"The Beast Master" might easily have been just another Western played in futuristic terms. Miss Norton, however, endows the story of a homeless, revenge-driven man with her own inimitable touch, blending an acute sense of primitive mystery with still another of her well-conceived foreign worlds. The result is a compelling and compassionate tale. (p. 32)
