The "Witch World" Saga

by Andre Norton



Witch World -- Ex-colonel Simon Tregath, once blackmailed into helping black marketeers during the war is in trouble. Having turned his back on the organization, he is now on the run from its best assassins. Hiding in the back alleys of New York, he runs into Dr Jorge Petronius a man with a reputation for helping people escape pursuit. Using a seat from King Arthur’s Round Table, he sends Simon into another world where the laws of nature are different and magic works. The rulers of Escarp are the Council of Witches, women of POWER. It seems that Power can only be used by virginal women. Meanwhile a race of hostile technologically advanced aliens(the Kolder) , having entered through another gate, are at war with Escarp, trying to find a way to seize their power and conquer the Witch World. Simon joins the Escarp army and teams up with a young witch whose life he had saved. Through many skirmishes and battles with the Kolder, they discover that Simon has a Power of his own, in spite of his gender. Can the witches accept magical aid from a man, and can he add enough strength to save the world?
