I really enjoy this shared world series. I love the surprise of a minor character in one story becoming a major character in another writer's story later in the series. Nice SiFi read. Recommended

I started this series WAY back in the beginning(60's or 70's I think) but never finished. I wanted to start over but Kindle doesnt have all of them transcribed yet I guess. I was a bit lost because of forgetting a lot of the background and jumping back in the middle of things. There are many authors I like, then a few I tolerate to get to the rest. I think the various subjects are getting beat to death and I hope that someone can introduce something new and exciting. I admire what Larry Niven ha ...more

Another great installment of the Man-Kzin Wars anthologies. All of the tales are both tied to previous stories, and yet stand alone. 'Three At Table', 'Grossgeister Swamp' and 'Catspaws' all piggy back off each other and are written by Hal Colebatch, who has become one of the most prolific Kzin tale authors. We find in these tales of previously seen characters: An ARM agent who gets in a little too deep when on a solitary excursion to find out more about the planet Wunderland's environs; A tale ...more

This is a collection of some short stories/novellas. The first few reminded me what I liked about this setting and its alien races to explore. The last few reminded me why I quit reading them years and years ago-- too many alien races that are the hidden forces behind everything, and are manipulating each other as well as others. I lost track during the Peace Corben stories of who was manipulating who.

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.

A mostly enjoyable collection, but the spark seems to be gone from most of the tales. Re-hashing the same stories again and again has worn a little thin. Thanks for the Niven addition, great story telling and an always amusing look at how the Kzin eventually come to respect humans.
Worth it for collectors, but new readers might want to find Niven's original stories.

The quality varies, but is consistently on the better side.

Mostly stories by Colebatch and Harrington, including some that are sequels, but a new Niven story as well!

Laurence van Cott Niven's best known work is Ringworld (Ringworld, #1) (1970), which received the Hugo, Locus, Ditmar, and Nebula awards. His work is primarily hard science fiction, using big science concepts and theoretical physics. The creation of thoroughly worked-out alien species, which are very different from humans both physically and mentally, is recognized as one of Niven's main strengths ...more
