5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Sci-Fi
I read a great many Andre Norton books during the 1970's (when they were pretty much mandatory in most municipal libraries) but can't remember if that included "Time Traders".

Nevertheless, this is epic sci-fi which takes in both time and space travel.

Andre Norton had an incredible future vision when penning her stories and her concepts and ideas...

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Sci-Fi, 30 Dec 2008
This review is from: The Time Traders (Paperback)
I read a great many Andre Norton books during the 1970's (when they were pretty much mandatory in most municipal libraries) but can't remember if that included "Time Traders".

Nevertheless, this is epic sci-fi which takes in both time and space travel.

Andre Norton had an incredible future vision when penning her stories and her concepts and ideas were far in advance of those popular at the time, i.e. little green men from Mars etc. This book was written around 1958, yet in the particular fictional world it is stated that manned space exploration failed to develop further once humans had set foot on the Moon. What an almost uncanny prediction of how things turned out in real life. (Should point out in other Norton books, mankind has gone to the stars).

A compelling read and worth a place in any sci-fi collection. I'm looking forward to adding more Andre Norton reprints to my collection as they become available.

Not only do you get the Time Traders which is an excellent story in itself, but the follow up novel is also in here (although it seems a little ragged around the end). If you like tales of heroism and adventure, you will love this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Andre Norton was a genius, 12 July 2013

This review is from: Time Traders (Kindle Edition)
So far ahead of when she was writing, it's easy to see why Andre Norton was so celebrated in her lifetime. Spread the word, she's still worth reading today and is more than a match for all but the current maestro of sci-fi.

This book is two in one and introduces you to the Time Agents, a great series that any sci-fi fan will hold their feelings cheap who have not read Andre Norton on St Crispin' s Day, or any other day!

Loved the 1st part but seemed to loose its direction in part two. Unhappy with the way it ended.
Glad i did not pay for it.

Andre's writing style is unique, and found great nostalgia in re-reading some of her tales. Enjoyed this immensely, and feel is a good introduction to the 'golden age' writers
