I’ve started a few books this month, but only finished the first three of John Norman’s Gor series. The series is (in)famous for its sexual politics and the philosophy underpinning them. I read them having been pulled into a nostalgic reverie on my adolescent fantasy and sci-fi reading habits by the remake of Predator (my mind moving from Predator to Conan, to the books I was inspired to read by a slightly older, similarly fantasy oriented boy). I never read the Gor books then, but remembered them from their covers and decided to immerse myself (one needs an excuse to have done so…).
