Andre Norton RIP

Andre Norton died this morning. In my teens I think I read every single book she had written. Years ago I saw a comment by a reviewer, that Norton had never written a really great book, but she'd also never written a bad one, and that was a better acheivement than most writers could boast of, especially if they'd written as many as she had. May the pleasure and inspiration she brought to millions stand her in good stead.

I found my first Andre Norton book in a garbage dump in 1963 on Long Island NY where I was a kid about 8 years old. It was titled The Outlaws of Mars. I read everything else I could find thereafter. Good literature in simpler times.
