Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Alice Norton was a college freshman when the Great Depression left her father unable to afford tuition. Forced to quit school, she did not quit her dreams. While working at a library in Cleveland, Ohio, she wrote a novel inspired by a patron, The Prince Commands, which was published in her early twenties. Because the publisher doubted boys would buy an adventure story written by a woman, Alice Norton became Andre Norton. When science fiction became popular in the 1950s, Norton found her passion, writing over 100 science fiction and fantasy novels, many for young adults. Prolific until the end of her life, she completed her last novel, Three Hands for Scorpio, at age 93.
