Man-Kzin Wars 6 (Man-Kzin Wars #6)

3.71  ·  Rating Details  ·  517 Ratings  ·  6 Reviews

After two unpleasant defeats at the hands of the humans from Earth - those rotten no good, sneaky monkeys with tools - the Kzin Third Fleet has decided a change of strategy is in order. Not scream and leap, but the more subtle and ultimately more satisfying (because it might work!) feint and pounce. The man-killing cats from Kzin are baaack.

Only luck

this is only for 'Trojan Cat' - the earlier main story was just depressing. But TC - awesome. If you had to choose between saving your family... or the rest of humanity... what would you feel about it afterwards? I don't remember anyone else who tackled this... and won.

This is the sixth in the “Man Kzin Wars” series, and contains two stories. The first, more a novella than a short story, is entitled, “The Heroic Myth of Lt. Nora Argamentine.” - Donald Kingsbury, who also wrote “The Survior” (from Man-Kzin Wars IV” – see my review). This story tells essentially two tales; one is of Chuut-Ritt (formerly “Trainer of Slaves/Eater of Grass”) trying to bargain to present the Hypershunt Motor (which he had captured, along with Nora, who had tried to destroy it) to th ...more

Nice book in the series. This are nice as they can be read as standalone books or as part of the shared world story line. Good solid SiFi stories, nice read. Recommended

A long running anthology series with stories set during the Man-Kzin Wars in Larry Niven’s Known Space universe. Niven started this thing up because while the Wars were very significant in the history of Known Space, he himself was not adept at writing about conflict. Niven has written some of the stories but most are by other authors. The writing ranges from average to excellent. Recommended if you are a fan of Known Space.

The series continues. Two stories, both are good. The first sets the stage for an interesting change in Kzin strategy. The second is a story of betrayal and possible redemption.
