Say the name Andre Norton to someone who's read her work, and watch the flash in their eyes. There's something about Andre Norton.
She calls herself an old-fashioned storyteller and, indeed, whether it's fantasy, science fiction, adventure, romance or any other genre of popular literature, she manages to capture the audience's attention in the gracious style of the long-gone bardic masters. This quality, acknowledged by both the readers and critics has given her the title of the Grand Dame of Science Fiction and Fantasy.

An all new addition to "Andre Norton’s Book of Shadows"
We here at Andre-Norton-Books.com are very pleased to announce that we have obtained permission from the Estate of Andre Norton to reproduce for the first time anywhere, a very large piece of work commissioned by Andre in 1996. This work was undertaken to assist her and other writer’s with keeping track of the massive world she created which fan’s worldwide know as Witch World. For many years this work titled “An Index of Andre Norton’s Witch World” by Juanita Coulson has been kept under wraps at the Texas A&M ~ Cushing Memorial Library. This work covers all but the last three Witch World novels written by Lyn McConchie (only because they were written after 1996) and all of the short stories within the Witch World saga. 92 stories in all, plus a general information section.
We have reproduced it in its full glorious form without any editing and just a little reformatting. It is filed under “Andre Norton’s Book of Shadows” for that is what a Sorceress’s private guide book is called. You will find it split into two parts only because of its sheer size. This is a fantastic reference piece for fans of Andre’s Witch World, and we hope you will find it both interesting and useful.
So check out "Andre Norton’s Book of Shadows" to see it and many other items such as Andre’s personal scrapbooks.
The Only Estate Authorized Andre Norton Website.
Andre-Norton-Books.com is a non-profit site staffed by volunteers dedicated to the memory of Andre Norton.
Here you will find over 300 titles, hundreds of articles, thousands of images, and five hours of video, about Andre Norton and her works. Please take the time to look at everything; you may very well discover a bit of Andre you were previously unaware of. Check back often as we are adding new content every day.
We have come a very long way since we started online way back in 2004. This site is based on the original Andre-Norton-Books.com site, with major improvements, including a fully searchable database on all things Andre.
We are keeping the old site available for posterity's sake. With the amount of time spent formatting that site it would be a shame to see it just disappear.
Please use this site to learn all about Andre's wonderful work. There are books to read and share with friends, interesting tidbits of trivia and interesting images spread throughout the site. You may just find something you have never seen before or titles that you have never heard of: what a great find – a previously unread Andre Norton novel!
Please keep in mind that many of Andre Norton's novels were written for what is now called the Young Adult market. Andre Norton was the gateway to science fiction and fantasy for many young readers and remains an excellent author for introducing Science Fiction & Fantasy to younger readers; she can't help but inspire their imaginations.

Andre's friend and confidant "Tree Man" with her gnomes.
It may not be a surprise to you, but Andre was in love with trees and often spoke to the large live oak behind her library in Tennessee; his name was "Tree Man". I also have a love for trees and often can be found talking to the very old live oak in my back yard and of course Andre and I also shared a love for Dragons.
Please take a stroll through the The Black Forest and take a look at a collection of tree sculptures that I do as a hobby, including a special sculpture done for the Estate of Andre Norton, staring one of Andre's favorite dragons.
