Publisher's Summary

In this second volume of the Gorean Series, Tarl Cabot finds himself transported back to Counter-Earth from the sedate life he has known as a history professor on Earth. He is glad to be back in his role as a dominant warrior and back in the arms of his true love.

Yet, Tarl finds that his name on Gor has been tainted, his city defiled, and all those he loves have been made into outcasts. He is no longer in the position of a proud warrior, but an outlaw for whom the simplest answers must come at a high price. He wonders why the Priest Kings have called him back to Gor, and whether it is only to render him powerless.

    Story
    "Gorean Saga"

    The Gorean series is basically Conan the barbarian meets a smut novel on another world. There's lots of violent battles and vicious giant man eaters with a dash BDSM. The series gets a little repetitive as the books go on but not to badly for a 20 plus book series. If you liked the John Carter in 'A Princess of Mars' series most likely you'll enjoy these books there very similar. I prefer the Gorean series myself, except the ones narrated by women which I haven't bought so don't know if there good or not I personal dislike women narrates.

    Story
    "Fun adventure, but Lots of naked women"

    I like John Norman's books from an adventure standpoint, however, I must admit that knowing that every woman at some point is going to lose her clothes becomes at a point quite tedious. For some the master slave relationships might get on your nerves as well, but happily there is enough adventure to move the story along and keep most readers entertained. This volume tends to lag a bit, but it is important to lead into the next.

    Story
    "The Gor Saga"
    If you could sum up Outlaw of Gor in three words, what would they be?

    exciting, captivating, Thrilling


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Outlaw of Gor?

    when Tarl cabot was about to die by tarn only to find it was his old tarn from tarnsmen of Gor


    What does Ralph Lister bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    he makes the book come alive


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    when the men started to work together and won their fredom from the mine


    Any additional comments?

    Even though the book talks about a form of slavery and one could go so far as to say BDSM in some form only because it speaks of woman in slave Bracelets and collars. but over all it is not a smut book it is tastefully written and it holds the reader from start to finish.

    "Rich story, excellent narrative"

    the narrator seems to have a feel for the books. He is not just reading to us, but presenting the story to us with feeling. Well done. I look forward to the next one!

    Story
    "book 2, strong start, cheat ending"

    If your reading this, then you have probably already read book one Tarnsman of Gor, so I don't need to go on about John Norman's world where women are property and that is the way they like it. In this book our hero ends up in a city where women rule, so of course love his illegal. It turns out women secretly want to be slaves to men, even when the men don' want to be there masters. I like to visit used book stores and through the years I kept seeing this series of Gor books, which seem to be very popular in paperback, but never made it to hardback. Was this an underground movement? It helped that the covers usually had scantly clad women on them, usually tied up. If you are a teenage boy, hoping for some sex scenes, forget it. The book is full of women who are naked and the author will usually say something like she was beautiful, but that is the extent of it.

    This story started out strong, I enjoyed the world that JN created and was getting lost in the action. I also found that the author is not a hack, he can write, (I bet he writes more acceptable books under a different name.) Then in chapter fourteen he starts to cheat and that starts to ruin the rest of the story. Our hero is in an arena and is suppose to be devoured by one of the more feared animals on the planet, when low and behold it's just happens to be his Tarn from six years before. The animal not only remembers him, but goes out of it's way to protect and help him escape. Up to this point this was a five star book. The author does redeem himself later in a underground mining captive scene that I liked. Then we get some more really lucky coincidences. Overall I liked this book slightly more then the first and if you haven't read the first, you really don't need to start there. I am hoping the author grows in his abilities in the rest of the series, as I do want to continue with it.

    I've been an Audie Awards judge since 2008. I have enjoyed audiobooks since the days when they were called "Books on Tape".

    Story
    "Not for Femminists..."

    A series of books written as a backlash to the bra burning era of the 70's. Many readers and listeners of this series compare it to Edgar Rice Burroughs, but at the same time, slam this series because of it's bondage theme. Yet they forget that Burroughs' books were of a nudist theme - which was scandalous in it's day too. In this series, most women are on a leash or wearing shackles and are branded as property. But it should be kept in mind that this is just a fantasy novel and it is in no way suggesting that it be a manifesto for a model society.

    In this book, Tarl Cabbot returns to find his home city destroyed. He's a warrior without a city and he finds his way to a city ruled by a woman. Are the tables turned? It's a good story. Slow in some places, but it has some good plot twists.

    Story
    "Too much waffle"
    Would you try another book written by John Norman or narrated by Ralph Lister?

    No. Too much lecturing on the ways and whys of Gor and not enough story telling.


    Has Outlaw of Gor put you off other books in this genre?

    Yes


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    The blokes voice is irritating to me and his range of voices is limited.


    Do you think Outlaw of Gor needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    I know there are many.


    Any additional comments?

    Can't be bothered with all the descriptions of slavery and such. The story itself is ok, when you get it.

    "its gor"
    If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

    this is the book that sadist`s and machosist will enjoy. as well as those who wish slave and master realionship. anyone who is into bdsm and master/slave will like this. thought masters and dominant men more then submissive slaves.
    as a side note all the women are slaves ina historic setting and less realistic settings.


    Has Outlaw of Gor put you off other books in this genre?

    it hassent as i knew what i was getting myself into and this is just one of many books.


    Which character – as performed by Ralph Lister – was your favourite?

    non cant say there are people i like at all in the gor books


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Outlaw of Gor?

    lol the views of woman but thats all.


    Any additional comments?

    not really i said what i wanted to say. if you can get past the bad story and you enjoy this setting its a book for you.
