Andre Norton RIP

Jayme Lynn Blaschke's Gibberish: "Andre Norton has passed on
SFWA Grandmaster Andre Norton died last night in her sleep. Given her recent health troubles, this does not come as a surprise. That it was semi-expected does nothing to mitigate the loss to the science fiction and fantasy community. I never had the chance to meet her, but from all accounts she was a gracious and friendly person.

Further information is to be posted at her official website when it is available."

This is sad news indeed. When I was a kid, I loved Andre Norton's books, and I read a lot of them in the old Ace editions, including one or two of the "Andrew North" books as well.
