In 1959 Andre Norton published The Beast Master, a fast-paced science fiction adventure that introduced to readers a new kind of hero, Hosteen Storm. Storm, a Navajo from the American southwest, served in the Planetary Confederacy forces as a Beast Master teamed with an African eagle, a meercat, and a dune cat.

Telepathically linked to his team animals, Storm served valiantly in the war that eventually defeated the alien Xiks, though victory could not prevent the aliens from destroying Earth. With his homeworld gone, Storm emigrated to the colonized frontier planet Arzor, where he would have to help fight a holdout Xik force that has brought the war to his adopted home.

In Lord of Thunder, Storm's beast master skills and animal partners are needed to unravel the mystery behind a huge gathering of the indigenous Norbies. Only Storm and his half-brother Logan Quade can penetrate the Norbies' clan secrets and discover what is behind the threat of an uprising that could destroy the tenuous peace between the colonists and the aliens who share their planet.

These two novels are science fiction adventure at its best. Here is exciting space opera full of colorful, absorbing SF action on an alien world, as only Andre Norton can write it.

Praise for Beast Master's Planet

"Andre Norton has created an air of mystery and suspense which captivates and holds the reader until the final pages."
--San Francisco Chronicle on The Beast Master

"A compelling and compassionate tale."
--New York Times on The Beast Master

"Again Andre Norton proves that she can write just about the best far-worlds-adventure stories anyone is doing nowadays. They have color; they have action; they have mystery; they have the 'sense of wonder' that some people would contend is out of place in Twentieth Century writing; and they are so well-written that every detail is convincing. The basic theme of The Beast Master is a grand one, and I hope we haven't heard the last of Hosteen Storm and his team."
--P. Schuyler Miller of Astounding Science Fiction on The Beast Master

"Another jewel in the dazzling crown of the queen of outer space."
--Cleveland Press on The Beast Master

"A brilliant writer...a fascinating story...a dramatic and intense book."
--Columbus Dispatch on The Beast Master

"Exciting adventure conceived with splendid imagination."
--New York Herald Tribune on The Beast Master

"Thrilling science-fiction."
--Springfield Republican on Lord of Thunder

"Lord Of Thunder is Andre Norton's latest novel. She has been thrilling the readers for more years now than some of us would care to admit. This delightful book journals the adventures of Hosteen Storm, a Beast Master, and his two companions, an eagle and a cat. Storm's further adventures (we encountered him before in The Beast Master) only to serve to point out once again that Andre Norton is right at home with the top-ranking science-fiction authors."
--American Book Collector on Lord of Thunder

"Dramatic, logical and swift....Good science-fiction."
--Chicago Tribune on Lord of Thunder
