From the cover: “The planet Krishna has been the setting for some of L. Sprague de Camp’s most popular science fiction adventures. The Prisoner Of Zhamanak continues the saga begun in 1949 with the publication of The Queen Of Zamba. Other works, such as The Tower Of Zanid, The Hand Of Zei and The Hostage Of Zir followed in the series.
This new adventure on Krishna, with a culture that is virtually medieval and where Earth technology is forbidden, finds sociologist Alicia Dyckman a prisoner of Khorosh, king of Zhamanak. Percy Mjipa, Oxford educated Terran consul, is enlisted to attempt a rescue.
What follows is an exciting series of adventures and misadventures which makes this de Camp’s most erotic and colourful contribution to modern science fiction.”
