A Note On The Tapes From Africa. Chapter One. The Scorpion calls Although I have had many names and been called many things by the men and beasts of two worlds, I was born plain Dray Prescot. My parents died when I was young; but I knew them both and loved them deeply. Had anyone then told me of Kregen beneath Antares and of the marvels and mysteries of that wild and savage world I would have run as though from a leper or a madman. The natural aversion my father held to the sea was founded on deep suspicion of the morality and system of those responsible for manning the ships.

declared Nodgen, spitting, say I do not enter this place of my own free will. We were moving forward with the rabble all jostling and pushing to get through the inner. door before the swarthriders roared in to shaft the laggards. It seemed important to me to say aloud that I, too, did not enter here of my own free will. I said it. We shuffled along, as always caring for the draught animals and beasts of burden in our care.

Fame and fortune may await the winners of the life and death game called Jikaida, but for Dray Prescot his triumphs seemed only to bring infamy and misfortune. An Earthman transposed to the distant world that circles the twin suns of Antares, Prescot had to find a way out of his Jikaida City exile - for his homeland needed him in its hour of danger. But it seemed that fate now would place him in an even more terrifying game - a treasure hunt played out in the illusion webbed catacombs of a haunted valley where desperate men came to find fortunes at the risk of their followers lives and their own sanity.

Oddly, you'd expect a "classic D&D" dungeon adventure novel to come from the hands of the gaming industries authors, and certainly many fine books have been done by them. But here we have a well known fantasy author, who (with tongue firmly in check) decided to send his hero on a classic "dungeon crawl". It's great fun, and great adventure.

The whole Dray Prescot series is rather fun, but perhaps to some a little dated (they remind me a bit of John Carter) . Still, they are fun `sword & sandal' adventures.
Alan Burt Akers is the psuedonym of Kenneth Bulmer. This is volume 21 of 52 novels written in the style of Edgar Rice Burroughs. These books are directly like Burroughs 11 classic John Carter of Mars novels. The protagonist Dray Prescott is a Napoleonic era British naval lieutenant who was teleported from the deck of his ship to the planet Kregen around the star Scorpio. His story is recounted in short cycles of three to six novels describing parts of his life and adventures. Prescott was summoned by 'Magic Level Technology' entities to guide the many human and xeno races of the planet towards an unknowable future of their devising. Prescott is not the only champion, nor does he desire to be their champion. He makes a family and life for himself while being repeatedly transported without instructions or equipment into battle zones to tip the outcome of the battles. Once he has discovered his objectives and succeeded he then attempts to make his way home again.

In this particular novel Prescott is far from home in a city where living 'Battle Chess' called jikaida is the primary athletic sport. It is a combination of gladiatorial combat and chess. In the first chapters Prescott is kidnapped, forced to battle as a piece, and sold into slavery. As a slave he is taken to a pyramid studded desert and goes underground as part of a several hundred man dungeon adventuring expedition. He is separated from his owners and adventures with chance companions throughout a dungeon the size of New York.

This story can best be summarized as Tarzan, John Carter, or Conan meets the Dungeons and Dragon ultimate dungeon crawl.

I love this series, and this is my favorite of all the novels.
A FORTUNE FOR KREGEN is one of the best Dray Prescot novels Bulmer penned. Like the two previous reviews state: this is very much a dungeon and dragon based novel, but it's not the only time Bulmer wrote one in this series. For two more D&D adventures see Mazes of Scorpio #27 and Omens of Kregen #36. Basically it's the same book rewritten three times, but that's okay. It's a good book.
