It is now being reported (volunteertv.com)that Andre Norton has passed away. While she was never one of my absolute favorites, her books were always ones that I enjoyed and often found to be quite thought provoking.
As an aside, are there really 30+ Witch World books? Man, I'm behind.
RIP Ms. Norton
