Say the name Andre Norton to someone who's read her work, and watch the flash in their eyes. There's something about Andre Norton.
She calls herself an old-fashioned storyteller and, indeed, whether it's fantasy, science fiction, adventure, romance or any other genre of popular literature, she manages to capture the audience's attention in the gracious style of the long-gone bardic masters. This quality, acknowledged by both the readers and critics has given her the title of the Grand Dame of Science Fiction and Fantasy.

Andre Norton's only "Estate Authorized" Fan created website.
Andre-Norton-Books.com is a non-profit site staffed by volunteers dedicated to the memory of Andre Norton.
Here you will find over 300 titles, hundreds of articles, thousands of images, and five hours of video, about Andre Norton and her works. Please take the time to look at everything; you may very well discover a bit of Andre you were previously unaware of. Check back often as we are adding new content every day.
We have come a very long way since we started online way back in 2004. Since that time we have earned the right to call our site the only “Estate Authorized” Andre Norton website. Because of the extensive quantity of information we have amassed over the years and our dedication to the preservation of Andre’s legacy the Estate granted us this right in 2013 but that is our only true attachment to the Estate.
This site is based on the original Andre-Norton-Books.com site, with major improvements, including a fully searchable database on all things Andre.
We are keeping the old site available for posterity's sake. With the amount of time spent formatting that site it would be a shame to see it just disappear.
Please use this site to learn all about Andre's wonderful work. There are books to read and share with friends, interesting tidbits of trivia and interesting images spread throughout the site. You may just find something you have never seen before or titles that you have never heard of: what a great find – a previously unread Andre Norton novel!
Keep in mind that many of Andre Norton's novels were written for what is considered the Young Adult market. Andre Norton was the gateway to science fiction and fantasy for many young readers and remains an excellent author for introducing Science Fiction & Fantasy to younger readers; she can't help but inspire their imaginations.
(Please note that our site has no paid ads and our purchase links are for our visitor's convenience only.)

Andre's Book of Shadows
Book of Shadows (Grimoire) -- The first thing all witches require is their Grimoire (Book of Shadows). This is the journal in which you write down absolutly everything yo do pertaining to witchcraft, you document any occult studies, spells, healing, lotions, portions, and magic of any sort. This is the journal that will record your journey into the world of witchcraft, and is something that will prove to be invaluable during your magical journey. The Book of Shadows is a book of rituals, magic, and healing lore, it is documented to teach, inspire, and guide, and offer ethical standards for all witches. Solitary witches pass their books down through the generations; covens document their practices and pass their spell crafting, rituals, cerimonies and healing practices down. Nothing is ever removed from the Book of Shadows, only added to. The high preistess, or high priest, was traditionally the keeper of the Book of Shadows for the individual covens, and only one copy existed.

Andre's friend and confidant "Tree Man" with her gnomes.
It may not be a surprise to you, but Andre was in love with trees and often spoke to the large live oak behind her library in Tennessee; his name was "Tree Man". I also have a love for trees and often can be found talking to the very old live oak in my back yard and of course Andre and I also shared a love for Dragons.
We recommend that you take a stroll through the The Black Forest and look at some of the tree sculptures that I have been known to do, including a special sculpture done for the Estate of Andre Norton, staring one of Andre's favorite dragons.
