Ironically, however, he is sexually aroused by the iron slave collars of servitude.

Taken slave in childhood, Gorgik gains his freedom, leads a slave revolt, and becomes a minister of state, finally abolishing slavery. The eleven tales that make up Return to Neveryon are set before the dawn of history, in a location that might be Africa or Asia. But all take a greater or lesser part in recounting an overall story running through the whole series, the history of a man called Gorgik the Liberator. Many of the stories have different protagonists and, indeed, different sets of foreground characters. It is an intricate web of adventure, intrigue and desire and a literary puzzle where meaning, parable and paradox collide. Ironically, however, he is sexually aroused by the iron slave collars of servitude. Some Informal Remarks Towards the Modular Calculus, Part Four Return to Neveryon, Vol 2 Pryn, who can write in the largely pre-literate land, flees her mountain village on the back of a dragon, searches for Neveryona, a fabulous lost civilization, encounters a host of intriguing characters along the way, and aids Gorgik's slave revolt.

Does this contaminate his mission -- or intensify it? Presumably elaborated from an ancient text of unknown geographical origin, the stories are sunk in translators' and commentators' introductions and appendices, forming a richly comic frame.
