Format: Paperback
Further installments of the Man Kzin stories of Man Kzin II (and by the way where can I get Man Kzin IV ?) plus one Niven short story.
The Niven short story, "Madness has it's place" is ace. Inventive and thought provoking.
Ingrid, Jonah and their friends and colleagues reappear in "The Asteroid Queen", telling the story of what happened after their interactions with Chuut-Riit.
Saxtorph and the crew of Rover return in "Inconstant Star".
Both of the non-Niven stories (Pournelle & Stirling and Poul Anderson) weave threads of Known space into their stories and do it well.
I felt that the love interest sub-plot in "Inconstant Star" was poor, but with that one exception would recommend this compilation to any Sci-Fi fan.

I said it about all the other Man-Kzin Wars books, and this hasn't changed my mind. Cool. The stories, although from various authors are always really fun, and the Kzinti are nonstop interesting characters.

An enjoyable continuation of the series. 7 Jun. 2001
By James Yanni - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This volume, as did each of the previous two, contains three mid-length stories set in Larry Niven's science fiction alternate-future in which the human race finds itself frequently at war with the Kzin, a race evolved from carnivorous hunting cats instead of from omnivorous monkeys. As in the first volume, the first story is by Niven himself, and is followed by two by other writers writing in his established universe. Each of the stories in this book can be considered a continuation of a story from a previous volume; Niven's follows up his introductory story of the first encounter between humans and Kzinti; the second is a collaboration by Jerry Pournelle and S. M. Stirling, which follows from the story they wrote in an earlier volume, and the third continues from Poul Anderson's previous effort. The only complaint I have is that there was no continuation of the storyline by Dean Ing, which was always my favorite, but I suppose that when there are only three stories per volume, there is not enough room for every author to appear in every book. (In Pournell and Stirling's story, there is even a hint of an answer to a previous question of mine: how DID a race such as the Kzin develop advanced technology in the first place?)

Good Story 21 Jan. 2013

I found this book to be very entertaining. After reading the first book out of sequence, I decided to try to collect the entire series. I'm still working my way through the series.
Good and in and in line with the series 6 Jan. 2013
By Gregory K. Ferrier - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The stories fit and are in line with most of Man-Kzin War books, except the last story which drags in a part of the Ring World foolishness of the tree of life.
right on target 23 Jun. 2014
By John R. Deakins - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Inexpensive older paperbacks from Amazon are a great way to tour this whole series. Only eleven more ant three novels to go.
