In April of 2015 an incomplete anthology was found in the files of Andre Norton. The file contained a proposal for an Anthology about different planets based on the signs of the zodiac edited by Andre Norton and Ingrid Zierhut (1988 & 89). Also in that file are six stories done by different authors, an outline by Andre for the planet Aquarius, and letters from various authors accepting, declining or asking for addition information. It is a shame that this never came to be and that five stories were never collected, or that Andre never wrote her story for Aquarius. Since this is an incomplete project we are posting it as a list of PDF files that you may access. We make no attempt to give our opinion on any of the stories, but hope that you enjoy them. We have not looked, but for all we know some of the six stories submitted may have been expanded into something else by the author, if you find this to be the case – Please let us know, and we will add said information to this list.
Note: All articles on this page are (PDF).
