Attention fans of Andre Norton.


Hello Kind Folks,

I have an idea for a new project but I need help.

The Idea – a pronunciation guide for names, places and other terms in Andre’s work.

I often get asked, how do you pronounce this name or that place. And truthfully, I have no idea. Generally my spelling sucks. And lets face it, a lot of names and places Andre used are hard to pronounce, especially in the Witch World Saga. For those of you who think I’m nuts or just plain stupid, you are just the person I need.

I would like to send out a list of names, places or things (even the ones I can pronounce) and get people to do the grammatical notation of said word. I still have to create a list but it wouldn’t take to long using all the glossaries I’ve collected and posted on the website over the years. Then I would go through those glossaries and add the grammatical info to it.

And so – I’m looking for volunteers to help with said project. I really want several people to help so I can see what multiple people think of each word.  You can sign up by emailing me at

Any and all help will be deeply appreciated. Again I’m looking for volunteers for I can’t afford to pay you. I can however give you credit on the website.

Synopsis ~

Write-up from back of both tradepaper and paperback editions ~

Since the arrival of the Three Lordly Ones centuries ago, all manner of folk have flocked to Ithkar Fair – to trade, to venerate, to scheme, and to game. In truth, they are a motley company. Come to Ithkar Fair, and meet a washerwoman’s son who seems to be a deadly (if amiable) assassin…a promising magician’s apprentice who finds the price of mastery quite high…a magnificent stallion with a strange affinity for his owner’s daughter…a young girl with a gift disguised as a disfigurement…a fiddler whose dream is realized in an unexpected way…and a cat who is more than merely a cat. All these and others have paid their gate-offering to find what they seek – and what they never expected – at Ithkar Fair.
