Gor is the setting for an extended series of sword and planet novels by author and philosophy professor John Norman.
The sexual philosophies and content are widely mocked.
DAW Books, which published the Gor series from the 8th volume (Hunters of Gor) through the 25th volume (Magicians of Gor), subsequently decided to cease publication of the books, citing low sales. In 1996, the author cited the reason as he was on a blacklist of authors disliked by feminists.
