Here is what Amazon say about the author on their Vikram and the Vampire; Classic Hindu Tales of Adventure, Magic, and Romance page:
Amazon have the book on free Kindle download.Amazon.com wrote:Richard Francis Burton was an explorer, translator, writer, soldier, spy, fencer, and diplomat. He is most famous for his translations of One Thousand and One Nights and the Kama Sutra and for having been the first European to visit the Great Lakes of Africa. He traveled to Mecca in disguise and spoke nearly thirty languages. He died in 1890.
You can also find Vikram and the Vampire; Classic Hindu Tales of Adventure, Magic, and Romance in other formats at Project Gutenberg.
Some of the stories might work for Indian-like campaigns. (I'm not sure if they would fit Mahasarpa, but I think this is worth looking at.)
One of the critical reviews of Vikram and the Vampire; Classic Hindu Tales of Adventure, Magic, and Romance points to another translation (Volumes 6/7 of Katha Saritha Sagara translated by Penzer/Tawney) and says that is a more accurate version of the story. That is apparantly free to download too. (I'm still looking to confirm this is a legal download, at this point.)
