Gor? Seriously? None of the votes came from women! I remember one of the magazine editors,back in the 60s Ted White in Amazing, responding to requests for Gor serialization this way:"What if someone wrote a series of stories based on the premise that the only proper social position for black people was as slaves for the pleasure of white people;that furthermore,they could only be truly happy when they accepted their slave status. Would you think that sort of story would be appropriate for this magazine? Why,then,would that same attitude towards women be?"

I'm not much addicted to series in novels. I often find the standard drops alarmingly. However, I do have my favorites:
  • Rex Stout's Nero Wolfe books
  • PG Wodehouse's novels
  • Patrick O'Brien's Aubrey & Maturin opus
For you mad-definition types, I'll define a series as being more than three novels set in the same background with at least some recurring characters.
