For well over a half century, Andre Norton was one of the most popular science fiction and fantasy authors in the world. With series such as Time Traders, Solar Queen, Forerunner, Beast Master, Crosstime, and Janus, as well as many standalone novels, her tales of adventure have drawn countless readers to science fiction. Her fantasy novels, including the bestselling Witch World series, her Magic series, and many other unrelated novels, have been popular with readers for decades. Lauded as a Grand Master by the Science Fiction Writers of America, she is the recipient of a Life Achievement Award from the World Fantasy Convention. An Ohio native, Norton lived for many years in Winter Park, Florida, and died in March 2005 at her home in Murfreesboro, Tennessee. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

Complimentary Review Copy Provided by Publisher Through NetGalley I've had this book for a while now reading a story every now and then so as to enjoy them all individually. So today I was offered High Hallack 3 to review and decided to read the last two stories and put my review of it out there for everyone. I think that the thing I liked most about it is how versatile Andre was, she even wrote great poetry *jealous*, and how her stuff still resounds today as fresh and new as the day it was first published. Andre was an awesome author who had plenty of talent and I for one will miss being able to read new stuff by her. I think my favourite story was the one set in her Witch World series just because I was already very familiar with the setting in that one. Though all the others were excellent too with Rider on a Mountain being another favourite from the book for me just because it had mind speaking horses and ballsy felines in it :D I recommend this to all Andre Norton fans who might not have read it yet and to anyone who enjoys great high fantasy writing that contains wonderful characters and interesting worlds.

...as always a treat! 27 May 2014
By eyes.2c - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Some of these short stories I've read before, others I've somehow missed out on, such as Noble Warrior. Certainly, it's a pleasure as always to revisit the worlds Norton created.
Having read the background novels to some of the short stories does make you go, oh yes, I remember. This collection is more a treat for those who are familiar with Norton's work rather than a newcomer.

By Arthur W. Jordin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Tales From High Hallack, Volume 2 (2014) is a collection in the High Hallack series, following Tales From High Hallack, Volume 1. This volume contains an introduction and seventeen stories.

- "Introduction" (original) by Jean Rabe is an appreciation of Andre Norton by one of her co-authors.

- "Freedom" (Cleveland Press, 1943) presents some reasons why America is free.

- "Cats" (Omniumgathum, 1976) praises the virtues of felines.

- "Song of the Barbarian Swordsman" (Omniumgathum, 1976) divulges the product of sword swingers.

- "The Last Cohort" (Omniumgathum, 1976) concerns the faith of the final legionnaire.

- "Swamp Dweller" (Magic of Ithkar, 1985) involves a conspiracy to spread an evil belief.

- "Get Out of My Dream!" (Perilous Dreams, 1976) follows an agent invading the mind of a dreamer.

- "Of the Shaping of Ulm's Heir" (Tales of the Witch World, 1987) embroils a chambermaid in a marital plot.

- "Rider on a Mountain" (Friends of the Horseclans, 1987) puts a young heir in the hands of a traitor.

- "The Silent One" (Chilled to the Bone, 1991) changes a teenage girl in a strange way.

- "The Nabol's Gift" (All Hallows Eve, 1992) sends a young woman an unexpected beau.

- "Nine Threads of Gold" (After the King, 1992) takes an Old One to a castle inhabited by nine children.

- "A Very Dickensy Christmas" (The Magic of Christmas, 1992) engages a young woman in a ghostly Christmas performance.

- "Noble Warrior" (Catfantastic, 1989) brings a Siamese cat to his new princess.

- "Hob's Pot" (Catfantastic, 1991) delivers a devilish teapot to Hob's Green.

- "Noble Warrior Meets with a Ghost" (Catfantastic, 1994) whisks Noble Warrior from his new princess to a wannabe wizard.

- "Noble Warrior: Teller of Fortunes" (Catfantastic, 1996) leads the guardian cat to a family of gypsies.

- "Noble Warrior and the 'Gentleman'" (Catfantastic, 1999) reveals a pair of ghosts within a mansion.

These tales cover various themes, but many involve felines. Some are from anthologies edited by Norton, but the rest are from other sources.

The next installment in this sequence is Tales From High Hallack, Volume 3.

Highly recommended for Norton fans and for anyone else who enjoys tales of cats, warriors, and magic. Read and enjoy!

I have always enjoyed Andre Norton stories since I was a teenager ( I'm a little older now-64.). It is nice to have this collection Vol 2. I also have Vol 1. Some of her best ideas are short stories and always delivers a good read. It of course helps to have read her Witchworld books to see where the short stories fit in
