Andre` Norton was one of my favorite authors as a child. I remember picking out Star Born at a visiting Bookmobile while I was in the sixth grade and being enthralled with the story.

Later I discovered her Solar Queen series through Voodoo Planet/Star Hunter (an Ace double book) and Sargasso of Space. These stories fired my imagination more than anything else did at the time.

In this Kindle Collection of Novels, you get two of the Solar Queen tales (Voodoo Planet and Plague Ship) as well as the excellent Star Hunter, and Star Born. There are an additional three novels that I haven't read yet, but will enjoy through this anthology.

While I am a little disappointed that I cannot get a collection of Miss Norton's entire group of Solar Queen adventures on Kindle, this is a reasonable start ... and at only a buck, it's hard to go wrong even if you decide you don't like her writing style.

Do be warned that much of the material is dated and has long been outstripped by real world science. But if you make allowances and read the books for enjoyment rather than picking them apart for inconsistencies, you'll have many enjoyable hours of touring among the stars.

Andre Norton was one of the best writers of science fiction and fantasy of her time and remains among the best ever. All of the included books are public domain and can be downloaded individually free, but this handy and very enjoyable collection provides an excellent and economical way of sampling Norton's skill.

Then you should buy this collection and read that book twice. Any thing written by Andre Norton or any of her Nom de Plumes is something you should read over and over till you have it committed to memory. I am some what surprised that more English teachers do not use Norton to encourage young readers. Children should be taught to have fun with reading. Read and learn and then learn from what you read. Take a trip around the world and never leave your chair.

I found that I had already read some of these stories AFTER I bought Visions.... I was not given the choice to see what was in this group . What really ticked me off was that , of the 2 stories I had NOT read, one had HORRIBLE GLITCHES . So much that I have no to read it. I really want to.....that because Andre Norton is such a masterful storyteller. Thus the low rating :(

Doesn't contain her really high quality novels but most of the stories are good reads. Andre Norton's books are worth having. However, I never liked her witch novels. I wish she were still with us.

All these books are available FREE from Project Gutenberg. They are also all included in the Andre Norton Megapack, which is 99¢, and contains 11 SFantasy + 3 Civil War books free from Project Gutenberg, plus one mystery by Norton + another writer. So, you can either get it free, or get more for the same or lower price. Unless you specifically want the mystery contained in the megapack, why pay anything?

Fun if dated sci-fi and fantasy romps. Would be nice if the document contained the original publication dates so we could understand the larger genre and social context in which these tales were written. A brief biography would also be good.
