Andre Alice Norton was a 20th century American science fiction writer. She also wrote historical fiction and contemporary fiction. Andre Norton was her pseudonym. She was the first woman to receive the Gandalf Grand Master Award from the World Science Fiction Society in 1977. Norton was awarded the coveted Damon Knight Memorial Grand Master Award from the SFWA in 1983. "Star Hunter" tells the story of a man who thinks with another's brain as he is pursued in a dangerous game of hide and seek. This adventure story captures the reader's attention from the very first sentences. "Nahuatl's larger moon pursued the smaller, greenish globe of its companion across a cloudless sky in which the stars made a speckled pattern like the scales of a huge serpent coiled around a black bowl. Ras Hume paused at the border of scented spike-flowers on the top terrace of the Pleasure House to wonder why he thought of serpents. He understood. Mankind's age-old hatred, brought from his native planet to the distant stars, was evil symbolized by a coil in a twisted, belly-path across the ground. And on Nahuatl, as well as a dozen other worlds, Wass was the serpent."
