Andre Norton

Fantasy author Andre Norton has passed on at the age of 93. More information is here.

Andre Norton has, over the course of her career, written over a hundred novels.The most important, for the authors who followed her, was Quag Keep, which was the first D&D novel (Though published by DAW, not TSR, as TSR did not publish books at that time), and was set in the World of Greyhawk.

Those of us who have followed in her footsteps offer our thanks.

More later,
