Here's the original cover for the first Gor book. My copy (not this one) is in almost perfect condition. I bought it in 1966 and loved it. But then, after that 4th book, I couldn't stand to read his current stuff. I found it boring, long-winded, and pointless, among other things.

(I was so hungry for Burroughs and Kline back then, that I even bought the unauthorized Barton Werper Tarzan books. I also enjoyed the Torlo Hannis books by Charles Nuetzel. One title by Nuetzel - Slavegirl of Noomis - was probably inspired by Norman's popularity at that time. Concerning Lin Carter: I have, even now, a soft spot for his pastiches and still read him.)
