Daw 317. No 18 of 37 volumes in the Dray Prescot series of Edgar Rice Burroughs pastiches written by Bulmer as either ''Alan Burt Akers'' or ''Dray Prescot'', all published by Daw Books 1972 - 1978. ''First printing: December 1978'' on copyright page. Cover art by Josh Kirby.

''It was with the Dray Prescot sequence of Edgar Rice Burroughs pastiches - set in a Science-Fantasy interstellar venue and written either as by Alan Burt Akers or as by Dray Prescot or as told to Akers by Dray Prescot - that ''Bulmer reached his largest and most faithful audience. The long sequence begins with Transit to Scorpio (1972) and its English-language release was terminated with Warlord of Antares (1988); a further fifteen volumes (making a total of 52) were released in German. The books are unfailing in their delivery; though they are never entirely inspired, Bulmer's sheer pleasure in the creation of Planetary Romance venues shines through, intermittently but often'' (John Clute/Encyclopeda of SF, 3rd Edition).
