A History of this Website


   Way back in 1969 I came across a little beat up ACE book titled Daybreak 2250 AD. Between being a nine year old watching Apollo missions on the TV and reading this book I was hooked and started reading any science fiction I could get my hands on. Somehow I kept this book (along with others). In 1989 moved to the state of Florida. In 1992 I Discovered that I was only about twenty miles from the great lady. Wrote her a note and dropped it in the mail thinking that I would never hear from her. To my surprise I received a note back saying “here is my number – give me a call”. When I called her I got invited to her house. And so I spent about four hours in her house talking with her about all sorts of topics. She was showing me some of the Cover Art Masters she had hanging around the house. I mentioned that I just couldn’t find a copy of Witch World and she led me to her private library. Without my asking, I parted from her house with a dozen signed books of various titles. I really can’t think of any other person who would be so generous and kind to a total stranger.

[Turns out - the reason I couldn't find a copy of Witch World around the Orlando area was that the Russian market had just opened up, and Andre's people had scoured the area for every used book they could get their hands on to send to Russia for translation and sale.]

   And so I drove my wife nuts collecting her books, and spending many hours on the computer obtaining and compiling data. Now it’s time to share some of this data with the world. I have identified over 300 non-fiction titles, with 1100+ known English editions (not counting reprints) and several hundred Non-English prints. Of course I am always looking for additional items and will add them as I luck upon them.

   In the bibliography I attempt to list any time that a story appears in a new publication, is released by a new publisher or changes format (ie: Hard Cover to Paperback).

   I will not make the claim that this is a complete list of her work but it is the most comprehensive list of any that I have seen on the internet. I have included books edited by her and have included over 6500 various pictures of Cover Art. I have included Non-Fiction items written by Andre such as magazine articles or introductions / forwards which appear in books by other authors. Also listed are articles about Andre or reviews of her books. However the Non-Fiction items are listed in separate appendices and do not receive the same attention as her fiction works.

So peruse and enjoy – or better yet - go read a book by Andre Norton (LOL) ~ Jay P. Watts
