Good to see another Andre Norton fan. Over the last 12 months I've completed my collection of her books. 'taint the whole body, just the 8 or 9 series I loved with new titles in these series, reprints of old books & second hand books. Secret Santa Amergin gave me 4 of the titles I was wanting last christmas.
I also remember The People, I'll take a copy of this thread to my local library, but I'm not buying any more, right, my bookshelf is full, I have no room for more books.
Does anyone remember a book from the 60's (before the feminist movement) where the male author obviously wrote a typical adventure with a male hero, & changed the name & pronoun to female. When I read it in the late 70's it seemed way ahead of it's time, the hero(ine) was in total charge, nothing like females (traditional & emerging feminists) in stories of the period, which is why I assume the author wrote about a male character. I wish I could remember the title.
