Book Description

12 Feb 2013 Man-Kzin Wars (Book 13)
Larry Niven's bestselling Man-Kzin series continues! The kzin, formerly invincible conquerors of all they encountered, had a hard time dealing with their ignominious defeat by the leaf-eating humans. Some secretly hatched schemes for a rematch, others concentrated on gathering power within the kzin hierarchy, and some shamefully cooperated with the contemptible humans, though often for hidden motives. In war and in uneasy peace, kzin and humans continue their adventures with a masterful addition to the Man-Kzin Wars shared universe created by multiple New York Times bestseller, incomparable tale-spinner, and Nebula- and five-time Hugo-Award-winner, Larry Niven. Featuring stories by Jane Lindskold, Charles E. Gannon, Hal Colebatch, and more.

His Known Space series, from which the highly successful Man-Kzin Wars books derive, is a landmark of modern science fiction, rating favorable comparison to Heinlein's Future History series and Asimov's Foundation series.

A fun romp for those, like me, who enjoy the Man-Kzin Wars series. Nothing startlingly new, just solid fun reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars The beat goes on... 9 May 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Those who love Larry Niven's Known Space novels, as well as all those who have read the previous twelve (yup! twelve) will find XIII very satisfying. New authors can't seem to get enough of playing in Larry's meadow.

5.0 out of 5 stars Man-Kzin Wars 21 Feb 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Some quite brilliant stories in this one, I have read all of these Man-Kzin books and this is one of the best. I am also re-reading the earlier books as the whole series is quite brilliant, fascinating to see the different treatment from a wide range of authors

5.0 out of 5 stars More of known space, who can object ? 3 Jun 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The first story, misunderstanding" by Hal Colebatch & Jessica Q. Fox is about a contact between a Kzin scoutship and an(other) advanced alien race, the Dilillipsans. The story is ment to be funny, though at times I can't help feeling 'it' tries too hard. But in the end I had a smile on my face when I finished it and it was entertaining enough.

The other stories are more in line with classic man-kzin wars stories.

One of my favorites is "Bound for the Promised Land", a kzin-telepath 'defects' after he finds three sapient kzinretts and a telepath kitten in a euh... 'cathouse'

I truly enjoyed Pick of the litter, two type of teeth, Tomcat tactics and 'at the gates' ...

In the end, Zeno's Roulette is the only story (out of 7) that couldn't really convince me. It has slaver technology in it, a puppeteer, Kzin, Jinxians, all the ingredients for a good known-space short story but it just doesn't deliver.
And I certainly did not connect to the characters in the story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good, but beware it is a LARGE paperback! 16 Jun 2012
By Chris
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
If you've bought earlier Man-Kzin Wars books, then you should pretty-much known what to expect. If you liked earlier volumes, then this is worth buying too!

BUT BEWARE that this "paperback" volume is huge - it is as large as a hardback. I buy paperbacks because they are small & easy to store, so this is a bit of a negative for me (I shall have to buy it again when it comes out as a proper paperback). However, I have left it at 5 stars since the content is good - I just would have liked to have known what I was buying (who bothers to check the dimensions of a book?!?).
