Author Andre Norton (1912-2005) would have turned 100 today, an age that would in no way come near to the number of books she wrote. The quiet librarian who assumed a male name published her first book, The Prince Commands in 1934. Most of her early books were written for young adults: she wrote of romance and spies and pirates and the Civil War and murder and retold children's stories. In the early 1950s she began published science fiction. For many people she was a gateway to reading. She worked until the end, producing stories that thrilled, amazed, and enthralled.
All of which makes me realize it's about time I entered Witch World again.
