"The Temple of Forbidden Fruit" is one of five stories featuring REH character John Gorman.
John Gorman was created by Robert E. Howard in an untitled synopsis for a "spicy" adventure story.  
Marc A. Cerasini and Charles Hoffman
took this synopsis and used it as a basis for a short story, "She-Cats of Samarkand." The story was published  under the byline of Sam Walser, a pseudonym REH used when he wrote for the "spicy" pulps.
Four additional John Gorman adventures were published under the author's real names.  All of these stories appeared in Robert M. Price’s Cryptic Publications.
