This was such a fun read. I fell in love with the Fuzzies straight away. I enjoyed that this had three of the books about the fuzzies in it.

If you enjoy a read that is fun, with a small touch of redemption and sci-fi, pick this up. You won't be sorry.

The Complete Fuzzy (Paperback) by H. Beam Piper


Piper belonged to a school of writers, who didn’t question the notion that Man was the best thing that had happened to the Universe. His was a literature of high organization and obscure knowledge. He also believed in the reconciliation of problems by logic, common sense or compromise, and in the last resort, by justifiable force.

With the permission of the H. Beam Piper estate, John Scalzi was able to re-write the first novel of Fuzzy trilogy, "Little Fuzzy". The original trilogy is also available under the title "The Complete Fuzzy". All four works are focused on humans encountering a previous unknown intelligent species on a world undergoing extensive exploitation by a corporation.

Both "Little Fuzzy" and "Fuzzy Nation" are focused on the nature of capitalism and indigenous peoples, a topic still relevant to us today a

If I could give this book more than five stars, I would do so. It is heart-warming, intriguing, adorable, and fun. It also has something to teach, and if you can't take something away from what you're reading....well, I can't actually comprehend not being able to take something away from a read. Suffice it to say, this book has something to say, and has the best outlook on humanity, even my cynicism was put in its place with this read. Truly phenomenal. Read it. Then, read it to your children/pe ...more

Perhaps it has something to do with the fact that I read these books during middle school, or perhaps it's because they're a really interesting glimpse of early 1960s culture applied to life on a distant colony planet of Earth...but it's mostly due to the fact that the books are fun and and interesting. They can be read as a critique of colonialism through a speculative-fiction lens, thought I didn't know that when I was 13.

Little Fuzzy, Fuzzy Sapiens, and Fuzzies and Other People are brought together in a unique one-volume collection of the author's best-selling science-fiction series, first published more than three decades ago. Original.

An interesting books about discovering new sapient life on a planet humans are exploiting. What do the people in power do and what if the sapience is in question? This book explores these topics and more. This book contains all 3 Fuzzy novels by H. Beam Piper.

A dated view of humans knowing what is best for an underdeveloped, (but lucky for them) cute species.

I prefer John Scalzi's updated, snarky take on this story with the fuzzys knowingly using their cuteness to manipulate the lumbering interlopers.

Several stories about the fuzzy intelligent creatures on a planet rich in minerals that industrialists want and are willing to exterminate a species to gain control. Includes a long lost manuscript.

I really enjoyed the Fuzzy series. They were a very simple and enjoyable read that tied in some interesting legal concepts. H. Beam Piper is definitely an author that I'm going to read more of.

An intriguing blend of sci-fi, 19th century paternalism philosophy and legal thriller, this is a classic I am sorry to say I just learned about in the past month.
