Smugglers of Gor, 32nd Novel In John Norman's Gorean Chronicles, Goes on Sale Today
Monday, October 8
After completing Conspirators of Gor, the 31st novel in his towering Gorean epic, the indefatigable John Norman elected not to take time off between books, for he was burning with a new one. So he put his head down in pursuit of Smugglers of Gor, and we are thrilled to present it to you today.
It will take a short while for the e-book uploads and print edition to make their way to all retailers, so keep your eye on this book page until the buy button for your preferred format goes live.
Norman has approached the challenge of this new work in a unique way, and we'll let him tell you about it in his own words.
This is an unusual book, having to do with alleged events on the alleged world, Gor, the Antichthon, or Counter-Earth, as it seems to have two narrators, or authors, who, as the texts will have it, see, and relate to, certain events, possibly of consequence to the fate of worlds. It may be recalled that the great ship of Tersites, to the best of our knowledge, was the first ship to successfully negotiate Thassa, the sea, in a voyage which led to the World's End, an unusual gaming board on which two, from the human point of view, alien species may be gambling for a world, the pieces being men. In this book, which, in its way, constitutes a prequel to MARINERS OF GOR, we learn that a mysterious cargo, suitably disguised, was covertly placed on the great ship, a cargo which might influence the outcome of the aforementioned gamble, or wager. One narrator is a young woman, once a Miss Margaret Alyssa Cameron, and the other is an individual whose name, for reasons which will become obvious, is withheld in the manuscript. It does seem clear, however, that the individual referred to was somehow instrumental in bringing the former Miss Cameron to the height of a large slave block in the coastal city of Brundisium, one of Gor's major ports.
