The front cover artwork by Robert Foster was first used in 1966 for the First Printing of the Ballantine Edition of Tarnsman of Gor.
This is the original version of the story of Tarnsman of Gor. In September 2000, in an open letter to Gor fans, entitled "How The Internet Can Change Lives!", John Norman anncounced that electronic publishing had given him the opportunity to revise, enlarge and improve the books, some more than others. As to Tarnsman of Gor, the changes were minimal, and only a few minor typos were corrected. This new enhanced version was first published in paperback format in January, 2001, by New World Publishers (here). However, due to the digital scanning process some new typos were introducted in this enhanced edition. So in June, 2007, E-Reads, Ltd., New York released a newly edited and corrected version of the story (here). The most current version of story of Tarnsman of Gor is the Second Printing of the E-Reads Edition published in March, 2013 (here).
VOLUME 1 - TARNSMAN OF GOR
Here is the magnificent world of Gor, known also as Counter-Earth, a planet as strangely populated, as threatening, as beautiful as any you are likely to encounter in the great works of fiction. We predict that the name of John Norman will one day be known among the top writers of sword and sorcery. This is the beginning. Don't miss it.
