Visited andre-norton.org for the first time since her death. Publishing books since 1934! It's unfortunate that most of the obituaries have focused on the Witchworld titles, as in my mind these weren't half as good as her young adult science fiction which I read as a *g* young adult. Favourites:
- Judgement on Janus
- Dread Companion
- The Beast Master & Lord of Thunder
I hope that someday, someone will make a movie that will do justice to the Beastmaster stories. But Beastmaster's Ark isn't as good IMHO. Not as pacy or immediate as the first 2. I didn't mind Tani, but she felt like a character manufactured purely in the interests of the 'two by two' theme. Too neat a fit with Storm. Too much the rebellious child/love interest.
