Tales From High Hallack, Volume 2 by Andre Norton

Tales from High Hallack, Volume 2: the collected short stories of Andre Norton (Tales from High Hallack #2)
by Andre Norton
5*
BLURB: In the second volume of High Hallack, tales of high fantasy, science fiction and coming of age stories reach back to as far as 1943, yet are still as fresh and relevant today as when they were written. High Hallack was a place in Andre Norton's fiction, and was also the name of her genre writer's library she opened in Tennessee. It is a wonderous keep that she called home, and now High Hallack opens its gates and allows these amazing stories to unfold.
My Review: Complimentary Review Copy Provided by Publisher Through NetGalley I've had this book for a while now reading a story every now and then so as to enjoy them all individually. So today I was offered High Hallack 3 to review and decided to read the last two stories and put my review of it out there for everyone. I think that the thing I liked most about it is how versatile Andre was, she even wrote great poetry *jealous*, and how her stuff still resounds today as fresh and new as the day it was first published. Andre was an awesome author who had plenty of talent and I for one will miss being able to read new stuff by her. I think my favourite story was the one set in her Witch World series just because I was already very familiar with the setting in that one. Though all the others were excellent too with Rider on a Mountain being another favourite from the book for me just because it had mind speaking horses and ballsy felines in it :D I recommend this to all Andre Norton fans who might not have read it yet and to anyone who enjoys great high fantasy writing that contains wonderful characters and interesting worlds.
