Contrary to what the previous reviewer says, these books ARE available in the UK! At Amazon! Thank goodness we have it! Turning to the stories themselves, yes, good rip-roaring adventure, the first with a touch of the Indian frontier of Kipling (who is named as an off-stage character) John Masters and the young Churchill, before we move off into briefly, a sort of Brave New world, a doomed semi-paradise, and then into deep space. Suspense, sex, gun-play from muskets to lasers, politico-philosophy. The three stories add up, oddly enough, to a strong and coherent whole, the last sentence in the book fulfilling the process that began with the first, ending on an oddly positive note. Each story shows the Kzin as alien but also shows their points of contact with humans, and at times shows events through their eyes with some sympathy. And in between all the action and adventure anyone could want!

Three snapshots of the wars. Hal Colebatch's "The Colonel's Tiger" is parrticularly impressive, a blend of Gothic horror story, hard SF, Victorian detective story and a hint of Kipling. The three stories cover the wars from first contact to the first appointment of a humble and nameless Kzin as "Ambassador". All well-written, fast moving and with strong believeable characters, human and Kzin. A must for all fans of the series!

This has completed my series of 'Man-Kzin Wars' anthologies and is a great read (for fans of Larry Niven). Ordering was easy, the book arrived promptly and is in good condition. Usual smooth service.
