The story of Simon Tregarth, who fled the Earth through an inter-dimensional gate and ended up in a world where magic worked and the forces of evil threatened the benevolent witches who lived there, was the start of what was to become Andre Norton's most popular, and longest-running series. The first three novels, Witch World, Web of the Witch World, and Year of the Unicorn, are offered for the first time, in a handsome trade paperback edition, with an introduction by C. J. Cherryh.
