Praise

“For new readers, there’s fascinating adventure in plenitude. For old fans of Niven’s Known Space series, or of the original volume, there are all the fine, characteristic touches that delight us Niven fans, and which support his reputation for uncommon wittiness and fast narrative pace.”Chicago Sun-Times

The Ringworld Engineers has all the imaginativeness, convincing detail, and narrative vivacity that have come to be associated with the works of Larry Niven. Furthermore, it answers a lot of questions that have been tantalizing his readers for a long time. Most highly recommended!”—Paul Anderson

“When I finished The Ringworld Engineers, I cleared my calendar for a week, sat down, and reread every word of the Known Space cycle from scratch, then reread The Ringworld Engineers. It was worth the effort, and left me staggered by the breadth and scope of Larry’s vision. . . . If you count yourself as a true friend of Larry Niven, race right out and get this one.”Analog Science Fiction Magazine

“Another fine masterpiece from the master of science fiction . . . The coming conquest of space has always been a central myth of science fiction, and Larry Niven’s future worlds have made the most of it. The Ringworld itself is a dazzling notion, carrying the future evolution of technology about as far as possible.”—Jack Williamson

“Fans of the original novel will not be disappointed, and newcomers will have no trouble following the plot, in this adventurous exploration of a mind-boggling landscape. Despite the years that have passed in the lives of both the character and the author, this is a remarkably seamless continuation of the first book. Niven’s style is still as unobtrusive and efficient, his speculative science as clever, his alien race as intriguing, and his story’s resolution as satisfying as ever.”Publishers Weekly
