Publisher’s Blurb - Lower Cover
Here is the magnificent world of Gor, known also as Counter-Earth, a planet as strangely populated, as threatening, as beautiful as any in fiction. Here too is Tarl Cabot, the one picked from millions to be trained and schooled and disciplined by the best teachers, swordsmen, bowmen on Gor.

And now Kuurus, of the dread Caste of Assassins, was on a mission of vengeance. For in the newly rebuilding city of Ko-ro-ba, someone had foully murdered a young warrior with flaming red hair - the mark of Tarl Cabot of Ko-ro-ba, formerly of Earth. All guilty men feared a hunting Assassin, for none knew which was to be the victim.
