Many on Gor do not believe the great ship of Tersites, the lame, scorned, half-blind, half-mad shipwright, originally of Port Kar, exists. Surely it is a matter of no more than legend. In the previous book, however, Swordsmen of Gor, we learned that the great ship, commissioned by unusual warriors for a mysterious mission, was secretly built in the northern forests and brought down the Alexandra to Thassa, the sea, beginning her voyage to the "World's End," hazarding waters beyond the "farther islands" from which no ship had returned. Rediscover this brilliantly imagined world where men are masters and women live to serve their every desire. Mariners of Gor is the 30th book in the Gorean Saga, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.
