has done it again!Gay, Bejeweled Nazi Bikers of Gor
For those of you who have not had the...pleasure... the Gor novels, by John Norman (pseudonym of a real live Harvard English professor!), are a series of hideously written scifi-fantasy novels about an "alternate Earth" called Gor, in which manly men, who are manly because they know the True Way of Things, that way being the way that allows them to be manly, unlike the unmanly men of Earth who are definitely NOT manly, or men, but are of Earth, and not of Gor...where was I? Oh yeah. The Gor novels are about the struggles of the manly populace to rule over the slaves, who are women, mostly, because it is the True Way of Things for women to be slaves, beautiful slaves. In silk. And collars. Beautiful collars, which are beautiful because they are slave collars, placed around the necks of the beautiful slaves by their manly owners...DAMMIT.
*ahem* Start again!
For those of you who have not had the pleasure, the Gor novels are exceedingly wordy books about war and sex and gender relations on a planet called Gor. THAT'S ALL.
But they really are wonderful, in that Theissian Eye of Argon
way. Meaning they're actually awful, but will convulse you with laughter. Incessantly turgid, and yet strangely torpid, every page awash in this hellaciously hairy prose as purple as a ten-inch hardon. Just gloriously, self-consciously pumped up with Importance. They're collector's items now, so they don't come cheap, but if you ever see one, jump on it. They're truly worth the coin.
Oh, and the weepingcock
entry linked above? Is to a parody that is utterly BRILLIANT in its evocation of Norman's...writing. Read and be choked with laughter. You'll wonder "Can the original really be this bad?" Rest assured, it can.
Oh yes. It really, really can.
P.S. In the comments is the link to Houseplants of Gor
, yet another incredible parody.
