Product Details


“Niven’s work has been an intriguing and consistent universe, and this book is the keystone of the arch. . . . [His] technique is wonderfully polished, his characters and their situations are nicely drawn . . . wraps up (maybe) a corner of a very interesting universe.”San Diego Union-Tribune

Author Essay

Long ago and far away, Larry Niven intended to write a big book for Del Rey.  It was to continue another series, not Ringworld, and eventually it became clear that this new book just wasn’t coming to life for him.  So there we were in Florida, walking from the hotel to the convention center, when Larry worriedly confessed to me that the book wasn’t happening.  "You know," I said understandingly, "it doesn’t have to be this particular book.  If you wanted to write a different ‘big’ book, that would be okay.  Say, another Ringworld book."  (Okay, so I was being a bit manipulative!)  I didn’t think anything would come of that–until Barbara Hambly talked Larry into doing a Ringworld story for her vampire anthology and the rest is history.
