Comments: i just finished Ringworld Throne. It IS a sequel after all.
The biggest difference is that nearly half the novel is away from
Louis Wu's brain. The first two books are entirely from Louis'
perception of things, which I found very interesting. This crap
involving certain ringworld hominids under seige by vampires got
old very quick, and future editions should cut it to a minimum.
Aside from that, I liked Niven's use of a Protector's full potential
as opposed to the "fighting to lose" tactics of Teela Brown.
Any being with the kind of Brain power these things have should not
be killed so easily. By the way, Niven really didn't have to
add the swelled skull aspect to a Protector's anatomy. I know of
another hominid with more brain capacity and size than Homo Sapiens,
and its name is Neanderthal. They were still relative idiots.
Cro-magnon man was capable of computer programming as well,
but society hadn't come to that point. Brain size isn't important
it is what you do with it. (and don't give me any of that POWDER
crap, either. That boy just needed a tan and a grounded surface)

Comments: After looking at previous comments I decided to ad in my own
two or three cents.
It might just be my imagination, but I think that the Kzinti
in Niven's world are being used to keep humanity under control
and not the other way around, as most people seem to think.
Now I know that this may seem a strange thought, but consider
this. Humans+Tree of life=big trouble for anything that isn't
human. The puppeteers have been dealing with humanity for some
time in human years, and so it's more than a little likely that
they know about humanities ability to transform themselves into
Protectors if necessary, even if the majority of the populace of
Terra have no knowledge of this fact. Human Protectors are just
too damn powerful to be allowed existance. Enough of them could
be a danger even to the technologically advanced Puppeteers. This
is why they sent borderline lunatic members of their race (such as
the ever famous Nessius) to keep tabs on those errant monkey-boys.
Really. If you think about it, a race like the puppeteers don't really
have much of a reason for dealing with those semi-barbaric humans. What
could they possibly gain? New technology? Phaugh! They move their own
planets! A chance to sample human culture? To them we seem like danger seeking
maniacs! Then add the Kzin and the numbers of wars the humans have been in with
them. What else can it be but manipulation by an outside (alien) force?
Let me know what you think guys!

Comments: Around 1971 I got a coverless Ballantine paperback of the first edition of Ringworld soon after it came out, have just reread it again, and realized: Maybe it's not generally known that in the first edition, Louis goes the wrong way around the Earth. He starts in Greenwich, England (site of his party), goes to bars in Munich and/or Budapest, walks in Cairo, and then dials Tehran (whereupon he ends up in the hotel room with Nessus). I learned later that subsequent editions had corrected this so that Louis travels east to west, which would extend his birthday by more than 24 hours; but I always liked the original choice of cities. Does this site need the original text? (I didn't like the sequel at all and don't care about the third book either.)

Comments: I am very, very happy to find that Larry is not dead. Ringworld throne
should be a pretty good novel, but i think that it will be missing some of that
early Niven taste: the light comedy. It might be Pournelle's influence,
but Larry's last couple of books have been a little Too concerned with
socialism and politics. Am I wrong? Probably. I can't wait to read it, in any
case. By the By, has anyone heard anything about a possible movie of Ringworld and
its sequels? Judging from Twister and other movies, I'd say the silver screen is over-
due for something eyecatching WITH A PLOT. Niven is going to be the Crichton of the
next decade, I hope, with ILM or Dreamworks at his side. LARRY! DONT GIVE IN TO QUICK
DEALS. WAIT FOR KUBRICK!!! OR AT LEAST AVOID JAN DE BONT!!
I am an illustrator waiting for December (grad), and have a slew of
illustrations based on Niven stories, including Relic of the Empire,
A teardrop Falls, and the Soft Weapon. How do I show this to you, man?

Comments: Larry Niven's work is brilliantly conceived and rates up with other great hard SF writers such as Heinlein, clarke and Asimov. I have most of his work including many of the collaborations. The latest Ringworld novel is great news. For the fan who was looking for the Shape of Space, get Convergent Series. All is explained in the intro!

I first read LN when I pinched my Father's battered copy of

I have most of the PURE LN books but some escape me as they

The titles are : ALL THE MYRIAD WAYS
THE FLYING SORCERERS

Comments: My first comment to ANY web site. I've been reading Niven faithfully and delightedly since the seventies and I believe I've read just about everything he's ever produced - even to the point of NOT buying collections of previously published items! Thanks for providing this forum - I will likely be back. For one thing, I am always wondering when the next work will come out - thanks to this site, I now know to expect another Ringworld sequel. Could we coopt Niven into this site ? It would be nice to hear about future projects....

Comments: Be still my beating heart! I Love this place! I've been reading Niven since the late
seventy's when I was only 13. I did notice no mention of
the computer game "Ringworld, Revenge of the Patriarch" from
Tsunami. I got the game back in 1994 and have played it through
It is almost like reading a sequal on Ringworld, your able to
interact with the story. It seemed at the time that there
was going to be another sequal to the game itself. The Game
included a paperback copy of Ringworld, much to my pleasure,
so that when I re-read the book (I've lost count) I can put
away my old dog-eared copy.
By the way, Is there any way to get a JPG or GIF of the cover
art for "Tales of Known Space" the Del Rey copyright Augst 1978.
The cover features a painting done by Rick Sternbach, its a
rendering of the galaxy with a blown up portion of Known Space
showing all sorts of stuff. It it you can see 14 black holes, 2 General Products spacecraft
, Egg shaped Jinx and Ringworld, plus all the other star systems
of known space. The problem is the painting I have is on the cover
of that 1978 book and you can guess its condition, not to mention
the artist says that with it shrunk down like that you will
not beable to really see it all.
Thanks again for a great place to come to!

If you have not read this little known novel by Niven and

Published by DC in about 1990,it is a Green Lantern story,

Niven is one of the first SF books that I ever read (Ringworld), and that's what got me hooked. I didn't even know that there were any pages out here dedicated to him.
Now that I'm hooked, I've started writing (thanks to the fact of both Niven & Asimov's stimulation of my mind) myself, and I came across this page while looking for places to send a manuscript. (If, of course, I ever get that far!)

Comments: Good page - especially as I really like Niven's stuff. IMHO
he's about the most visual SF writer I know.

I'd found the Ringworld images some time back.
I assume they are from the same site I found.

However, there is one missing reference. You should quote
'King David's Spaceship' alongside 'The Mote in God's Eye'.
Its the same universe & time frame and I've enjoyed it a
lot. Check it out! It casts more light on the second empire,
which I wish had more stories. The Pournelle stuff on the
first empire was all very well but the last 2-3 books were
getting a little tedious.

My comment: What a waste of time and money, (my girlfriends time and the money of the University of
Copenhagen who owns this computer). Great idea this Larry Niven page, thought I was all alone in
reading his books YEAH RIGHT! And last a comforting word to those who didnīt like "The gripping hand"
The British title of the sequel to "the mote in gods eye". Dont worry lads, I hateted it too as it was
just an ordinary book, and when you are used to Niven ordinary books are a bore!

Comments: A great site about the works of one of my favorite sf authors. I was introduced to the works of Niven by one of my philosophy instructors in 1971 and have been hooked ever since. I notice you have not reviewed his "Flying Sourcers". This is an excellent exploration of the clash between the scientific and traditional world views. A very humorous and gentle treatment. I highly recommend it to you.

Again, thanks for the excellent site.

Kindest regards from Alberta.

Comments: Saw your question about "Beowolfs Kids" and I have read it. It does not apply to any KNOWN SPACE time line. It is a good sequel to the horror story the three authors put together a few years back titled "The Legecy of Herot". Some of the concepts used (Frozen sleep, Busstard Ramjets, and the like) are common to early space travel, but the basics will be the same as long as the laws of physics hold in this universe. Niven has about five seperate worlds he writes in, the four others (besides Known Space) are Levits time travel stories, the "State" future, which includes Smoke Ring (two books, World out of Time and a Rammer short story) and the Avalon planet colinization series (Herot and Beowolf), and finally, the Co-Diminom (Mote in God's Eye and Gripping Hand) They all are great and I love living in these worlds every chance I get. As you can see, I have been reading Niven ever since I found Inferno at a used book sale back in 1970?? I can not wait for the RINGWORLD THRONE!!!

Comments: Hi! I really like your Known Space page. KS is one of
my favourite future histories. I'm currently trying to
work out a consistent chronology of the stories in the
seven Man-Kzin Wars volumes; most of those aren't by Niven,
of course, but they are still part of the Known Space
universe, so if you're interested I could send you a copy
(if it ever gets worked out -- there are a couple of
inconsistencies I may have to just acknowledge as such!)

By the way, I have a question about "Down in Flames." Your
web page says that the version you provide a link to is
less recent than the one in _N-Space_. What made me
wonder is that one of the differences between the two is
this: the N-Space version has Beowulf Shaeffer drawn into
the adventure by the Brennan-monster, while the one on the
Web has the latter role played by the Truesdale-monster.
Now, at the time Niven and Spinrad conceived the idea for
DIF (i.e., 1968), the first part of _Protector_ had been
written and published (in a 1967 issue of _Galaxy_). The
Brennan-monster appears in that part, but Truesdale hasn't
come on the scene yet. He only shows up in the second part
of the novel, which -- since the whole wasn't published
until 1973 -- I assume (perhaps wrongly) was not yet
written, maybe not yet even dreamed up by Niven. Now, since
the Brennan-monster is dead by the end of _Protector_, and
thererfore could never meet Beowulf Shaeffer, it seems to
me that the "Brennan" version of DIF must have been written
before Niven had decided what was going to happen to
Brennan (i.e. before 1973), and the "Truesdale" version
afterwards. Which would make the "Truesdale" version the
later one.

I hope the above paragraph is decipherable! Anyway, if I'm
all wrong about this, please let me know (gently) ( :) ).
In any case, I think you have a great page there!

Comments: How wonderful to find your corner of cyberspace! As a new net surfer, it looks great to me!

My brother and I had observed that many stories of Larry Niven's had several characters with physical disabilities and so contacted LN for a story for our magazine for persons with physical disabilities. LN responded by submitting a then never-before published short story! As both my brother and I are big LN fans, we were thrilled and honored to have such a prestigious writer represented in our mag. His willingness to contribute to such a small venture (it was the first issue of a home-grown mag) will always be remembered by me. I think he must be a very gracious individual and his time spent to respond to our very small request will always be appreciated.

I was skimming your home page and came across the mention of Beowulf's Children.
This is the sequel to Legacy of Heorot by the same authors.
It is not connected to Known Space and I don't think the link will ever be made.

The setting for both novels is a planet in the Tau Ceti star system which in Known Space is the location of the Plateau
colony. The environments of Plateau and Avalon, (I think that's the colony's name in
Legacy of Heorot but don't quote me), are totally different.

Comments: I don't know how you rate the publications of Larry Niven
such as 1 to 4 stars for several of his stories, but I am
a bit miffed that RINGWORLD is only rated 4 stars. I feel
in my mind that his literary expediture revolves around this
book. It is the final product (so to speak) of a authors
career. I feel that most of his stories (including short
stories) revolve around this publication "RINGWORLD".
Every thing he writes points in this direction, I can't give
you exact examples, but I have been reading his publications
since I don't know when, I have Larry Nivens first published
books 1st editions (Ringworld, World of Patavvs, etc.) Also
have Isacc Asimov's "Pebble In the Sky" 1st edition 1958,or
1957 Hard cover) (no jacket unfortunetly).
Sorry, I just had to mention Isacc Asimov's book that I picked
up at a garage sale for 50 cents. I'm not a book collector or
any thing like that, I enjoy reading SF, have been since I
was 13 (Tarzan of the Apes) now I'm 37 still read SF.

I bought the Children of Beowulf the other day (hardcover) and it's a follow on to The Legacy of Heorot. I haven't finished it but it seems like Niven and group are back into their own style. By the way, I bought a copy of Charles Scheffield's How to Save the World anthology which includes a short piece by Niven. While the book is good, don't buy it just for Niven's piece. It has to be his worst work yet. I was highly disappointed.

Comments: Greetings from across the ditch.

LN is right up there with RAH and HG Wells imho, about
time he had a decent netpage! Good on you.

Hadn't realised Beowulf's Children was out - I take it
it's got a Known Space dimension? Interesting to see
how he works that one.

If you want to contact Tor Books I've come across them on
the net - they have a home page, shouldn't be hard to find.

An idea - I've always had a yen to try a "Man-Kzin Wars"
tale, but as I haven't had anything published I wouldn't
be eligible to try for inclusion; probably not good enough
anyhow. So, what about having a space on your page for
amateur stories in this setting? Dunno how LN would feel
about that, probably wouldn't care but maybe you could
check with him if you have access to him.

Anyway, good on you again.

Comments: Hi. Glad to see a Niven site, he is a long-time favorite. A minor quibble: I think you should list original dates of publication, at least for the novels. I.e., Ringworld was published in 1970 (I think).

An earlier guest's story about meeting Niven tidying up his books reminds me of a story my boss at the bookstore I once worked at told me. This was in the Chicago area, where Gene Wolfe lives. She was an SF fan, and carefully maintained a pretty good SF section, including a copy of The Fifth Head of Cerberus (at that time, not a great seller). One day, she saw a portly, middle-aged man holding that book, near tears. She asked if she could help, he said "No thanks, I'm Gene Wolfe, and I just can't believe someone has a copy of one of my books."

Comments: It's GREAT realizing that there are so many LN fan-atics out there. I've got just about every KS story (and all other LN) so if you have any detail questions, drop me a note. I've always felt there needs to be some type of KS encyclopedia available. Anyone else interested?

Comments: I just lucked out and found this place. I've only been
playing with the internet for a couple of weeks, in the UAH
computer lab, and your page is one reason I plan to get a
modem of my own. I want to hear updates on The Ringworld
Throne!

Comments: Great to see a place where Nivenphiles can meet. Recently
finished Beowulf's Children which I liked very much.
Looking forward to Ringworld Throne.

A nice addition would be a section on what Niven & pals
are currently working on. Pournelle usually throws out
tidbits in his Byte column.

Comments: Larry Niven is in my opinion the best SF writer out there, at least until he stopped writing
the known space series. On that note I have heard a rumor about a third book in the ringworld series.
Anyone know if this is true and when it is being released?

Comments: Loved the on-line Gil The Arm story.

Man of Steele ... was the first Niven I read,
but it was several years before I read him again
(and never looked bacK).

Keep up the good work!

Comments: been a fan of nivens ever since i met this little guy with a backpack at the bookstore at denver's stapleton airpor about 8 years ago.
there he was, straightening out all the niven books, so i said "you are a real fan, aren't you?". he said, "no, I'm the writer" I bought ringworld, he autographed it, and i have been hooked ever since.

Comments: Just quickly browsed through your page. Checked out the Acoustic Gutar Music section. Wish I had the time to add to it. I have a much better version of Dan Fogelberg's "Make Love Stay". I was surprised at not seeing any James Taylor. I found your site while doing a search using the keyword "schematics". With all of the info and topics you have here I will be back someday, I'm sure.

I've already sent you some information on Niven books not
mentioned here, and some tips on Man of Steel, Woman of
Kleenex.

May the Eye of Kdapt shine on you always...
