (US,1953),'Space Pioneers' (US,1954) and 'Space Police' (US, 1956).
