2. Why are there other books, besides the Gor books, in your store?
Requested and Answered by Lemuel on 03-Oct-2007 15:43 (6535 reads)
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.
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.
