    1. Librarian Note There is than one author in the GoodReads database with this name See this thread for information John Norman, real name John Lange, was born in Chicago, Illinois in 1931 His best known works, the Gor novels, span 31 books written 1967 to 2012, plus three installments of the Telnarian Histories, two other fiction works and a non fiction paperback Mr Norman is married and has three children.

    2. Tarl Cabot s efforts to free himself from the directive of the mysterious priest kings of Earth s orbital counterpart were confronted by frightening reality when horror from the northland finally struck directly at him.Somewhere in the harsh lands of transplanted Norsemen was the first foothold of alien Others Somewhere up there was one such who waited for Tarl Somewhere up there was Tarl s confrontation with his real destiny was he to remain a rich merchant slaver of Port Kar or become again a [...]

    3. Tarl who has had many names, but is again called Tarl travels to the Viking north to avenge his woman well one of them Along the way we get a lesson in being a Gorean Viking and many many lessons in how you should just rape your women until they start enjoying it.At least a third of this book appears to just be about women aching to be slaves, but that could have just been my perception as I glossed over some of the rambling in the book Other reviews seem to indicate that at least the fight scen [...]

    4. Just when I thought Norman had lost it, he came back with Marauders, which is pretty much tied with Raiders as my second favorite of the series At times it outranks Raiders In this one Tarl runs into counter Earth Vikings and there are some great fight scenes, including one large scale one in particular that I thought was just about the best I d ever read I loved the characters here and the tie in with the Beowulf legend Norman was back on top.Not sexist, at least not much.

    5. I remember liking the Gor series well enough in junior high and high school when I read them but I don t think I would enjoy them as much 25 years later so I will recuse myself from rating any in the series.

    6. Continuing my quest to read and review every Gor book, even if it kills me, here is Marauders of Gor in all its absurdity no spoilers until the obvious spoiler warning.The 2 word review Not good.The 10 word review It has its moments and its charm, but it fails.The long review Mauraders of Gor sees our hero Bosk aka Tarl Cabot, aka Tarl Red Hair, aka Red Hair heading north to Torvaldsland, a very Nordic and Viking like setting in the northern reaches of Gor If you have read the books before this, [...]

    7. In some respects the real hero of the Gor series is the world of Gor itself Many of the books so far this is the 9th in the long series explore the many cultures of the world through the contrivance of having the hero, Tarl Cabot of Earth, join up with a band of folks from a part of Gor we haven t really explored yet, and then in the course of the adventure we along with him uncover the mysteries of this up to now terra incognito Tarl must be an awfully likeable guy since he seems to get along w [...]

    8. 40% in and I just can t do it any There s simply too much slave girl description and not nearly enough story Having got to book number 9 in this ongoing series I almost feel like I m letting myself down by not ploughing on through these slave sections, but then I remind myself that they do tend to be taking up and of the novels, and so I m learning to forgive myself I ll almost certainly read the odd one here and there, if only to reassure myself that I ve made the right decision Its such a s [...]

    9. Tarl Cabot s all butthurt and pouty because of reasons until one of the Others, the bestial alien foes of the Priest Kings, kidnaps one of his honeys for other reasons So now he journeys to the icy north, and its not even remotely veiled Norse allegory, on a mission of bloody vengeance Snugglebunnies ensue Oh, and rape and sexual torture Lots and lots of rape and sexual torture also ensue.The Others are these giant, toothy meatgrinders with wings, so it s a good thing during one of the exciting [...]

    10. I have read the entire series, there simply isn t anything else like it they are decadent and addictive, completely and wholly something everyone should have on their MUST READ list Edgar Rice Burroughs BARSOOM series would be a faint comparison, I suppose but Norman carries his characters to a depth of depravity that is reminiscent of a D s or BDSM fetish fanatics dream At the same time, they are not written in a way as to be entirely sexual, he merely casts about components and subtle subtext [...]

    11. To avenge the supposed death of Telima, and to give the author another thinly veiled Earth culture to write about, Tarl Cabot ventures to the lands of the Vikings, or the men of Torvarldsland, as they are known on Gor.This book takes us back on form, with some wonderful examples of Norman s dry wit, and culminates in a spectacular battle scene that would film well, should any director ever take his life in his hands and defy the feminist lobby to commit it to film.Next stop the desert of the Tah [...]

    12. Wow, these just keep getting worse and worse I think I skimmed at least half this book because I don t care about the description, or the philosophy.Don t read this it s a complete rip off of Beowulf he even makes a reference at the end to Grendel.I did find it amusing, however, that once again Tarl is betrayed by some girl Is it that everyone he loves is weak, or is it that he himself is the one with the flaws that makes him incapable of a relationship

    13. I read this whole series in a marathon session, while stationed in England The depth and volume of the stories is humbling for any writer and I consider this series very influential in my own approach to writing and world building in general generic post for all the books in this series as I am finally getting around to recording my reading list in.

    14. i found this volume to be a rather fun and refreshing Gor adventure People tend to get all critical of the slave girl and the roles of women in it, but its a story of another culture with different views from our own and we all know this So I enjoyed the book and the battles that take place with in where written very well.

    15. It was right around the time I read this book that I began to lose interest in the series even though I read 3 or 4 of the books I kept looking for Norman to explore the Priest Kings I may go back and re read this some 20 years later, though.

    16. Ever read the old John Carter of Mars books Well here is the adult version of a man transported to a savage world Great adventure reads, but not for the faint at heart Very adult material dealing with sex Recommended

    17. This was the first of the series I read I read it for an english project and loved it, I then purchased the previous 8 books and within a month I was all caught up Tarl Cabot is a great character, frightened, brave, flawed humble and proud all at once His actions in Marauders got me hooked.

    18. The best book of the series, with one of the best denouements in the history of fiction What mastery of suspense.

    19. The return of Tarlgood addition to the saga of Tarl Cabot a man battles hardship and his own demons and finds strength again on to the next chapter

    20. A fine read and addition to the counter earth chronicles The battle descriptions were really compelling.

    21. So far, this is my favorite of the Chronicles of Gor Something about the setting of Torvarlsland just click all the right buttons.
