  1. 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

  2. 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 has done [...]

  3. 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 about the planet Wunderland s environs A tale of Vaemar Ritt [...]

  4. 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.

  5. 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 Spaceokssboch p 1026

  6. 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.
