The party of treason in Ar is triumphant. After the disaster of the delta campaign Ar is substantially defenseless. The forces of Cos, and her allies, are welcomed into the city as liberators. Ar's Station, which held out so valiantly against superior forces in the north, is denounced as traitorous. Veterans of the delta campaign are despised and ridiculed. Patriotism and manhood are denigrated. Ar's walls are being dismantled willingly by her own citizens to the music of flute girls. Lawlessness and propaganda are rampant. Marlenus, the great ubar, who might have organized and led a resistance, who might have rallied the city, is presumed dead, somewhere in the Voltai mountains. The Home Stone of Ar's Station is displayed in Ar as an object of contempt. Marcus, of Ar's Station, wishes to regain the Home Stone of his beloved city, for no city can die whose Home Stone survives. Cabot is concerned with a warrior's vengeance upon sedition and treachery, and, in particular, with meeting one who stands high amongst the conspirators, a beautiful woman now enthroned as ubara, whose name is Talena. Coinciding with the 40th anniversary of the first book of the Gorean Saga, TARNSMAN OF GOR, E-Reads is proud to release the very first complete publication of all Gor books by John Norman, in both print and ebook editions, including the long-awaited 26th novel in the saga, WITNESS OF GOR. Many of the original Gor books have been out of print for years, but their popularity has endured. Each book of this release has been specially edited by the author and is a definitive text.

About John Norman

John Norman is the creator of the Gorean Saga, the longest-running series of adventure novels in Science Fiction history. Starting in December, 1966, with TARNSMAN OF GOR, the series was put on hold after its 25th installment, MAGICIANS OF GOR, in 1988, when DAW refused to publish its successor, WITNESS OF GOR. After several unsuccessful attempts to find a trade publishing outlet, E-Reads brought the series back into print in 2001, and after WITNESS OF GOR (2002), PRIZE OF GOR (2008), KUR OF GOR (2009), SWORDSMEN OF GOR (2010) and MARINERS OF GOR (2011), they are now preparing the 2012 release of CONSPIRATORS OF GOR. Norman has also produced a separate, three-installment science fiction series, THE TELNARIAN HISTORIES, plus two other fiction works (GHOST DANCE and TIME SLAVE), a nonfiction paperback (IMAGINATIVE SEX) and a collection of thirty short stories, entitled NORMAN INVASIONS. THE TOTEMS OF ABYDOS is scheduled in Spring, 2012. All of Norman's work is available both in print and in ebook formats. The Internet has proven to be a fertile ground for the imagination of Norman's ever growing fanbase, and at Gor Chronicles ( ), a web site specially created for his tremendous fan following, one may read everything there is to know about this unique fictional culture. John Norman was born in Chicago, Illinois in 1931. He is married and has three children.
