About the Author

For well over a half century, Andre Norton has been one of the most popular science fiction and fantasy authors in the world. Since her first SF novels were published in the 1940s, her adventure SF has enthralled readers young and old. With series such as Time Traders, Solar Queen, Forerunner, Beast Master, Crosstime, and Janus, as well as many stand-alone novels, her tales of action and adventure throughout the galaxy have drawn countless readers to science fiction.

Her fantasy, including the best-selling Witch World series, her "Magic" series, and many other unrelated novels, has been popular with readers for decades. Lauded as a Grand Master by the Science Fiction Writers of America, she is the recipient of a Life Achievement Award from the World Fantasy Convention. Not only have her books been enormously popular; she also has inspired several generations of SF and fantasy writers, especially many talented women writers who have followed in her footsteps. In the past two decades she has worked with other writers on a number of novels. Most notable among these are collaborations with Mercedes Lackey, the Halfblood Chronicles, as well as collaborations with A.C. Crispin (in the Witch World series) and Sherwood Smith (in the Time Traders and Solar Queen series). An Ohio native, Ms. Norton lived for a number of years in Winter Park, Florida, and now makes her home in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, where she continues to write, and presides over High Hallack, a writers' resource and retreat.

Andre Norton's first book.
I recommend this book for Andre Norton completest and fans of adventure stories that do not have any graphic sex, just great fun.

Ralestone's Luck
By Andre Norton

(c 1938 r 1966)

The Ralestone luck is a sword known as the luck of Lorne., a great blade forged during the Crusades by an Arab astrologer. It's been gone for over a century. Now the Ralestones must find it or lose every thing they have.

First I should say this it is not a science fiction or fantasy that Ms. Norton is so famous for. It is her second book, an adventure story following the The Prince Commands Prince Commands, also not a science fiction or fantasy, just a good adventure story.

I recommend this book for Andre Norton completest and fans of adventure stories that do not have any graphic sex, just great fun.

I had not realized that Andre Norton had written outside the scifi/fantasy genre. Reminds of a Nancy Drew/ Hardy Boys book.

Not one of her best, written early in her career and the dialog shows it. I don't believe that I ever finished reading my paperback copy but my mom loved it. I plan to read it again on my kindle this summer. If you are an ardent fan of Norton's (which I am then) by all means download this free copy and change gears in your head to mid 20th century when EVERYTHING was different. I don't think this is sci-fi rather a Goth tale. Norton did write other thing under different names but aren't we all glad she discovered fantasy and sci-fi?

What a treasure hunt! The Ralestones must find the lost Ralestone Luck. They don't even know what it is. Oops!

I first read this book many years ago, and I enjoyed it just as much now as then. This is one of Andre Norton's best young adult stories.

Andre Norton was such a wonderful author, whatever story she set her mind to. This is a good book for juveniles or adults. It has adventure, mystery and lost treasure...with a few twists throwm in. A good read.

I stumbled on this book, a published work of a budding author. While it does show some of the author's youthfulness at the time it was written, it also betrays her as one of the best authors of her time. The Luck is a sword. Lost, hidden away, the family has withered. But as they limp home, near penniless, their adventures reunite them with their Luck and with each other. One of my all time favorite reads!
