John Norman Conspirators of Gor Chapter One I had not expected to be sold. I suppose very few do. And certainly not on another world. The collar is not uncomfortable. Usually I am not aware it is on me. It is noticeable, of course, when I see my reflection, as, for example, when I wish to adjust it a bit, on my neck, that it may sit more attractively on me. He wishes the lock, for example, to be squarely at the back of my neck. He is clear on that point. It is perhaps the first thing one notes, ...

It sailed over the edge of the world, said another. Listen, he said. And I will tell you a story. For paga, laughed a Merchant. We have heard such stories, said a fellow.

TARNSMAN OF GOR Volume one of the Chronicles of Counter-Earth by John Norman Chapter 1 A Handful of Earth MY NAME Is TARL CABOT. The name is supposed to have been shortened in the fifteenth century from the Italian surname Caboto. As far as I know, however, I have no connection with the Venetian explorer who carried the banner of Henry VII to the New World. Such a connection seems unlikely for a number of reasons, among them the fact that my people were simple tradesmen of Bristol, and uniformly ...

OUTLAW OF GOR Volume two of the Chronicles of Counter-Earth by John Norman A NOTE ON THE MANUSCRIPT My friend, Harrison Smith, a young lawyer of the city, has recently given me a second manuscript, purportedly by the individual Tarl Cabot. It was his desire that I bring this second document, as I did the first, to the attention of a publisher. This time, however, because of the numerous claims and inquiries generated by the first manuscript Tarnsman of Gor pertaining to various matters ranging ...

Flee for your life I saw her eyes wild with fear for a moment above the rep-cloth veil and she had sped past me. She was peasant, barefoot, her garment little more than coarse sacking. She had been carrying a wicker basket containing vulos, domesticated pigeons raised for eggs and meat. Her man, carrying a mattock, was not far behind. Over his left shoulder hung a ...

ASSASSIN OF GOR Volume five of the Chronicles of Counter-Earth by John Norman 1 KUURUS Kuurus, of the Caste of Assassins, crouched on the crest of the small hill, leaning with both hands on the shaft of his spear, looking down into the shallow valley, waiting. He would not yet be welcome. In the distance he could see the white walls, and some of the towers of the city of Ko-ro-ba, which was being rebuilt. It is an old word in Gorean, Ko-ro-ba, meaning a village market, though few considered its ...

RAIDERS OF GOR Volume six of the Chronicles of Counter-Earth by John Norman 1 The Blood Mark I could smell the sea, gleaming Thassa, in the myths said to be without a farther shore. I reached down from the rush craft and took a palm of water into my hand and touched my tongue to it. Thassa could not be far beyond. I took the triangular-bladed tem-wood paddle and moved the small craft, light and narrow, large enough scarcely for one man, ahead. I was formed of pliant, tubular, lengthy Vosk ...

CAPTIVE OF GOR Volume seven in the Chronicles of Counter-Earth by John Norman 1 The Brand The following account is written at the command of my master, Bosk of Port Kar, the great merchant, and, I think, once of the warriors. My name was Elinor Brinton. I had been independently wealthy. There is much I do not understand. Let others find what meaning they can in this narrative. I gather that my story is neither as unique, nor as strange, as it may seem. By the standards of Earth, I was regarded ...

I regarded the board. Carefully, I set the Ubars Tarnsman at Ubars Scribe Six. It is dangerous, said Samos. It is your move, said I, intent upon the game. He threatened the Ubars Tarnsman with a spearman, thrust to his Ubar Four. We do not care to risk you, said Samos. There was a slight smile about his lips. We I ...

MARAUDERS OF GOR Volume nine in the Chronicles of Counter-Earth by John Norman Chapter 1 - THE HALL I sat alone in the great hall, in the darkness, in the Captains Chair. The walls of stone, some five feet in thickness, formed of large blocks, loomed about me. Before me, over the long, heavy table behind which I sat, I could see the large tiles of the hall floor. The table was now dark, and bare. No longer was it set with festive yellow and scarlet cloths, woven in distant Tor: no longer did it ...

The entire floor of the chamber, shining, richly mosaiced, broad, reflecting the torchlight, was a map. I watched the girl. Her knees were slightly bent. Her weight was on her heels, freeing her hips. Her rib cage was lifted, but her shoulders, relaxed, were down. Her abdominal muscles, too were ...

I could feel it, the warm, individual green blades, separate, gentle, on my left cheek I could feel them on my body, my stomach and thighs. I stretched my body, my toes. I was sleepy. I did not wish to awaken. The sun was warm on my back, even hot, almost uncomfortable. I snuggled deeper into the grass. My left hand was extended. My fingers touched the warm dirt between ...

Light from a perforated lamp flickered dimly. The furs were deep and soft. My weapons lay to one side. A slave, sleeping, lay chained at my feet. There was no clue. He might be anywhere, had said Samos. He had shrugged. We know only that somewhere he is among us. We know little about that species of ...

She knelt near the small, low table, behind which, cross-legged, in the hall of Samos, I sat. At this table, too, cross-legged, sat Samos. He faced me. It was early evening in Port Kar, and I had supped with Samos, first captain in the council of captains, that congress of captains sovereign in Port Kar. The hall was lit with burning torches. It contained the great map ...
