This collection concentrates on her early science fiction writing and contains four full length novels, two shorter novella length works, and one short story. Andre Norton was awarded the Gandalf Grand Master prize in 1977 for her science fiction works and was the first woman ever to receive this award.
This collection features works written between the late 1940s up until the 1960s.
I was pleasantly surprised at how fresh most of these stories feel. Only one (Voodoo Planet) feels even remotely dated. The rest have stood the test of time very well. This is mostly because of Norton's superb literary style. Her writing is concise and precise and without resorting to overly complex technical descriptions she is able to create living and believable worlds populated by exciting and interesting characters.
This collection is also presented really well on the Kindle. Formatting is well up to standard throughout, there is a full active table of contents and it even has a cover picture.
Any one of the first four stories would have been worth the 71 pence price of this collection on its own.
If you are looking for some classic "pulp" style science fiction adventure stories then you really can't go wrong with this collection. There is a lot of quality reading here that is well presented on the Kindle for a very cheap price.
A nice collection of short stories with a range of adventures on distant planets and intergalactic politics, etc. A nice read to pick up and put down in spare moments
These stories are about man living on distant planets, how they have been changed by them over many generations, and their interaction with visitors direct from earth.
I found Andre Norton's ideas very interesting and would recommend the book to anyone.
