A Note from Sandy ~ I think you can take it for granted that I really don't think much of the last three books of the Beastmaster series.  I don't think an author who tries to continue a series begun by another author ever comes off quite right.  The Solar Queen series were also continued by two different authors, and there again they don't quite make it.  Redline the Stars, with P. M. Griffin does okay, but is still a little "off."  Derelict for Trade and A Mind for Trade, with Sherwood Smith, ... "Would the real Solar Queen please stand up?"  The most successful collaborations of Andre Norton's later years are those set in an entirely different milieu, such as the Carolus Rex series set in an alternate universe, where the earth spirits are still active, and the Dauphin of France survives the Terror of the French Revolution.  The Elvenbane series is another example of a successful collaboration, although I think Andre Norton had been more sympathetic to elves.  These books may have been written mostly by the co-authors, but since the series wasn't previously started by Andre Norton, one doesn't notice any discrepancies.  Well, there aren't any--the books are new creations.  And no matter whose name is on the cover, they're pretty good reads.  Though I'm not sure I would have purchased any of these if Andre Norton's name hadn't been on them.  She is, was, and always will be the best--The Grand Old Dame of Science Fiction--and Fantasy.
