John Norman used various ancient earth societies and cultures as templates for those found on Gor. He was also inspired, to some degree, by a number of ancient philosophers. For those who might be interested in the foundations Norman used for his world, we have tried to assemble a representative list of reference books.

We tried to include books which cover the various cultures, philosophies, military equipment and tactics, etc. which appear in the Chronicles of Gor series. We also tried to include books of varying depth, from books written for the casual reader to titles which would appeal to those who want more comprehensive information.

The books in the reference section of the Online Store are intended to be a resource for YOU, our members. Of course the list we compiled should NOT be considered "authoritative" or "complete" - there are hundreds of titles which are just as good as what we've listed. If there is a book which is relevant to Gor which you think should be included, or books which are there that you think shouldn't be, PLEASE let us know. If you think there are too many categories, too few categories, or if you other suggestions on how to make the store better - PLEASE let us know.

Our goal is to make it easy for our members to find all the information about Gor they might want and to provide resources which are as useful as possible.

One step towards that goal is tha addition of links to used copies of the books we've listed so people that would like to purchase the book, but want to save a little money, can find a less expensive alternative.

Another step toward that goal, we have added links to various library search tools. We know that not everyone will want to purchase reference books, so we have included links to search various libraries - worldwide - for these or similar titles. One of the search utilities is called LibWeb.

Here is some information about LibWeb.
Quote:
Library Servers via WWW
Updated daily.
LibWeb currently lists ove 7700 links to libraries in 146 countries.


Another Library Search utility for which we have supplied a link is WorldCat.

Again, if there is anything else we can do to help you learn more about Gor - PLEASE let us know.

For your convenience, and because this site is dedicated to the Chronicles of Gor, we have the new Gor books on the main page for each Online Store. There are also other categories you can browse which contain books that have some relevance to the cultural and historical backgrounds on which Gor is based, or which have been recommended by our members.

At the bottom of each category page there are links to other pages in that category. Clicking on one of the books will bring you to the page for that volume, where you can read more about that title and click Click to see original Image in a new window if you want to buy it.

No, we get a list from Amazon of items on which we earned a referral fee and the amount we earned from that item, but there is no information about WHO bought those items. We don't even know which items were purchased by Staff members. All information about your purchase is confidential and handled exclusively by Amazon.


Requested and Answered by Lemuel on 02-Oct-2007 21:10 (3808 reads)
No, we do not have access to any of your personal information. All the checkout procedures are handled directly by Amazon on their secure server.


Requested and Answered by Lemuel on 02-Oct-2007 21:03 (2947 reads)
No. Although we do work closely with John Norman's agent and publisher, E-Reads, we do not receive any kind of financial support from them. Until the books started selling all the money for running this site was donated by a few generous Staff members.


Requested and Answered by Lemuel on 02-Oct-2007 20:54 (4147 reads)
Actually, no. The percentage we earn from sales is very small and the little money we do earn helps to keep this site up and running. There are various costs associated with running a web site that is ad-free. We have to pay for things like domain name registration, server space rental, site software purchases and upgrades, etc.

Until the books were published these things were paid for by some of the Staff with their personal funds and none of the Staff are paid - we are all volunteers here.


Requested and Answered by Lemuel on 02-Oct-2007 20:47 (4008 reads)
For most things, not everything. There are a few items for which we do not get a referal fee.


Requested and Answered by Lemuel on 02-Oct-2007 20:40 (4210 reads)
Yes, we do get a small percentage from each item sold through our online store. We also get a small percentage from the sale of most items purchased directly from Amazon if they are bought within 24 hours of following a link from our site.

We wanted to make it as easy as possible for people to find and purchase new editions of the Gor books. If you search Amazon for a specific title it will show more than one edition of the book, which may make it difficult to locate the books you want. The Online Store only shows the new editions of the Gor books and allows you to add the books you are looking for to your Click to see original Image in a new window Shopping Cart before transfering to Amazon for secure checkout.

There is an excellent article written by one of our staff (Charlotte J.) entitled A Thumbnail Sketch of Copyright Law which has a wealth of information regarding copyright law as well as links to addition information that can be found elsewhere.

You can request that a definition be added to the Encyclopedia by clicking the on the main Encyclopedia page or by selecting the Encyclopedia subheading labeled "Request a definition" in the Main Menu.

The boxes labeled "Name" and "E-mail" will automatically be filled with the information you provided when you registered. You may choose not to be notified when your definition has been added to the Encyclopedia. Enter the term for which you are requesting a definition in the box labeled "Term to define" and click


Requested and Answered by Lemuel on 28-Feb-2007 14:44 (3002 reads)
If the term you enter is spelled differently than how it is spelled in the books the search may not find what you are looking for. As an example - a search for "sa tarna" will not return any matches, but there are 5 entries containing the term "Sa-Tarna" in the Encyclopedia. If your first attempt does not show any results, try entering only one word (or a portion of a word) that you are looking for.

If you still can't find the term you are looking for, you can always request a definition.


Requested and Answered by Lemuel on 28-Feb-2007 14:42 (6838 reads)
You can search the Encyclopedia from the main Encyclopedia page or from the page that appears when you select the Encyclopedia subheading labeled "Search for a definition" in the Main Menu.

On these pages there is a box labeled "Search term" where you can enter the word you are searching for. The two drop down boxes - labeled "Search" and "Search in category" - allow you to narrow your search to a specific area of the Encyclopedia, or to expand your search to larger areas of the Encyclopedia.

The "Search" drop down box has three options - "Terms", "Definitions" or "Terms and definitions" - to choose from. The "Terms" option limits the search to the words and phrases for which there are definitions. The "Definitions" option limits the search to the text contained within the various definitions. The "Terms and definitions" option searches defined words and phrases as well as their definitions.

The "Search in category" drop down box has a multitude of options. Selecting one of the categories from the drop down list will limit your search to that category.

Once you have selected which search limitations you wish to use (if any) and have entered the word you are looking for, click to find it.

If the question you wish to answer is already on the "Open questions" list, clicking on the question will load a form where you can reply. Type your answer into the white box labeled "Answer" and, once you are satisfied with what you have written, click on the button marked at the bottom of the form. When the staff have approved your answer it will appear beneath the question in the FAQ.

If you are submitting a new question and its answer, select the "Submit a Q&A" link from the indented list beneath the "F.A.Q." heading at the left on your screen. This will bring up a form with separate boxes for the question, the answer, a shortened version of the question for the "How do I..." block at the top of your screen, and a brief description of your answer for the "Did you know?" block - also at the top of the screen. These last two fields will display on every page, so please be sure that you include which area of the site they refer to. For example: Did You Know..."You can submit an answer to a FAQ question." is much clearer than, Did You Know..."You can submit an answer."

Select the appropriate category for the Q&A and enter the information in the boxes provided. When you are finished, click on the button marked to be sure everything displays properly. If you are happy with the way it looks, click the button. Once your contribution has been approved it will be added to the FAQ.

Polls can only be added to a topic that you have started yourself - this can be an existing thread, or one that you create specifically for the poll. There can be only one active poll in a single thread.

The poll will be visible at the start of the thread (on every page of a multi-paged thread) and in the main Poll screen accessed through Main Menu.

To add a poll to a topic which you started previously, select that thread from the forum menu then click on the Click to see original Image in a new window button at the top or bottom of the screen to bring up the Poll Configuration screen.

To start a poll in a new thread, begin by selecting the forum category where you want to add the poll topic, then press the Click to see original Image in a new window button. This will bring up the new topic screen. If you need help filling in this form, please see the FAQ for "How do I...Start a new thread in one of the forums?" After submitting the new topic information the Poll Configuration screen will appear.

Once the Polls Configuration screen appears, enter the Poll Question and its description (less then 255 characters) in the appropriate boxes. Set the Expiration date or leave the default date if you think one week should suffice.

If you wish to be notified when your poll has expired, make sure "Yes" is checked for this option, if you would rather not be notified please check "No". Now fill in the list of possible answers in the fields labeled "Options" and, if you wish, set the colors used for the statistics. When you are finished, press to post your poll.
