Tales from High Hallack: Volume 1Andre Norton
science fiction, fantasy, short stories
For the first time, the Grand Dame of science fiction - Andre Norton - has her short stories gathered for her fans' reading pleasure. Tales reach back to the 1930s, as fresh and relevant today as they were when she wrote them... such was Andre's skill. High fantasy, fables, science fiction, coming of age stories, and more fill three volumes. This impressive, must-have collection includes stories of Witch World. There are cats sprinkled here and there, as Andre treasured them so. And there is magic in the writing, unequaled prose to delight readers of all ages. High Hallack was a place in Andre's fiction, and was also the name of her genre writer's library she opened in Tennessee. It is a wondrous keep that she called home, and now High Hallack opens its gates and allows these amazing stories to tumble out. Lose yourself in her enchanted words, and read them again and again.
