Andre NortonAndre Norton (Alice Mary Norton) (1912-2005) aka Andrew North

For well over a half century, Andre Norton was one of the most popular science fiction and fantasy authors in the world. Since her first SF novels were published in the 1940s, her adventure SF has enthralled readers young and old. With series such as Time Traders, Solar Queen, Forerunner, Beast Master, Crosstime, and Janus, as well as many stand-alone novels, her tales of action and adventure throughout the galaxy have drawn countless readers to science fiction.

Her fantasy, including the best-selling Witch World series, her "Magic" series, and many other unrelated novels, has been popular with readers for decades. Lauded as a Grand Master by the Science Fiction Writers of America, she was the recipient of a Life Achievement Award from the World Fantasy Convention. Not only have her books been enormously popular; she also inspired several generations of SF and fantasy writers, especially many talented women writers who have followed in her footsteps. She died at her home in Murfreesboro, Tennessee.
