Publisher's Summary

Former Earthman Tarl Cabot is now a powerful Tarnsman of the brutal and caste-bound planet of Gor, also known as Counter-Earth. He embarks on an adventure in the dangerous and mysterious wilderness of Gor, pitting his warrior's skills against treacherous outlaws, bandits, and fighters. Three different women are working to bring change to Tarl's far-from-peaceful life on Gor: Talena, his one-time queen and first love; Elizabeth, his brave fighting partner; and the Amazonian Verna, chief of the fierce and wild panther women. As Tarl journeys through the wilderness, the fates of these three remarkable women will finally be decided.

Coinciding with the 40th anniversary of the first book of the Gorean Saga, Tarnsman of Gor, E-Reads is proud to release the very first complete publication of all Gor books by John Norman, including the long-awaited 26th novel in the saga, Witness of Gor. Many of the original Gor books have been out of print for years, but their popularity has endured.

Some of Norman's Best

Tarl having left the service of priest-kings continues to be a bit of a jerk. In his wandering however he keeps finding his honor even though as a character he thinks he has lost it. I cannot help but think that he has, in his elevated humility, discovered his Humanity again. I think he is closer to accepting it but not yet.

This book contains some of John Norman's worst writing so far in his repeating of ideas and overstating internal dialog. But it also has some of his most brilliant writing...artful conveying of his ideas. It's worth reading.

I can't even finish it.

the main character is a hero no longer. he is perhaps the most vile piece of shit alive. I am ashamed I rooted for him in previous books. I find that I desperately want him to be killed off.
I can really care less about female slavery. in fact I think if it was Well written it could be quite powerful. my main complaint is the main character however. I can except that he was hardened. but when he discovered a previous love, friend and companion in a tavern where girls are treated like absolute crap. not only does he not help her. a girl he claims to have loved. but he raped her left her in her miserable life and to top it off tells her owner she was a trained pleasure slave. enshrined she is raped and used even more than she had been before. I think it's his final act of cruelty toward Elizabeth Caldwell that I find undeserving and quite possibly the most hideous thing he could have done.... "I'm not going to save you. you got yourself in this mess... " I can accept that. but leaving and doing your best to make sure she finds the rest of her miserable life even more torturous is just evil.

No plot

Ralph Lister is the best narrator.
However, this story had no story. It was all about capturing slaves. I couldn't believe how much time was wasted on writing about collars, shackles and enslavement. The End. There was no plot to this boring book!

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.

Series started out well enough, but....

The first few books were well enough for a bit of pulp fantasy, but the author seems to have lost the plot a bit... quite literally.

He repeats the same lines in the book over and over again. I’m all for seeing what happens, but I get that good old Mr Cabot will ‘sell her in port carr’ the first 5 times! (Along with many other examples of doddering about the story).

The good news is, if you nod off on the train while listening to this book, you won’t have missed much... the author will go over the main point again and again.

Aside from that, I’d heard that the Gor series was a bit of a tough read and not all that amazing (play the narrator at 1.5 speed and it’s not that bad). This is the first in the series that makes me believe it. The main character loses any charm he had and the writing is one dimensional at times.

That said, the books before this one in the series are still worth a look for a bit of classic reading, but maybe I’ll skip the rest if they continue like this.
