    Is the 12th in John Norman s destined never to end cavalcade of sword and planet cum BDSM novels, the Chronicles of Gor, which means it immediately follows the irremediable Slave Girl of Gor that

the Chronicles of Gor, which means it immediately follows the irremediable Slave Girl of Gor that I have already derided on here.Now, when someone suggested I trash the Gorean novels on here, this one didn t immediately spring to mind as being particularly horrific Not compared to its predecessor, which is narrated by a Chained Naked Slave Girl who gets well used every verse end, and not compared to Kajira of Gor, which I summed up using the quote, Lie there and juice Waste no time about it I recall it as being rather pants but solely because it was rambling and incoherent Then I re read it It was still rambling and incoherent, but either my mind was playing tricks on me back then, or I completely blocked out the shotgun blasts of horror that rear their head every few pages As I said before when reviewing Slave Girl, this was written at the time when Gor was in transition in its core audience from your friendly local basement dwellers to your friendly local BDSM enthusiasts However, it is still from the viewpoint of designated Mary Sue protagonist Tarl Cabot.Right, I suppose I d best give you an executive summary, then.Executive SummaryEskimos, bondage, and intergalactic gorilla panthers, oh my A bitdetail, if you wouldn t mind It all starts when Tarl Studmuffin Cabot, who is now a rich political power in the world of Gor, undergoes an assassination attempt by a frenzied sleen Gor, incidentally, suffers horribly from call a rabbit a smeerp and as such a sleen is sort of a Gorean dog equivalent but has six legs Anyhow He wonders how he could have been tracked, given his security is in tip top condition, upon where he suspects one of his chained naked slave girls Elizabeth Cardwell Gorean readers will, of course, be familiar with this person she s been a major character for the past 8 novels and there is a theory amongst the fandom that she is based on an old girlfriend of John Norman s because she starts out as a heroine in her own right as well as a love interest, but then, around volume 8, when the relationship was going south, increasingly unpleasant things begin to happen to her, and or she goes over to the Bad Guys He suspects she knows something, so he summons her to the furs for a sexual interrogation.Yes, this is what it sounds like.So once he s fucked the truth out of her yes, seriously, he s so fucking manly is our Tarl that his prick acts as a lie detector , he casts her out and she s never seen again I am truly gratified that the author is responsible enough to dispense sound relationship advice in his works.Anyhow, off Tarl Cabot goes to the Sardar Mountains where he meets a contact at a neutral zone therein and watched a game of chess, sorry, Kaissa That s Gorean chess which is like normal chess but has 21 pieces each, is on a 10x10 board, and the pieces are a mixture of orthodox and fairy chess pieces It s the big game between Scormus of Ar aka Bobby Fischer and Qualius of Cos aka Tigran Petrosian Kaissa is really serious business because when the crowd see Qualius make unorthodox moves which sacrifice loads of his pieces they think he s been bribed to lose and are ready to lynch him then all of a sudden, Scormus announces he s irretrievably lost because all the sacrifices were misdirections and he s left himself wide open Needless to say, fascinating as this interaction is, there is no reason for it to be in the novel and in no way is the plot advanced.So, his contact meets him and mentions something unusual in the land of the Red Hunters They re Inuit to you and I Apparently they re in trouble because the herds of tabuk, sorry, reindeer, haven t come along their usual migratory paths this year and they re in danger of starving to death There s also word that this is the doing of the Kurii They re the big bads of Gor, ten foot tall alien gorilla panthers who want to conquer the solar system and have agents working to that effort, but they can t move against the Priest Kings eight brained hyperintelligent praying mantises who protect it and all life in it for various thinly justified reasons While all this is going on, a fresh shipment of women of Earth arrives in the local slave market and they are confronted with the reality of the situation that they are women of Earth and now on Gor and they know what that means One of them does but the other falls into flat denial and pleads, That is only in stories Wrong They re taken off for training, which is described in unnecessary detail, and results in them being really quite content with being a Chained Naked Slave Girl in service to a strict master Yay.So off Tarl goes on a boat to the land of the Red Hunters.What follows now is a mixture of anthropology porn and just plain porn Tarl Cabot finds that the Red Hunters, despite living in a remote and inhospitable area of Gor, which is very rarely contacted by people from other areas, practice slavery in the same manner as the civilised lands of Ar and Turia and Cos and Ko ro ba and Schendi and Torvaldsland and similar Right down to having the same practices of ritualistic collaring of women and having them kneel in the position of the Pleasure Slave If you want to know how to do this, consult Google or better still, Second Life, which is full of Goreans for reasons I do not understand Tarl fits in to this society absolutely perfectly, because he s a big Mary Sue, and befriends a Red Hunter called Imnak There s then plenty tedious scenes of them hunting seals together and building igloos and a huge infodump about their culture and traditions, which is probably lifted from a book with a name like 101 Fascinating Things About The Inuit or similar I m sorry, but no The ritualistic pleasure slavery and Total Power Exchange BDSM that the rest of Gor indulges in doesn t really work here Nobody fantasises about sneaking into the womens igloo like they do a harem or seraglio But it still is chucked in Anyhow We then discover the reason why the tabuk aren t migrating someone, probably the Kurii, has built a huge wall across the tundra to keep them out of the Red Hunters land and thus starve them out to make room to land a big Kurii invasion force.Fhat the wuck.Given the Kurii have interplanetary space travel and nuclear fission, why don t they just nuke them from orbit or something, I don t know.Anyhow, Tarl reckons something is up and he decides to venture to the Wall Where he is captured by a bunch of sinister warriors led by a woman of Earth named Sidney Anderson She is an engineer by trade and was brought in by the Kurii to build the wall.Fhat the wuck.Why would they enlist a person of Earth to do this and thus spend 193 million miles worth of rocket fuel when they could just enlist a Gorean from the Caste of Builders to do it, especially given that there are Kurii agents recruited from the native Gorean population, I don t know.Well, Tarl Cabot is made a slave and forced to work on the wall, but not before ominously telling Sidney Anderson he will one day enslave her, give her a properly feminine name, and make her understand her femininity The prospect of this both terrifies her as she is a virgin, we are told and at the same time causes her to crack a moistie For this, Tarl is assigned to the chain gang under the supervision of two of Sidney Anderson s own female slaves, which she believes he will find a humiliation and thus not bother trying to escape.Wrong He escapes, along with Imnak, the slave labourers on the wall all are set free, and Tarl captures Sidney Anderson, renames her to Arlene, and gives her a seeing to as promised And as before, Tarl Cabot is so utterly manly that she turns her coat and joins his side Yep That s right Tarl Cabot s prick can also act as a recruitment consultant Yay.More pointless infodumping about the customs of the Red Hunters occurs Apparently the women of the Red Hunters wear fur bikinis normally, yet amazingly don t freeze to death Ain t life glorious.Anyhow, we eventually reach the Big Bad s base He s a Kur named Zarendargar and he s built a super secret base built into the side of a mountain Tarl infiltrates it, with Imnak and Sidney Arlene Anderson in tow, and meets Zarendargar, who s responsible for all the late unpleasantness that s been happening to the Red Hunters The Kur are twelve foot tall gorilla panther type creatures who are prone to violence and whose racial hat, if you will, is Social Darwinism So, we re all ready for the Big Fight, aren t we No we aren t We re treated to another fucking infodump, this time about Kurii society and culture They re standard Social Darwinist aliens Then we re told about their reproductive cycle Basically, it s like this They have four genders dominant, nondominant, egg carrier, and blood nurser Nondominants are sterile Dominants fertilise egg carriers, who lay eggs The eggs are then put into blood nursers, which are globular masses of flesh and fur with no face and no limbs and which attach themselves to walls and floors, but which are sentient Then the infant Kur is born In the words of Zarendargar, These fasten themselves to hard surfaces, rather like dark, globular anemones The egg develops inside the body of the blood nurser and, some months later, it tears its way free This is fatal to the blood nurser.Fhat the wuck.Apart from being completely irrelevant, have you spotted the evolutionary flaw in this plan Yes, that s right where do the blood nursers come from Tarl asks this, but it is simply hand waved as being that there are lots of blood nursers about.It s like John Norman thought, what s the squickiest yet strangely kinkiest way I can have a social Darwinist species reproduce Aha Chest bursting Anyhow, Tarl Cabot and Imnak then proceed to battle their way through the complex with the assistance of various chained naked slave girls kept in the complex who are so won over by Tarl Cabot s irrepressible manliness that they tell him all the secret entry codes and things , set the main reactor to explode, and bugger off, gathering up the former Sidney Anderson and a few other slave girls in the process, and bugger off home with a nice nuclear blast at the end.Thank fuck that s over with.Oh, and every so often, throughout the novel, Tarl Cabot goes into constantly repeated walls of text as to how awesome the Gorean institute of slavery is and how brilliant it is for gender relations and how suited to slavery women of Earth are and sideswiping feminism every so often I am glad to see the War on Straw is still alive and well.Well, I suppose I should give you an excerpt from one of the interminable scenes in which Tarl Cabot gives one of his many chained naked slave girls a good seeing to Fine Dinner is served There is something nice about having a girl lying naked in your arms, who wears bondage strings on her throat I have waited long for your touch, Master, whispered Thistle, who had once been the rich Audrey Brewster I caressed the side of her face She looked up at me She was worth having I had won her use in the bone gambling, her use as complete slave, until I chose to leave the tent The hunt had gone well Imnak and I had brought down four tabuk Poalu, whom Imnak, with my consent, had made first girl, and the other girls, had followed us Poalu had showed them how to cut the meat and lay it out on stones to dry All now slept in the tent, save Thistle and myself You were once Audrey Brewster, I said Yes, Master, she said For purposes of my use of you, I said, for I have full rights over you, I shall name you, for the tenure of my ownership of you, Audrey Thank you, Master, she said But you wear the name now, I said, not as a free name, but as a slave name I choose to put on you Oh, she said Do you object I asked No, Master, she said I am Audrey, your slave She clutched me Why have you made me wait so long she asked It pleased me, I said Oh yes There s also a wonderful display of the slave orgasm shortly thereafter This is where the chained naked slave girl comes at the mere thought of being enslaved and branded In the book s words Suddenly she clutched me Oh, oh, she cried It is the thought of being branded, she whispered, intensely Please, Master, hold me, hold me Her thighs were clenched fiercely I am going into orgasm, she cried out, frightened I held her, as she gasped and wept in my arms I had not even entered her, or touched her intimately She looked up at me, tears in her eyes Angrily I thrust apart her legs Forgive me, Master, she wept It was the thought of being branded The rest, as they say, is silence Only it isn t because there s another 20 of the buggers after this interminable, bloated, plot hole ridden, creephatted volume liver

    This could have been good, if only 2 3 of the book was not there The story, if Norman ever stuck to it, could be fun, but he spends 75%of the time dogmatising about the virtues of female slavery and the joys of being a girl slave, while we have to look for the story line with a magnifying glass The adventure could have been jolly if every second sentence was not trying to convince us that we really, really want to be slaves and that is all us women are good for Now, I have nothing against This could have been good, if only 2 3 of the book was not there The story, if Norman ever stuck to it, could be fun, but he spends 75%of the time dogmatising about the virtues of female slavery and the joys of being a girl slave, while we have to look for the story line with a magnifying glass The adventure could have been jolly if every second sentence was not trying to convince us that we really, really want to be slaves and that is all us women are good for Now, I have nothing against the expression of this concept, but I do not need to be indoctrinated in the same way ever since book 4, over and over again Yes, I got that he thinks a woman should be collard and on her knees in order to be pleasing to a man, but how many times are you going to repeat it, and rarely in a different manner Of the close to 5oo pages, this story should have been 200 and then it could have been palatable Stop it already and lets go on with the main plot, if any of us remember what that was I think there were Priest Kings maybe, or were they chained naked in the cellar I am not sure any

    no spoilers I gave this book three stars, but only because half stars aren t possible, in which case I would have given it two and a half In terms of enjoyability, readability, and quality I would put this book squarely between Marauders of Gor 9 , which I gave two stars, and Tribesmen of Gor 10 , which I gave three.The basic plot of Beasts of Gor is solid and worthy of the series This time we have our hero, Tarl, making his way northward to the polar regions of Gor to fight the Kurii ak no spoilers I gave this book three stars, but only because half stars aren t possible, in which case I would have given it two and a half In terms of enjoyability, readability, and quality I would put this book squarely between Marauders of Gor 9 , which I gave two stars, and Tribesmen of Gor 10 , which I gave three.The basic plot of Beasts of Gor is solid and worthy of the series This time we have our hero, Tarl, making his way northward to the polar regions of Gor to fight the Kurii aka the Others , the mortal enemies of the Priest Kings All the makings of a good Gor book are present adventure, assassins, hot chicks, an interesting supporting cast, epic battles, andhot chicks As with most books in the series, we are introduced to another parallel earth culture, this time the Inuits This is done well with excellent characters and descriptions of Inuit like traditions and culture In particular the character Imnak is very well done he is the Hassan or Ivan Forkbeard of this story The dialog between Tarl and Imnak is quite entertaining, sometimes comedic to excellent effect, other times very thoughtful, and consistently well done.What works well for Beasts of Gor is that it s an adventure story which is one of the best aspects of the series overall Tarl is on a mission, but he doesn t know where he s going or what he s looking for he s sort of just wandering, looking for clues, making friends and enemies, tracking down the Kurii, raping women a lot , murdering those who dare challenge him, and being a decidedly Gorean male This all works well to convey the sense of Gorean adventure that marks the best of the series.What doesn t work well for Beasts of Gor as usual , is the incessant, nauseating, seemingly endless dissertations into BDSM, female submission, and male dominance It is not an exaggeration to say that at least one third of the book can be completely skipped with no loss to the story Entire chapters are devoted to philosophical discussion of a woman s place, which is invariably slavery and submission Putting aside that Norman s presentation of this natural order is wildly extreme, we just don t need the constant rehashing of the same topic from book to book After eleven previous books on the subject, we get it I mean we really get it women are natural slaves, they love it, they crave it, they only respect a man who will beat them into submission, and of course rape, rape, rapity rape rapey rape We ve had this theme beaten to death for eleven books already we get it At this point in the series Norman should simply be using the background he s already provided, not rehashing it as if we ve never read it before The parts of the story where Norman simply uses the BDSM themes he s already provided for past eleven books instead of re introducing them from scratch again and again are actually decent and flow very well However, the constant side trips to re introduce and re describe BDSM almost kills the book At this point it s not important whether or not you agree with Norman s presentation of men and women If you are twelve books into the series, and you survived Slave Girl of Gor, you either like this theme or you at least don t object to it The one thing none of us need by book twelve is to have it all re described as if we ve never read it before.To be clear, it s not the presentation of extremist dominance and submission that is objectionable Norman s point is clear, he s not necessarily being literal, he s using extremism to explore a taboo topic and make you think What s objectionable is presenting that topic over, and over, and over with the same words, in the same way, incessantly As clever as Norman can be in other regards, in everything from how to tie a knot to how to wage epic sea battles, why he has to be so obtuse with BDSM escapes me Norman s presentation of BDSM and women is the literary equivalent of threading a needle with a sledge hammer.Putting BDSM aside, one thing particularly new and interesting was the description of the Kurii sexes, of which there are four, and Norman is making obvious allusions to the spectrum of human sexuality Usually when Norman presents humans directly, they are simply binary dominant males and submissive females Any human not conforming to this dichotomy is invariably described as miserable and only free when they give in to their natural place However when describing Kurii, Norman is obviously drawing parallels to humans in many regards, including sexuality, and in this regard Norman describes four Kurii sexes which form afluid spectrum It felt as if this was Norman s way of saying, men are dominant, women are submissive mostly sort of but there are exceptions There is a parallel in this to what Norman occasionally alludes to as four human sexes as well the Gorean male, the Gorean female, the Earth Male, and the Earth female This added an interesting element finally to what is otherwise a very tired discussion in most Gor books.Speaking of Kurii, the Kurii are very obviously generally analogous to humans, and exploring their culture and development is exploring humanity by proxy This was evident as far back as book three when Misk a Priest King explains that Priest Kings see humans and Kurii as indistinguishable, despite the fact one is a small, primitive, hairless ape, and the other is a 900 pound, hairy, space faring wolf gorilla To the Priest Kings, both are just beasts This bring us to one of the main points of this story, men and Kurii are both beasts with equal potential for good and bad In that regard it s hard to see the Kurii as the bad guys How much this plays out one way or the other has yet to be determined but for this book it was a very welcome new dimension to the series.If you take out the long, drawn out trips into BDSM Beasts of Gor is a respectable Gor book Some of the chapters such as the conversations with Zarendargar the lead Kur , the interactions between Tarl and Imnak, and the last few chapters of action adventure are quite enjoyable Unfortunately the BDSM side trips are almost unbearable However, when Norman simply lightly weaves the BDSM elements into the story and doesn t harp on them, it works surprising well.I d like to say Beasts of Gor is a full three stars for a Gor book but when comparing to other books in the series with very similar plot lines, Tribesmen of Gor was better, and Nomads of Gor was way better.Beasts of Gor is worth a read just skip the annoying parts if that s not your thing

    I gave this 4 stars because I think I am finally learning the way to read the Gor books.To anyone not familiar, the Gor books are about 20 25 % story, and about 75 80 % needless description of things that dont exist doctrine on how ALL women are slaves at heart if there was just a man strong enough to beat them into submissive figuratively literally.This books story was better than most, it really has Tarl going all over the place and doing all kinds of things we havent seen him do I gave this 4 stars because I think I am finally learning the way to read the Gor books.To anyone not familiar, the Gor books are about 20 25 % story, and about 75 80 % needless description of things that dont exist doctrine on how ALL women are slaves at heart if there was just a man strong enough to beat them into submissive figuratively literally.This books story was better than most, it really has Tarl going all over the place and doing all kinds of things we havent seen him do before I enjoyed the meandering of the voyage in this book It didnt seem too wandering, though there were plenty of changes of scenery It didnt feel rushed to a conclusion.This books doctrine was as bad as it gets, although, mostly delivered with a wink and a smile The raped slaves cry out for , not for the rape to stop The firm master only backhands his slave when he is trying to save her Tarl spendtime talking captured women into loving their bondage than defeating Kurii or collaborators, and almost as much time given overly in depth descriptions of mundane Gorean items that just isnt interesting Yes, I have read the preceeding 11 installments I know what the slave coffle is You dont need page after page describing things you have already spent page after page describing in 11 other straight books.I am sure plenty of women have a slave fetish, or role playing behind closed doors in their hearts I have known several, and I cannot speak highly enough about them, they are a BLAST But I think it is overly simply minded to project that onto every woman out there Allow for some variety man Although I like this for the most part, if this book s editor had earned his money, we could have been spared several typos a 5th grader should have caught, and it probly could have been at most half as long 444 page was a LOT to slog through for the 200 250 pages worth of interesting material in this book

    John Norman s extensive GOR series finally lost me here After the magical summer of 84, this line of books released its hold on me and I daresay most of the 3 and 4 star ratings I ve given this series wouldn t hold up if I read them today I quit reading Norman after BEASTS OF GOR, having discovered theexciting works of R.E Howard S CONAN and Edgar Rice Burroughs TARZAN.

    Fun entry in the Gor series, as Tarl Cabot travels to the polar region and battles the invading Kurii The author doesn t dwell as much on slave girls as in the previous couple books but there is still enough to be creepy.
