It would have been a clever 5 page story, but it went on forever. The best story was Tomcat Tactics, in which the situation mirrors situations in real life which makes you think xii your own box.


This has been a cornerstone of the Known Space series which deals with psychology, science, kan circumstances affect thinking and cultural norms, etc.

The other stories do that well, but some of them tend to drag. Zeno’s Roulette is interesting until the end, where the final solution shows that there would have been so ozin other ways to accomplish the task. If you have nanobot level technology, why do you need a human delivery system?

I love the known space series and this was an overall fulfilling book that carries the stories further and fills in details and nuances of an already amazingly detailed universe.

Known Space is awesome, I have every book in it and I would love to xii a 2nd copy of each book so I could put the stories in chron order so I’d have an excuse to reread them all again! This anthology is highly recommended. It’s rare when all the stories in an anthology are this good. Two Types of Teeth by Jane Lindskold: I enjoy stories where Kzin and human work together to confound other Kzin or mxn.

Pick of the Litter by Charles E.

Man-Kzin Wars XIII | Book by Larry Niven | Official Publisher Page | Simon & Schuster

Humans attempt to capture and raise and socialize Kzin kits This premise caught my attention right away. Tomcat Tactics by Charles E. A Wunderland the planet story.

Humans fight back against Kzin occupying their planet. Another good premise, and I was happy to see another Wunderland story.

At the Gates by Alex Hernandez: Humans and Kzin inhabit a lost colony of Earth when a damaged Kzin ship appears above the planet.

Suspenseful with a good payoff. I could have added this to my favorites, but I didn’t want to include them all! Zeno’s Roulette by David Bartell: A story involving the Puppeteers and a secret they use humans to retrieve.

The Puppeteers aren’t my favorite characters, but it was interesting to see them included in another anthology–and it was a puzzling mystery.

Bound for the Promised Land by Alex Hernandez: Bobcat, a tailess Kzin telepath, comes across an opportunity to escape his ship with a telepathic ARM agent hot on his trail. Btw, I’d heard earlier that Alex Herandez was a good, upcoming addition to the anthology authors. Welcome aboard, and thanks for two great stories!

Buy for others

Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase. Much like Star Trek which use other races, Vulcan and Klingons, to be foils to compare mankind these authors do the same. This book does not disappoint. Although the first story, Misunderstanding, is confusing the other six stories are great.

Two types of Teeth and Pick of the Litter are new dimensions into how we might interact with another species. They both focus on the Kzin point of view and how they would see us.


Buy this book xiji you wads this series or you love Star Trek’s approach to understand ourselves. One person found this helpful. The first story, ‘Misunderstanding’ has no conflict between Kzin and human. It is instead about a different assault and attempt to gather slaves. It is the funniest thing I have read since about 4 books back in Pratchett’s Disc World series. Misunderstanding was worth the price of the book for me.

The longest story just got boring. Really wish there was more real ward fiction published. But if you want space opera, kzn is it. I wanted to specifically mention the first story: It’s not often these days that I find mman story with some unusual and even new elements but this is one such story.

I’m not, of course, going to give away the plot, but I will say that I was surprised and happy to read the story. Unlike another reviewer, I did not find it too long at all but it was just the right length for me. Shared universe series like this one can be fun. It’s interesting reading different authors maj on the same basic environment.

The 13th book in the series was satisfying from that perspective as well. Larry Niven is my favorite sci-fi author. I enjoy all of his books!! Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. Seems like the authors are more interested in injecting long and not understandable words than in making a better plot. Most plots are so micro and leading nowhere.

Also, there are a lot of contradiction between the stories, almost like there wasr 2 species of Kzin. Anytime a “deal” comes around on this series, it’s a must buy. There are several books written around this “universe” theme, which I believe would be the RingWorld Universe.
