Riassunto: For decades the creator of Gor has been writing short pieces and quietly putting them in a drawer. But at last he is ready to go public with them in this wide-ranging story collection. It includes a number of pieces with such Gorean theme as female slavery and submission.?? Many of the stories are philosophical monologues exploring existential and phenomenal ideas and their relation to the real world, abstract dialogues, ruminations and speculations. Some could almost be lectures embodied in narrative form.?? Some stories are science fiction, some horror, and some have "mainstream" settings. Among the characters you'll meet are talking frogs, a couple of independently thinking computers, and a host of philosophers, clinical psychologists and psychiatrists performing analysis on computers or intelligent alien lifeforms and even counseling them.?
John Norman, born in Chicago, Illinois, in 1931, is the creator of the Gorean Saga, the longest-running series of adventure novels in science fiction history. Starting in December 1966 with Tarnsman of Gor, the series was put on hold after its twenty-fifth installment, Magicians of Gor, in 1988, when DAW refused to publish its successor, Witness of Gor. After several unsuccessful attempts to find a trade publishing outlet, the series was brought back into print in 2001. Norman has also produced a separate, three-installment science fiction series, the Telnarian Histories, plus two other fiction works ( Ghost Dance and Time Slave), a nonfiction paperback ( Imaginative Sex), and a collection of thirty short stories, entitled Norman Invasions. The Totems of Abydos was published in spring 2012.
All of Norman?s work is available both in print and as ebooks. The Internet has proven to be a fertile ground for the imagination of Norman?s ever-growing fan base, and at Gor Chronicles (www.gorchronicles.com), a website specially created for his tremendous fan following, one may read everything there is to know about this unique fictional culture.
Norman is married and has three children.
