For three decades fantasy readers have thrilled to the wonder, excitement, and sheer storytelling magic of Andre Norton's Witch World. Since the first novel was published, the unique lure of Andre Norton's most beloved creation has earned this realm a cherished position in the hearts of fantasy readers. Peopled by humans and a stunning array of fantastic creatures, fraught with powerful magic and the power of ancient traditions rooted in a long-forgotten past, the Witch World “is a special place, where men and women find extraordinary things within them, one of those places a reader lives in. lf it had never been written, so many other worlds would be the poorer." (C.J. Cherryh)
Now, for the first time, Andre Norton has invited her favorite fantasy writers to share the wonder and magic of the Witch World in a very special shared world book. Robert Bloch. A.C, Crispin, Charles de Lint, Mercedes Lackey, Ardath Mayhar, Elizabeth Scarborough, Robert E. Vardeman and nine other fine writers have collaborated with Andre Norton herself to create heart-stopping adventure that sweeps from the peaks of High Hallack to the far reaches of Estcarp in the land of Andre Norton's imagination known as Witch World.
