Short Stories

by Andre Norton


Many people just are not aware of how prolific a writer Andre Norton was. Within her great body of work there are over 75 short stories, some of which have not been seen by the public in many years.

In early 2011 this website was contacted by the Estate of Andre Norton, they were trying to identify just what Andre had written in the way of short stories. It turned out that your webmaster was the only person the Estate could find with a complete set of shorts by Andre. Please do not look down on the estate for this, we have seen some of Andre's personal records and she had forgotten some of the shorts that she produced. By assisting the Estate of Andre Norton with the rebuilding of their records the world gets treated again to some of Andre’s finest works.

Pictured below are just eight of some of the rarest anthologies containing works by Andre.
