Awards & Reviews
The plot for Fighting Slave of Gor is all-too-familiar. It is the third time that an unsuspecting individual from Earth finds themselves transferred and entangled into the oppressive, sexual slavery-driven society of Gor. Despite the introduction of new characters, the pacing of the story remains stagnant for some readers, adding that it appeared to just be a reiteration once again of an already established and imposed female sexual submission theme.
