The Space Adventure Novels of Andre Norton 1978
Dust Jacket by Jack Gaughan, Frontmatter by Elizabeth R. Cooke. ~ $7.95 each ~ Binding: 5.625 x 8.25 - Brown Cloth Boards with Gold Lettering (Publisher states the color is Burnt Orange), Orange End Papers.

The Space Adventure Novels of Andre Norton contain all the color, action-packed adventure, and emotional appeal that discriminating readers of science fiction have come to anticipate with every Andre Norton tale. The setting is the time of rapid interstellar colonization in the wake of atomic wars on earth. All the favorite Norton devices are present: time travel, mysterious inventions, and magic, as well as her paramount themes: freedom and integrity of the individual, perils of technology, and temptations of elite power groups. The very human heroes –in these stories are all involved in painful, dangerous journeys across space and time. But more than mere survival is always at stake. The quests have moral ramifications that are fostered by the physical ordeal. The heroes are all struggling for maturity, self-confidence, and freedom, and discover inner survival resources they never dreamed they had! Norton makes her stories come alive by skillfully conveying a sense of the depths of time and space and by the vivid archeological dimensions of her worlds. And no Norton book would be complete without at least one feline “brother-in-fur”!

Norton casts an intoxicating spell - a hopeful, ecumenical vision of different races, cultures, and life-forms cooperating for the general good. The universality of her human concerns invites identification and sympathy, while the sheer enjoyment of the stories compels the reader on and on. There is a special and addicting flavor to any Norton book, and this is especially true with these seven adventures of Andre Norton, brought together in sturdy hardcover editions for the first time by Gregg Press.

The Time Traders Series 1978
Dust Jacket and Frontmatter by Wayne Barlowe ~ $8.95 each ~ Binding: 5.625 x 8.25 - Dark Blue Cloth Boards with Silver Lettering, Blue End Papers.

THE TIME TRADERS SERIES by Andre Norton is composed of four novels chock full of adventure, spanning time and space, introducing great mysteries and strange, powerful races. Among the heroes are Ross Murdock, a dashing ex-con; Dr. Gordon Ashe, a surprisingly independent archeologist; Travis Fox, a full-blooded Apache; and Kerara Trehern, a beautiful Polynesian scientist. In each book, a winning combination of these four are sent, as part of the U.S. government team of time-travelers, out into space and back into time on a series of wild and dangerous journeys that will astound and delight every reader. The unique fusion of time travel into the past, the drama of East-West confrontation, and gloriously detailed contact with alien cultures makes THE TIME TRADERS SERIES a special reading experience for the countless seasoned Andre Norton fans as well as new arrivals into the fold. The Gregg Press editions are bound in cloth with complete reinforcement and foil stamping — a durable binding suitable for long-lasting works.
