Norman is Vintage!!

Postby FeorieFrimon » Thu Jan 10, 2013 1:45 pm

I went to me favorite used book store in Atlanta when I was visiting family over the holidays and thought to pick up some of the Gor novels I knew they had there.

Only...they were $25+ a piece!! Norman went vintage! The red cover versions were almost $50!!

Norman was vintage up until the craze of e-printing. Copies of the books based on their limited availability could sell for over $100. I got the first 11 books for $1 from a little old lady with the weirdest grin on her face as she tucked them into a brown bag. I sold the first 7 in the series for $450 a few years late. A nice score for a teenager. :lol:

Yup, my 16 books netted me a tidy sum on eBay as well, resulting in a few bottles of good whisky.

I'm keeping hold of mine in the advent of global catastrophe. If I am ever sat in a life and death situation, where the difference between living and death is a fire, I'll throw myself on the fire and leave the books.

first, before you do that, be sure to arrange all of john norman's books in a circle around the campfire. wear something loose and flowing like pajamas and say some preachy things. then when they set you and your pajamas on fire, they can start a whole new religion around you and call you judas the baptist who preached the holy gospels according to norman.

and lo, in that day it came to past that thou sayeth: 'at the gate i was met by one of the caste of initiates, a dour, thin-lipped, drawn man with deep sunken eyes, clad in the pure white robes of his caste.' - priest-kings of gor 15:11

and having spaketh such, judas the baptist threweth himself upon the fire and fell down as if dead. verily, verily i say unto you, the holy gospels of norman according to judas the baptist liveth on forever and ever. amen.

Okay, I laughed Dani. Mental image was priceless.

If I won't put up with an in-character owner trying to control my OOC life, what makes you think I'll put up with you trying to do that?
