I am not offended by the idea that it is natural and enjoyable for women to be submissive to men. Although I recognize it as wish fulfillment fantasy, still I consider it harmless, especially in such an obviously fictitious setting. I even found it mildly interesting the first time it was mentioned. It is the umpteenth repetition that I find boring. I just turn those pages, skipping ahead to the next action sequence. Speaking of wish fulfillment, I wish someone would edit the series, and re-publish it without these parts. Maybe Eric Flint could do it? He likes to edit, according to his afterword to "1633" and he's good at it. Of course, if you take the sex out of Gor you get Barsoom, and that story has already been written.
I looked on Amazon to see if there was anything new going on with the series, and there was. It is being reprinted, starting at the beginning, and at least 2 new books seem to be published, or at least in the works. I was disappointed though that Amazon didn't have the whole series listed under one easy to find heading. I guess there are, after all, millions of books and only so many Amazon employees.Read more ›
"Outlaw of Gor" offers a radical reintroduction to the world of Gor. Tarl Cabot is returned to the Counter-Earth seven long years after he left, only to discover that his City-State of Ko-ro-ba has been ordered destroyed by the mysterious Priest-Kings. Just as no two stones of the city are allowed to stand together neither can two citizens of the city. An Initiate, one of those who serves the Priest-Kings, orders Cabot to submit to their will, but he refuses, and heads off across Gor for the Sardar Mountains, the legendary home of the Priest-Kings. Along the way he walks into Tharna, a town ruled by women. The head woman is called the Tatrix and the ruling class of women wear silver masks. The society is sterile and unproductive and although they try to break Cabot to their will, they are not going to have any more success than the Priest-Kings.
For me "Outlaw of Gor" is the weakest of the early Counter-Earth novels, mainly because Cabot's adventures in Tharna are a detour on his war to the Sardar Mountains.Read more ›
This novel, which follows "Tarnsman of Gor" picks up with Cabot back on Earth in New York city. Cabot is greatly anguished at being separated from his city Ko-Ro-Ba, and his Free Companion, Talena of Ar. We get a peek at Cabot's persona, and how unfit he is for life on Earth after his exposure to life on Gor.
Upon his return to Gor, Cabot learns that the mysterious Priest-Kings of Gor have destroyed Ko-Ro-Ba, and decreed that no two men of that city may stand together without risking the wrath of the Priest-Kings.
Cabot sets forth to enter the forbidding Sardar mountains where legend says that the rulers of Gor reside, and demand an accounting of the Priest-Kings as to why his city was destroyed and its inhabitants forced to scatter before the winds. On the way Cabot passes through the city of Tharna, and learns that sometimes you cannot accept things at face value, when he is trapped into the slavery of the silver mines of Tharna.
Cabot eventually escapes, and the novel closes with him making his preparations to enter the Sardar mountains.
