large outline Gor, as would be expected, was not a sphere,
but a spheroid. It was somewhat heavier in its southern
hemisphere and was shaped somewhat like the Earth - like
a rounded, inverted top. The angle of its axis was somewhat
sharper than the Earth's, but not enough to prevent its
having a glorious periodicity of seasons.
Moreover, like the Earth, it had two polar regions and
an equatorial belt, interspersed with northern and southern
temperate zones. Much of the area of Gor, surprisingly
enough, was blank on the map, but I was overwhelmed trying
to commit as many of the rivers, seas, plains, and peninsulas
to memory as I could.
