Celebrate Andre Norton's Amazing Work-- FREE

We lost her on Saint Patrick's Day in 2005. She is and will always be a legend: Andre Norton. She published her first novel in 1934, and was the first woman to receive the Gandalf Grand Master Award from the World Science Fiction Society. Forced out of teaching college by the Depression, Ms. Norton became a librarian and dropped Alice as her first name to appeal to boys, who were the most eager readers of science fiction and fantasy.

She was a hero, inspiration, and trail blazer long before the wonderful women who followed in her wake. Without her there would be no Moons, Rowlings, McCafferys. Thanks, Andre. We salute you! Here are just a few of the free offerings on Amazon. Plague Ship, The Time Traders, Star Born, All Cats Are Gray, Star Hunter, Storm Over Warlock, The People of the Crater, Voodoo Planet, The Gifts of Asti... check Amazon for even more!
