Some Miscellaneous Listings


 This is a listing of various things that one can keep coming across when they are researching Andre's work. I include them because in many places they are incorrectly listed, and over the years I have been able to exclude them from Andre's work usually by obtaining them and getting the proof firsthand.

  • Andre Norton's contemporary Alan E. Nourse might be mistaken for a pen name of hers.  He was a real person, a physician and s.f. author, and in fact the two shared an Ace Double edition.
The Last Planet / A Man Obsessed
 
Upon reading Dr. Nourse's "Rocket to Limbo," I was struck by the Norton-esque "sense of wonder" style.  That and the similar name spurred me to look him up on Wikipedia, where it is noted (without citation) that readers are often tempted to conflate the two authors. So, I'm not the only one!
