Welcome to ~The Gorean Cave~ . . . I am Fogaban.
Do you really care what the books actually tell us of the Gorean Saga, the Chronicles of Counter Earth?
Of course you do.
What I should have asked is, do you care what people's websites tell you about Gor?
Seriously, why else would you search the net for Gorean information if you did not want to know the truth?
~The Gorean Cave~ may not be the first website you're looked at. And, of course, it may not be the only Gorean website you look at.
However, the other sites you go to, do they maybe show what looks like a quote but there is no book reference?
Or worse yet, do they express 'facts' but with no support at all?
Here at ~The Gorean Cave~ I provide what the books say – and then support it with book number and page.
I also provide enough information on a subject so that you can understand the overall theme of the books. In other words, not just posting one quote out of context.
Obviously, all credit goes to John Norman as the original author.
Buy The Book
~The Gorean Cave~ is NOT a substitute for the books themselves.
Find them, buy them and read them.
I've even made it really easy for you. Search the links on the right.
Now, as you read what you find here, you can have your own copy of the book I reference. Find the page, read the quote yourself and then read the surrounding text too. *
You will then realize that this is the most accurate source of reference material anywhere.
By The Book
Most other Gorean websites are nothing more than deposits of what has been read elsewhere - and not what the books actually say. This only adds to the glut of misinformation.
The uninformed, overwhelmed by the sheer volume of this misinformation, cannot help but believe it to be true. They think, "This must be correct. So many different sites say so."
But is it really the truth? Is it really By The Book?
The slave position of 'Karta' is one perfect example of something that has propagated across countless Gorean websites:
This is nothing more than blatant make-believe.
In what I provide here, I did not copy from another website.
Just a sample of truths you will find within these pages . . .
* Due to different publishers, printings, font sizes and words per page, my page references may not align exactly with the book you have.
All my work here, I have done for you.
I wish you well,
