We are sorry to say that science fiction author Andre Norton passed away this morning in her home in Murfreesboro, Tennessee.

“Andre Norton was a very dear friend and great mentor. She not only was the pioneer for women writing in science fiction and fantasy, she was also a kind-hearted and dedicated proponent for all those who followed her. It was she who said that I should have a white dragon and that it should be a sport — and so “The White Dragon” was born. I know that I am not the only one who will miss her brilliant writing and her personal charm and grace.” – Anne McCaffrey
