Tales from High Hallack, Volume 2: The Collected Short Stories of Andre Norton Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Stories and poems from one of the greatest imaginations in literary historyEach year, Garner's troupe makes its way to Ithkar Fair. The actors charm the crowd, winning applause and lavish reward, but none captures the audience's imagination like the yellow-eyed, silver-haired girl whose performance conceals pain that few can understand. She is a Quintka--her coloring makes that plain--and yet even Garner, who has seen more of the world than anyone, can unlock the secrets of her unknown father, who left her mother to sacrifice herself to save the child. As she passes her seventeenth birthday, the mystery of her past drives her into danger, as she fights to find answers that no mortal should possess."Swamp Dweller" is a classic Andre Norton story--lush, thrilling, and impossible to put down. Like the others in this invaluable volume, it is more than mere escapism--it is an entrancing look into another world.

Synopsis:

In the second volume of High Hallack, tales of high fantasy, science fiction and coming of age stories reach back to as far as 1943, yet are still as fresh and relevant today as when they were written.  High Hallack was a place in Andre Norton's fiction, and was also the name of her genre writer's library she opened in Tennessee.  It is a wonderous keep that she called home, and now High Hallack opens its gates and allows these amazing stories to unfold.
