The 14th Gor novel is the first in the Jason Marshall trilogy and like Captive of Gor and Slave Girl of Gor this one is pretty much for the bondage crowd. The perspective is from the viewpoint of a male slave; hence the title of the review. The story begins with 25 year old Jason in a cafe on Earth talking to Beverley Henderson, a classmate he is attracted to but has never dated. After a long and laughably unrealistic conversation about gender relationships, they go outside and are promptly kidnapped to Gor, parted, and enslaved. Jason finds himself the silk slave (i.e., boy toy) of the Lady Florence of Vonda, a city of the Salerian Confederation. After he has been defiled by Lady Melpomene, Lady Florence's archenemy, however, he is demoted to stable slave and makes a name for himself in the "stable bouts"; hence the title of the book. Despite the title it has very little fighting or action of any kind even after war breaks out between the Salerian Confederation and the city-state of Ar. Furthermore, the writing is self-indulgent to a fault. In one scene Jason is dragging a female prisoner behind him down a pitch black tunnel trying to escape from 4 trained warriors of Ar armed with swords. Jason also has a sword but no training with it and is aware that he has no chance whatsoever against them. Even though he can hear the soldiers searching for them, he nevertheless throws her to the ground and rapes her, no doubt to demonstrate his dominance and full Gorean "manhood" since they had had copious sex just prior to the escape scene. (It took Tarl Cabot 8 volumes to achieve this---it's not until he overcomes his paralytic conversion reaction in the opening chapter of Volume 9, Marauders of Gor, that he is fully Gorean---but Jason does it in less than one!Read more ›

John Norman, in his usual fashion has produced another in the GOR series of his special brand of Science Fiction. The good guys are bigger than life, The bad guys really put up a good fight, mix in john's brand of dry humor (overlook the long tirads about female slavery) and you have a slam bang welcome mam evening of good excapest writing. Read this one and you will either burn the book, or go out and look in your favorite used book store for all 24 issues in the series (yes i have them all) John has more written, but can't get published in this politically correct world we liv

An interesting read, especially for the ladies, in that they for once get to enjoy the pleasures of a male slave at their service.
For that alone Fighting Slave stands out from the other books in the Gor series.

I first found this book while in high school and was completely absorbed in the story. I was determined to read all the Gor books because of it...but have found it difficult because they are not readily available. It seems that John Norman was visualizing the typical Earth man of the last decade with the emphasis (and I believe OVER EMPHASIS) on "political correctness" and desexualizing human behavior. "Jason" is every bit the 90's type unisexually-seeming male but naturally and fortunately becomes the man he always wanted and feared to be.
