RIP Andre Norton

Sigh. As she had been sick for a long time, and was under hospice care, it isn't a surprise. But it is still sad for so many fans of SF and fantasy (and cats).

Fantasy/SF author Andre Norton died today of congestive heart failure at her home in a Nashville suburb at the age of 93. According to the obituary on CNN, "She asked to be cremated along with a copy of her first and last novels." Now that's a writer.

SFWA recently announced the creation of an award in her honor, The Andre Norton award, to be presented to a deserving YA (young adult) SF or fantasy novel. This is fitting as so many fans (and writers) were first introduced to the genre through Andre Norton's YA novels. I'm so glad she was able to find out about this award before passing away.

When she was in bad health some time ago, I sent her a card (and a Beanie Baby cat). She sent me a very nice letter in return. I wish I had written to her again, but the more I put it off, the guiltier I felt about writing back. Let that be a reminder to us all. :-(

Here is a wonderful tribute to Andre Norton from Susan Shwartz on sff.net's newsgroup, sff.discuss.obituaries. This post won't stay up forever, so read it when you can. Even if you can no longer access the post, you should visit Susan Shwartz's own website. Susan Shwartz collaborated with Andre Norton on some novels and is also a respected writer on her own.
