Welwyn Wilton Katz | 46 comments Gorgeous, but too short. Still, with luck it will bring some readers back to Niven's famous Ringworld. I love his portrayal of aliens. I think, so far, only Larry Niven and C.J. Cherryh have been able to create aliens that are not humans in disguise. Any writer should read Ringworld and (by C.J.) Serpent's Reach.

aldenoneil | 1000 comments Excellent video. Thanks for sharing. The scale Niven (and the video) presents is mind-boggling. That's part of why I love the novel so much. Really great science fiction keeps you thinking about the technologies and social impacts presented long after you've finished, and Ringworld delivers on many counts.

It also inspired a pretty cool videogame.
