Additional Information

The Kur race once had a planet of its own, but somehow it was rendered unviable, either destroyed or desolate, apparently by the Kurs’ own hands. So they searched for a new home and found not one but two suitable planets—planets they set their minds to conquering. But these planets, Earth and its sister planet Gor, the Counter Earth, were not undefended. The Kur attempted their conquest four times, only to be beaten back by the mysterious Priest-Kings, rulers of Gor. As the Kurii lurk deep within an asteroid belt, awaiting the chance to seize their prize, their attention is drawn to a human, Tarl Cabot. Tarl was once an agent of Priest-Kings but is now their prisoner, held captive in a secret prison facility. But what is their interest in Tarl Cabot?
 
Rediscover this brilliantly imagined world where men are masters and women live to serve their every desire.
 
Kur of Gor is the 28th book in the Gorean Saga, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.

This is the 28th book in the lengthy "Gorean saga" of SF/Fantasy novels. Up to now these have been set mostly on the planet Gor, which supposedly shares the orbit of Earth but on the opposite side of the sun so that our astronomers cannot detect it.

And at long, long last, after a wait of about 21 years, we finally get the next major installment in Tarl Cabot's story.

Tarl Cabot - presumably pronounced "Cabbo" since he was born in Bristol and apparently related to the famous Bristol family of explorers, and as a former Bristol resident I can confirm that's how that surname is pronounced in Bristol - is the main hero of the series, but this is the first book since 1988 which has concentrated on the story from his perspective.

This book differs from the previous books in the series in two respects: first, it is told in the third person by a narrator who is never identified. Indeed, the narrator speaks of the human race in the third person and I wondered... Read more
Been a LONG time coming. Not only do we have a Tarl Cabot book, but we have a book that focuses on the story and action, rather than on the endless lectures of women really being slaves at heart.

Oh, there is still that ongoing lecture, done both in dialogue and simple musings by the omnipotent 3rd person narrator. But it is only about 1/3 of the book, rather than 3/4 or so as in the later books in the series. If you are like me, and got adept at skimming the page after page of lecture, then you can apply that easily with this book. If you LIKE the lectures, and view the story as an unwanted diversion, well, there is plenty of the slave stuff to chew on. Something for everyone, I guess.

Norman returns to the story of Tarl Cabot, the warrior of a generation, once of Ko Ro Ba, now of Port Kar. Tarl, though Norman never just comes out and says it, is probably the baddest human in existance. He has been through a litany of "trainings" as he visited place after... Read more
This book could be rated in many different ways. I've rated it simply as I enjoyed it, as what it meant for me. 5-stars.

If you're not a John Norman fan, don't want to know about all the history nearly 30 books in a series can provide, the idea of females as slaves turns you off, or simply hate books with words you need to look up (Mr. Norman loves finding/using obscure words) not the book for you.

But, if you like any or all of those things (learning new words alone could recommend this book) then this is a book for you.

I'm not going to spend a lot of time going over history or how I am one of those people who like John Norman's work and have followed it over the last 30 years. I read my first Gor series book back in the mid-eighties when there were just 12 books. I tore through those as fast as money allowed. Once caught up, I followed each release with excitement. Then... a long wait. I'm just glad that wait is over and his old characters,... Read more
