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) see rja490714 - UK,8vo HB+ dw/dj,1st

'Catseye' (US,1961),and 'Eye of the Monster' (US,1962).
