The history of the Digital E-Reads Edition is still somewhat clouded with uncertainty. The birth of a new publication medium was a time of fast decisions, and quick and dirty solutions. With a multitude of new formats, REB1100, Palm Pilot, Win CE, Pocket PC, Franklin eBookMan, Adobe Reader and Microsoft Reader, to name a few, and many new players on the field, the Gor series appeared with several different cover designs, and without any reference to the commonly used ISBN coding system.
During the last seven month of 2000, the first ten Gor volumes, newly enhanced, were temporarily published online at www.bookface.com, readable after a mere registration of email address and country, and semingly reprinted by arrangement with E-Rights/E-Reads. Each volume started with a new foreword by John Norman, available in our Articles Section (here).
On May 9, 2001, E-Reads and Fictionwise announced that they had formed a strategic relationship. Fictionwise, a top-selling web publisher and retailer, launched by founders Steve and Scott Pendergrast in June 2000, become E-Reads's prefered distributor. In July, 2001, Tarnsman of Gor was released, followed in August by Outlaw of Gor and in September by Priest-Kings of Gor and Nomads of Gor. In February, 2002, E-Reads released Assassin of Gor, Raiders of Gor, Captive of Gor and Hunters of Gor, in May Marauders of Gor, in June Tribesmen of Gor and Slave Girl of Gor, in July Beasts of Gor and Explorers of Gor, and in September, 2002, Fighting Slave of Gor, Rogue of Gor, and Guardsman of Gor.
The remainder of Gor series, Savages of Gor through Witness of Gor, was released in January, 2007. Reprints of John Norman's non-fiction work, Imaginative Sex; his Telnarian Histories, consisting of The Chieftain, The Captain and The King were published in eBook form in May, 2007, followed by Prize of Gor in November, 2008.
