Andre Norton bibliography

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to navigation Jump to search

These works were written or edited by the American fiction writer Andre Norton (Andre Alice Norton, born Alice Mary Norton, 1912–2005). Before 1960 she used the pen name Andrew North several times and, jointly with Grace Allen Hogarth, Allen Weston once.[1][a]

Norton is known best for science-fiction and fantasy, or speculative fiction, a field where her work was first published in the 1950s. She also wrote crime fiction, romantic fiction, and historical fiction, mainly before 1960. The term non-genre distinguishes that other work here, which expresses the perspective of the Internet Speculative Fiction Database (ISFDB).[2]
