Overview

Danger in the Stars!

The birth of a hero is never easy. Clumsy as an elephant in high heels, he is nothing like his legendary scout father.

But inside that bull-moose-of-a-body lies the heart of a hero whose moment has arrived! Next, a boy survives alien invasion - but must learn to think and act like his reptilian enemy to exact retribution for slaughter! These and two other tales of coming-of-age-through-peril from the writer who invented the genre. Includes The X Factor, Voorloper, The Eye of the Monster, and The Sioux Spaceman--all set in Norton's "Council/Confederation" universe!

At the publisher's request, this title is sold without DRM (Digital Rights Management).

Meet the Author

Called "a superb talent"" by The New York Times, Andre Norton was a legend in science fiction, and one of our greatest storytellers. She wrote science fiction novels of very high quality for nearly five decades, beginning with the now-classic novel Star Man's Son in 1952. Many of today's top writers, including C.J. Cherryh and Joan D. Vinge, have cited her as a primary influence on their own work. She was Guest of Honor at the 1989 World Science Fiction Convention, and received the Grand Master award from the Science Fiction Writers of America and the Lifetime Achievement Award of the World Fantasy Convention. Astoundingly prolific, with over thirty books in her celebrated "Witch World" series alone, she introduced three generations of SF readers to SF and fantasy, both through her critically acclaimed YA novels and her adult works, and remains today as one of the most popular authors in both fields.
