    2. This one I give kudos to for getting back to the heart of the "Beast Master/Lord of Thunder" books; adventure, and alien encounters with strange off-world cultures.

    6. This must be a Youth Fiction genre. It seems to have been written for a younger audience. Interestingly, I remember Andre Norton with fondness - from my youth. Doesn't appeal anymore.

    7. I've always loved the Beast Master series, but I had trouble liking this one. It was ok, but much less Andre Norton than needed.
