Description

Hunters of Gor. ( Chronicles of Counter-Earth - 8 ). John Norman.

Hunters of Gor. Three lovely women were keys to Tarl Cabots career on Gor, Earth's orbital counterpart. They were: Talena, daughter of Gor's greatest ruler and once Tarl's queen. Elizabeth Cardwell, who had been Tarl's comrade in two of his greatest exploits. Verna, haughty chief of the untamed panther women of the Northern Forests. Hunters of Gor finally reveals the fate of these three-as Tarl Cabot ventures into the wilderness to pit his skill and his life against the brutal cunning of Gorean outlaws and enemy warriors

Misconceptions of Gor. By Lemuel of the Builders. As most of you know, there is some controversy over John Norman's Chronicles of Gor series, but is it deserved?

Misconceptions of Gor. As most of you know, there is some controversy over John Norman's Chronicles of Gor series, but is it deserved? The most common accusation we hear is that John Norman is a misogynist who advocates the subjugation, physical abuse, enslavement, and rape of women. Another common complaint is that John Norman's books are poorly written trash with no literary merit whatsoever.

In this tale Tarl Cabot has one of his rare moments of personal ambition. Now a Captain in Port Kar, Bosk, plans on rescuing Telena his first love and onetime companion from Panther Girls. Panther Girls work with agents of Cos to betray Cabot and Marlenus of Ar. Cabot tracks Marlenus' captured hunting party and rescues him collecting a large number of slaves. He and Marlenus are at odds and Marlenus disowns Telena dashing Cabots hopes for a politically advantageous companionship. Some interesting wood craft betrayals. Lots of slave girls - wouldn't be Gor without slave girls.

I started reading the series from the beginning and am progressing through it, just having finished reading the "Hunters of Gor."

The story line was good and answered a few questions about Elizabeth Cardwell and Talena but left me wondering if the was the last we might read of Miss Elizabeth Cardwell of New York.

As has been the case so far, Tarl finds himself in situations that appear to have no way for him to extricate himself from and yet he manages to escape and survive.

I like it though. Granted, the prose is somewhat stiff at times (a characteristic of the novels I've read so far) but I cannot help finding myself caught up in Tarl's adventure and anxious to see how they turn out.

Most of the major characters have been mentioned in the previous books so it is just not Tarl that we learn more about. I think this reappearance of previous characters makes for interesting reading and helps to build an interest for later novels. It left me curious to obtain the next volume in the series to see how Tarl fares upon his return to Port Kar after being grievously wounded.

For the most part I found the book mostly readable and at times rather enjoyable. A good read for fans of the Gor series.

A few years ago I decided to revisit the Gorean Saga. I had read a handful of the early Gor books from the sixties and seventies when I was a teenager, starting with book one and reading them in order. After reading many of the reviews online I purchased ten of the Gorean Saga books. I didn’t read them all back to back so it took me a few years to read them all. I mixed them in with other books I wanted to read. I read a wide variety of stuff each year, everything from nonfiction to westerns. About half of what I read is sci-fi and fantasy, averaging 50-60 books a year.

These are the Gor books I read. After each book I’ve included how many stars I gave the story. Notice how the page count increases as the series goes on. This is not a good thing as I explain below.

Book 1 – Tarnsman of Gor (1966) p166 – 4 stars
Book 2 – Outlaw of Gor (1967) p220 – 2 stars
Book 3 – Priest-Kings of Gor (1968) p328 – 4 stars
Book 4 – Nomads of Gor (1969) p372 – 3 stars
Book 5 – Assassin of Gor (1971) p392 – 5 stars
Book 6 – Raiders of Gor (1971) p332 – 4 stars
I skipped Book 7 because the POV character changes from Tarl Cabot to Elinor Brinton.
Book 8 – Hunters of Gor (1974) p372 – 2 stars
Book 9 – Marauders of Gor (1975) p313 – 3 stars
Book 10 – Tribesman of Gor (1976) p449 – 1 stars
Book 33 – Rebels of Gor (2013) p654 – 2 stars

I found some of the stories good. But many of the books are bloated bores, lectures on the wonderments of female slavery instead of adventure stories. I read for adventure, not boring slave lectures. The stories I rated the highest are the ones with a high adventure to lecture ratio. Most of the books could be cut in half without losing any of the story. I’ll use Book 33, Rebels of Gor, as an example. It’s a 200-300 page adventure wrapped up in a long, repetitious, boring, slave lecture. The same information and dialogue are repeated over, and over, and over, and over, and . . . (Get the idea?)

If I revisit the Gorean Saga I’ll probably only read a few of the books that I found interesting this time around. In the meantime I’ll be spending more time with some of my favorite sci-fi and fantasy writers, Douglas Adams, Isaac Asimov, Paolo Bacigalupi, Ray Bradbury, Orson Scott Card, Jack Campbell, Arthur C. Clarke, Earnest Cline, Suzanne Collins, Abe Evergreen, Diana Gabaldon, Joe Haldeman, Robert A. Heinlein, Hugh Howey, George Martin, Larry Niven, Andre Norton, George Orwell, Patrick Rothfuss, Brandon Sanderson, John Scalzi, J.R.R. Tolkien and Andy Weir.

Starship Troopers (1959) (not like the movie) by Robert A. Heinlein is the book that got me started in sci-fi adventures, and has remained one of my top five favorite military science fiction adventure stories for decades. The Forever War (1974) by Joe Haldeman, Armor (1984) by John Steakley, Ender’s Game (1985) by Orson Scott Card and Old Man’s War (2005) by John Scalzi, round out my top five military sci-fi adventure stories.

I have thoroughly enjoyed the series and how despite being the hero, our main character is still subject to very human flaws

I finally am getting my collection back and love it. Only a few more to get and then enjoy them, this will add to my experience with online Gor and those few friends I've made at Gor Fests.
About female hunters who capture men / woman and sell them into slavery. Maintains the gor culture
