greed style
My favorite of the Sword and Planet genre. Dray is bounced around from Earth To Kregan, from nation to nation, by the Starlords and Sevanti, two Opposing (or are they rivals for the same idea?) (groups or gods?) for purposes they refuse to actually reveal to him while giving him missions that they refuse to tell him what they want him to do.
Unlike most of this sort of books, he gets no advantage from being from Earth, except having been a ship's captain in the British navy in the Napoleonic wars. Not only does he have to start each move from scratch with no idea what to do, but they always dump him somewhere stark naked with zero equipment. This also results in his being enslaved more often than any other S&P hero.

The Dray Prescot series is a sword and planet epic in the tradition of the Burroughs Mars books. This volume contains the first five books of the series which form the "Delian Cycle" because of its focus on Prescot's determination to marry the Princess Delia while simultaneously being a pawn in the schemes of higher powers.

These books have any number of strengths. First and foremost, Bulmer aka Akers is a superb writer. Except for the necessary stage setting of the first book everything moves at a very fast clip. His descriptions of both scenery and action are fantastic. One feels as if one were there.

Secondly, he seems to have put a great deal of thought into his world, Kregen. The politics, geography, economy, arts, architecture, etc. give no hint of being made up as the story progressed. Kregen becomes a real, believable world, a character in its own right.

Finally, he seems to have done a great deal of research into the art and science of ancient military technology. His description of the various bladed weapons, galleys, bows and arrows, etc ring true.

The books also have a number of weaknesses. The characters are not really fleshed out beyond being stereotypes. Prescot has all the attributes of his pulp forebears, John Carter, Tarzan, Conan the Barbarian, Flash Gordon. Must he be invincible in combat? Expert with every weapon? Rise to the highest position wherever he finds himself? Every woman he meets fall in love with him? Ditto for Delia.

More seriously, the machinations of the Savanti and the Star Lords smack too much of the deus ex machina for my tastes. If only the reader had some hint of the motivations (or in the case of the Star Lords, exactly who or what they are) for the actions of these largely omnipotent entities. But we get none of that in these books and my understanding is we don't get a great deal more in the 50 remaining books of the series. This reader felt he was being jerked around quite as much as was Prescot.

But in the final analysis the strengths greatly outweigh the weaknesses. The length of this series is a tribute to its overall merits.

Alan Burt Akers is the psuedonym of Kenneth Bulmer. This is volume the first 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.

This story line can best be dscribed as Edgar Rice Burroughs rewriting John Carter of Mars for a Dungeons and Dragons world with wizards just as strong and evil as in Conan novels. This particular book is a compilation of the first 5 novels, which collectively comprise the Delian cycle, named for the princess Delia whom Prescott courts, marries and adventures with off and on for the rest of his career. War galleys, flying warships, sword battles, aliens with wings/tails/multi-arms becoming and fighting pirates, duels, sieges and mass army battles. You will find them all here. The violence level probably makes the series PG, but only in the sense of Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings. Violence, slavery, interspecies racism are a part of the culture of the world where everything takes place.

This a sword adventure of a planet circling Antares. The hero is a Nelson deckhand who has the grim determination to survive and prosper against huge odds and a host of fantastic enemies and predators. The writer , Ken Bulmer, writes a fast adventure to adventure style which keeps you entertained and involved. Personally, I do not want to be the hero, it usually would be much safer to be his friend and battle companion. I find it most compelling because of the incredible detail that is uniquely of the planet. It compels one to achieve and become the most one could be. The highly detailed action is not offensive nor does it become overly mushy. This is the place where you can slip into the world and have a fantastic adventure. This is the D&D world that others dream of and yet can not achieve. This is a most have for those who have learned to love the writing of Kenneth Bulmer aka Alan Burt Akers.

Call it my adolescence revisited. I read most of this series in my teens & very early 20's and adored them. Now, at 60, I'm finding them no less thrilling to reread. This is an author that knows how to tell a spellbinding story & keep you thirsting for more. The only thing that could possibly please me more is if they were to go to audiobook, as I am on a lot of medications these days & rather than being able to read for hours on end as I used to, I find myself doing it in snippets, to avoid zoning out & missing something. Absolutely love these stories & hope to reread every single one of them before I'm through. Thank you A.B.A.
