Volume I, Tarnsman of Gor: The Hidden World: Earth could never know of Gor, the world always on the opposite side of the Sun. But Gor somehow knew about Earth, as Tarl Cabot soon discovered. Taken by force to that savage world, Cabot was forced to become a tarnsman - a warrior who could control the Great War birds of Ko-ro-ba. Gor was a world of slaves and beautiful women, of human domination by the alien, secret Priest-Kings. And it was also the world of Talena, tempestuous daughter of the greatest warlord of Gor. She waited for the man who could subdue her-the man who would be her master. But was Tarl Cabot that man?

Volume II, Outlaw of Gor: In which Tarl Cabot, fighting tarnsman of Gor and proud warrior of Ko-ro-ba, finds his home city razed, his wife and family scattered, possibly destroyed by the dreaded flame death of the Priest-Kings or Sardar and Tarl himself declared outlaw!

Volume III, Priest-Kings of Gor: Once Tarl Cabot had been the mightiest warrior of Gor, the strange world of Counter-Earth. But now on all the planet he had no friends except the tarn, the mighty bird on which he flew. He was an outcast, with every hand against him, His home city had been destroyed, his loved ones scattered or killed. And that was at the orders of the Priest-Kings, those mysterious beings who ruled absolutely over Gor. No man had ever seen a Priest-King. They were said to dwell somewhere in the Mountains of Sardar. And none who entered that forbidden land ever returned alive. Nonetheless, Tarl Cabot headed into the Mountains of Sardar!

Volume IV, Nomads of Gor: Far south of the Sardar Mountains Tarl Cabot pursues his mission for the Priest Kings of Gor. He must find their last precious link to survival. All Tarl knows is that it is hidden somewhere among the teeming hordes of the savage Wagon People and that he might well be inviting death to ask for it directly.

Volume V, Assassin of Gor: The Trail of Vengance. Kuurus was one of the dreaded Caste of Assassins of the hidden world of Counter-Earth. He was hired for twenty pieces of gold to avenge the death of a warrior. Now he was on his way to the great city of Ar, where he was forbidden by ancient sentence of death ever to appear again. He knew nothing of his intended victim, save that the man had taken part in the savage tarn races at the Arena of Ar. And all he knew of the man he was to avenge was a name. The name was that of Tarl Cabot, the great warrior and servant of the all-powerful Priest Kings. And that was strange. Because the true name of Kuurus was Tarl Cabot!

Volume VI, Raiders of Gor: Tarl Cabot makes his way to Port Kar, sinkhole of Gor, home to every outlaw and pirate on the planet - Port Kar, crowded, squalid, malignant, preying on the ships that sailed the beautiful Sea of Thassa. To such a city came Tarl Cabot.

Volume VII, Captive of Gor: Abduction from Space! Spoiled, rich young Elinor Brinton was no longer on Earth. She had been kidnapped from her New York apartment and carried across space to Gor by alien slavers. Then the ship was wrecked and she was stranded on the strange world of Counter-Earth, where women were only property, to be beaten and subjugated at the will of the men who were their Masters. Life to her became a never-ending nightmare. In the great luxury city of Ko-ro-ba, she was trained in the provocative skills of a pleasure slave. In the Northern Forests of Gor, she was captured by the fierce outlaw Panther Girls. And finally came Rask of Treve to teach her what all women should learn!

Volume VIII, Hunters of Gor: Three lovely women were keys to Tarl Cabot's 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.

Volume IX, Marauders of Gor: 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 the 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 defender of two worlds against cosmic enslavement.

Volume X, Tribesmen of Gor: The Others were on the move! The Priest-Kings had received a message: "Surrender Gor." The date had been set for conquest or destruction. Tarl Cabot could no longer linger in Port Kar - now he must act on behalf of the Priest-Kings, on behalf of Gor, and on behalf of Gor's teeming, unsuspecting, twin world known as Earth. Evidence pointed to the great wasteland of the Tahari, the desert known only to the clannish, militant tribes of desert-wanderers. There must Cabot go. There among the feuds, along the trails of slavers, beyond the forbidding salt mines to a rendezvous with treachery, with a woman warlord, with a bandit chief, and with the monster intelligence's from the worlds of steel.

Volume XI, Slave Girl of Gor: Tarl Cabot had resumed his allegiance to the Priest-Kings, the non-human but benevolent rulers of Earth's orbital twin planet, Gor. And accordingly Tarl knew that the battle for the possession of the planet was under way - the Kurii, the beastlike invaders, had made their plans. There was a girl, once Judy Thornton of Earth, found in the wilderness of Gor. Captured, as such lovely strangers were on that ruthless world, she was to undergo the training that would make her a slave girl of great value. But unknown to her captors was the fact that she was a tool of the Kurii, that she carried a programmed message that imperilled the future of Gor.

Volume XII, Beasts of Gor: On Gor, the other world in Earth's orbit, the term beast can mean any of three things: First, there are the Kurii, the monsters from space who are about to invade that world. Second, there are the Gorean warriors, men whose fighting ferocity is incomparable. Third, there are the slave girls, who are both beasts of burden and objects of desire. All three kinds of beasts come into action in this thrilling novel as the Kurii establish their first beachhead on Gor's polar cap. Here is a John Norman epic that takes Tarl Cabot from the canals fo Port Kar to the taverns of Lydius, the tents of the Sardar Fair, and to a grand climax among the red hunders of the Arctic ice pack.

Volume XIII, Explorers of Gor: All the glorious panorama of Earth's planetary twin, barbaric Gor, is present in John Norman's latest novel. When the shield ring of the much feared Kurii falls into the possession of a mysterious black explorer, it becomes vital to the Priest-Kings that Tarl Cabot himself regain that ancient product of alien science. His quest brings him to the unmapped interior of the great equatorial rain-forests and into new dangers without parallel. Here are jungle kingdoms and tropical trade cities, fierce beasts and fiercer men. And at the heart of this full-bodied Gorean novel is a lost city - and a linkage of the lovliest enemy agents ever lured from the cities of far-off Terra.

Volume XIV, Fighting Slave of Gor: Attempting to save his girl friend from a Gorean slave trap, Jason Marshall found himself kidnapped to that legendary counter-Earth planet. And as such found himself the first "civilized" Earth male to become enslaved in the ruthless chains of Gorean society. Jason Marshall's startling adventures make constantly fascinating reading as he is made to be the slave of a haughty woman, then into her fighting champion, and finally amid the turmoil of primitive warfare to seek his liberty in order to search for his lost love amid the slave marts of that alien and turbulent planet.

Volume XV, Rogue of Gor: Jason Marshall learned the meaning of manhood and the power of women, both dominant and submissive, when he was kidnapped from Earth to the Counter-Earth called Gor. Winning his freedom, Jason set out single-handed to win his own place on that gloriously barbaric world on the other side of the sun. His intent was to find the girl who had been enslaved with him. But that quest thrust him smack in the middle of the war that raged between Imperial Ar and the Salerian Confederation - and the secret schemes of the pirate armada that sought control of the mighty trading artery of the fighting cities.

Volume XVI, Guardsman of Gor: From kidnapped collegian to a woman's slave, from landless fugitive to warrior-captain, the life of Jason Marshall on Earth's orbital twin was a constant struggle against the naked power and barbaric traditions of glorious Gor. Now, in the heat of a desperate naval battle against overwhelming odds, Jason faced the pivotal hous of his Gorean career. For him victory would mean a homeland, a warrior's honors, and the lovely Earthgirl who was the prize he had long sought. Defeat would mean degradation worse than the chains he had once escaped.

Volume XVII, Savages of Gor: The Kur came to Port Kar. Two of the terrible space beasts came to make Tarl Cabot an offer. They, a death-squad, sought the renegade Kur commander, the great Half-Ear, whom Tarl had once battled in the Far North. But Tarl refused their offer, for Half-Ear was more valuable to the Priest-Kings alive than to the Kur dead. And now he knew it was imperative for him to save that monster from the doom that would fast overtake him. This meant venturing into the forbidden Barrens of Gor -- a vast land of plains and prairies whose cruel masters were tribes of savage red riders and where civilized men were always prey and their women mere trophies of the hunt.

Volume XVIII, Blood Brothers of Gor: Tarl Cabot, seeking the monsters from the Steel Worlds, found himself among the cruel savages who ruled the vast Barrens. Though himself enslaved, he stood with his comrades and masters against a coming onslaught. For the Kur had united the enemies of the tribe that held Cabot, and death and destruction were unleashed. Out of the plains came riding hordes of feud-driven braves, from the skies cam a host of maddened tarn-riders, and even among the slave girls held by the blood brothers there was devilish treason.

Volume XIX, Kajira of Gor: Kajira means slave-girl in Gorean. But when Tiffany Collins was kidnapped from Earth and brought to that orbital counter-world, she found herself on the throne of a mighty city as its "queen." Power seemingly was hers, and she did not realize that her true role was that of a slave puppet of a conniving woman agent of the monstrous Kurii. But a chained slave she was destined to be, and in the course of the complex, visible and invisible, struggles between warriors and cities, between Kurii and Priest-Kings, she would play a pivotal role.

Volume XX, Players of Gor: During the holiday revels of Port Kar, an attempt is made on the life of Tarl Cabot. And Tarl discovers that the Priest-Kings have turned against him! To clear himself of their charge of treason, he must follow the assassin's trail. The way to achieve that was to join, in disguise, a troupe of travelling Players, a sort of Gorean carnival, which would give him entry to enemy cities and hostile territories. But life in such a carnival is always a risk in itself. There are monsters in form and monsters in mind among them - and there may be spies of the alien Kurs and the omnipotent Priest-Kings.

Volume XXI, Mercenaries of Gor: War on Gor is a rousing and fearful affair - and when the armada of Cos landed and began its sweeping arch against the mighty city of Ar, Tarl Cabot was swept up in their drive. Outcast from Port Kar, rejected by the Priest Kings, Tarl fought now for his own redemption. With comrades at his side, barbarian warriors and daring women, free and slave, his plans went forward - until the mercenaries of Deitrich of Tarnburg disrupted the struggle as a mysterious third force.

Volume XXII, Dancer of Gor: Doreen Williamson appeared to be a quiet shy librarian, but in the dark of the library, after hours, she would practive, semi-nude, her secret studies in belly-dancing. Until, one fateful night, the slavers from Gor kidnapped her. On that barbarically splendid counter-Earth, Doreen drew a high price as a dancer in taverns, in slave collar and ankle bells. Until each of her owners became aware that their prize dancer was the target of powerful forces - that in the tense climate of the ongoing war between Ar and Cos, two mighty empires, Doreen was too dangerous to keep.

Volume XXIII, Renegades of Gor: As the bloody tide of war spread over Gor, Tarl Cabot, outcast by the Priest-Kings, became deeply enmeshed in the military combat between the empire of Ar and the invaders from Cos. His fate would depend upon which proved victorious in the coming confrontation at Ar's besieged river port. And it looked like Tarl himself might prove the deciding factor that would tip the scales of destiny for one side or the other.

Volume XXIV, Vagabonds of Gor: As treachery and betrayal become the prime weapons in the war between Ar and Cos, Tarl Cabot is trapped in the siege of Ar's Station. And when Ar's Station falls to the warriors of Cos, it is only with the aid of the loyal Vosk League, that Tarl and other survivors make their escape from the defeated port. But with the forces of Cos now readying to continue on their devastating march of conquest, Tarl must go undercover as a spy within the enemy camp, hoping to discover their plans and send word to Ar's army before it is too late... In Vagabonds of Gor, Tarl Cabot faces perhaps his greatest challenge of all, as he is caught up in the myriad dangers and intrigue of two mighty powers at war!

Volume XXV, Magicians of Gor: With the capital city of Ar under the sway of the beautiful traitress Talena, a ruler placed in power by the Cosian invaders, Tarl Cabot and the Delta Brigade, the members of the underground force sworn to defeat Cos, must call upon the unique talents of master magician Boots Tarsk-Bit to recapture the precious Home Stone of the vanquished Ar's Station. For snatching the Home Stone from the enemy's grasp may prove the vital ingredient in Tarl's desperate and dangerous campaign to rouse the people of Ar to fight on to regain their freedom from the hated foe.

Volume XXVI, Witness of Gor: Deep within the cells of Treve, a glorious and mysterious city at the center of Gor's struggle for supremacy, awakens a nameless slave girl who will witness events about which others will only dare whisper. Abducted from Earth and dubbed Janice by her owners, this lovely girl learns the art of obedience and the erotic life that is required of a slave girl while watching the world of Gor tremble with its inner conflict.
