After 50 Years, Andre Norton Still Delivers

An early fan of Andre Norton works, this collection contained some I'd never known existed, to my delight. The stories revisited were as engaging as I remembered at age 12. A further search for more Norton tomes is now underway, and I look forward to reading her Witch World Series in order (which I did not do earlier in life). The only story I found less than satisfying was that of Drew Rennie and the Civil War storyline, but the conclusion of his saga

This was a fun collection of stories. I have to admit that I stopped when I got to the end of the science fiction section, but I expect I will get around to reading the historical fiction section someday when I run low on other reading materials. I liked Andre Norton's exploration of alien races most of all since that is an area that is frankly hard to do well in the science fiction genre. The underdog rising to glory was also a fun theme to follow. So if you like underdogs and aliens, take this ...more

Visiting my childhood

Andre Norton was one of the first scifi authors I discovered. As I read through this anthology, old friends entered my memories for the first time in years. I was glad to see that Andre Norton's tales of the Solar Queen and The Time Traders are still as spell-binding as I remember. The historical novels set during and after the U.S. Civil War were definitely stories from early in her career. The plot lines were interesting, but the execution of them seemed to go on and on a

Fantastic Megapack of Syfy stories

This megapack includes a wide variety of sci-fi story. Each one is uniquely different from the other, some are even sequel to other stories that is an integral part of Andre Norton world.

Highly recommended to show a wide variety of sci-fi stories that I'm worth reading.

Very good reading

I have enjoyed Andre Norton's books since I was a teenager.
I never knew that she also wrote Historical fiction which is my second reading choice.
In this megapack I was able to get both in one book. Good job!

Andre is versatile

I was not aware that Andre wrote anything but Science Fiction. This isn't her best stuff in my opinion, but if you like her, then it is worth it.

I'm going to write a review, even though I'm only part-way through this - i.e. I've read 5 novels out of the 15 it contains!

This book is pure nostalgia for me. When I was between the ages of 12 and 15 (1963 - 1966), I would wonder up Brunswick Street in Liverpool and look in the 3 or 4 second-hand book shops there. Most of the street is now demolished in favour of easier access to the motorway and, anyway, the notion of 3 or 4 bookshops being viable in the same road?

The shops used to have larg

Old school

Classics indeed. How to even rate and review this? Mostly good, if dated, and many more great read than lesser reads. Took me two-week period to get through though, it's like two thousand pages!!!!!!!

This is a wonderful collect of books, some I have read before and some I haven't. The last four books are historical, This I found slightly harder to read although once I got into them they were fine.

Nice variety

A great mixture of sifi,western and murder mystery stories blended with a bit of serial episodes added to extend one's imagination.

Alice Mary Norton always had an affinity to the humanities. She started writing in her teens, inspired by a charismatic high school teacher. First contacts with the publishing world led her, as many other contemporary female writers targeting a male-dominated market, to choose a literary pseudonym. In 1934 she legally changed her name to Andre Alice. She also used the names Andrew North and Allen ...more
