1960

Begins with a biography that includes information on Norton’s professional relations and then surveys her books for young people to I959. This, combined with Becky D. Peters’ thesis constitutes the best source of biographical information. Lofland’s thesis contains a primary bibliography, a brief secondary bibliography and a list of reviews.

  • The Asbestos Shelf by Fred Patten ~ Salamander No. 3 (July) (pgs. 5-8) Accompanied by the article by Bill Donaho that inspired Frederick Patten to write the main article. See also a couple of articles with brief mentions of Andre Norton by Fred Patten from Mistily Meanderings #6, October 1963.

Although difficult to obtain and current only to 1961, this article is noteworthy as the first examination of Norton’s adult and juvenile fiction and as the only attempt to annotate Norton’s titles. In the non-bibliographic portion of the article, Patten contends that Norton is an author with one plot: the alienated protagonist who must undergo various rites of passage and ally himself telepathically with noble animals to achieve his manhood. He is also critical of Norton’s female characterization (in contrast to Amanda Bankier, 1974), but sees more effective efforts in The Defiant Agents in the characterization of Kaydessa, the Mongol woman. In addition, Patten detects a movement away from the stylized plot of the masculine rite of manhood in Eye of the Monster and expresses hops for continued plot variation.

Reviewer states that “Andre Norton has found the tight mixture of excitement and maturity and has turned out many solid exciting, high-quality science fiction novels.” Finds the adventures of Hosteen Storm “exciting and imaginative.”
