Spellsinger by Alan Dean Foster

Snatched through a portal into a land of magic, a young musician must use a mysterious, multistring duar to rescue the world into which he has fallen before he can return to his own

Jonathan Thomas Meriweather is a typical college student, interested in girls, music, and an occasional taste of reefer. But when a journey through an interdimensional portal lands him in a world of talking animals and ominous sorcery, he finds he is on a very different trip indeed. Here, when he plays a strange instrument called a duar, peculiar things happen: powerful magic that may be the only way to stop a dark force that threatens his new world—and his old one. Reluctantly, he finds himself teaming up with a semi-senile turtle wizard; a thieving, backstabbing otter; and a bewildered Marxist dragon to rally an army for the war about to come.

Spellsinger , the first in Alan Dean Foster’s eight-book Spellsinger series, introduces a world of magic and mayhem, where animals are people and plunging ahead no matter what the consequences may be the only way to survive.

Alan Dean Foster created a fantastic and fun series. I had all of the books back when they came out. I have regretted giving them away many years ago. I do hope these come back into paperback once again. I would like to own the series once again. Once you pick the book up, it's hard to put down.

I have never read, nor heard of, a more auspicious opening to a series. It is an excellent work, blending modern society with the fairytale realms in a manner that would dazzle anyone from Tolkien to Heinlein. I strongly reccomend the whole series.
