The Queen of Zamba

by L. Sprague de Camp
Release date: 1954
Type: speculative fiction
Genres: science fiction

Originally published in a magazine as a two-part serial in 1949. First book edition was published in 1954. Also known as Cosmic Manhunt and A Planet Called Krishna.

Meet Victor Hasselborg, easily the most miserable Private Investigator in the entire galaxy. More comfortable with the dull routine of investigating insurance frauds than interstellar adventure, Hasselborg is bound by duty to chase a runaway heiress across known space to the primitive world called Krishna.

Clad in kilt and sword, his hair dyed green, riding a buggy driven by a six legged monster of a beast, Hasselborg's quest takes him through the volatile world of feudal Krishna politics and into the presence of... the Queen of Zamba.

The Queen of Zamba is the first of L. Sprague de Camp's Krishna books - interplanetary romance in the tradition of Edgar Rice Burroughs' Martian Tales.
