AndreNorton wrote three ScienceFiction novels connected with the planet Warlock:
* ''Storm Over Warlock'': Shann Lantee is the sole survivor when Throgs attack. With Ragnar Thorvald, whose ship is shot down soon after, they must survive -- and discover the secret race living on Warlock
* ''Ordeal in Otherwhere'': Charis Nordholm is brought to Warlock to deal with the matriarchial Wyverns
* ''Forerunner Foray'': Ziantha's discovery of a Forerunner artifact leads to across planets to find more, and encounters a man who proves to be Shann and Charis's son.

''Foray'' also opens on Tikil, the same world as her ''Literature/{{Catseye}}''.
