Format: Mass Market Paperback
Beowulf Schaeffer is the recurring pilot-hero of many of Niven's "Known Space" stories, including some of his most famous, like "Neutron Star". In this volume they are collected and put in order, with a framing sequence. An indisputable aid to understanding Niven's other "known space" works, like RINGWORLD, and immense fun in its own right. Here you first meet the Puppeteers, you first find out the galaxy is exploding, you first meet the Outsiders and other aliens. (Niven does the best aliens in the biz. A few might cattily say his aliens are better than his humans.) A fascinating future presented by one of the best sf writers still writing.

For fans of Niven's other "Known Space" novels and short stories, this Beowulf Schaeffer collection is a must. It wasn't until finishing "Crashlander" that I realized just exactly who Louis Wu is. Wu (the central character of the "Ringworld" novels) doesn't appear directly in "Crashlander," but he is mentioned in a manner that makes his origins clear. Classic work from one of the masters.

This wonderful collection puts all the Beowulf Shaeffer stories into one volume, including a new story. It also tells the orgins of Louis Wu of ringworld, elaborates on Puppeteers and the fate of the galaxy. A must read for any Niven fan.

... are the Beowulf Shaeffer stories, and they're all here. As a long time Larry Niven fan, the title of this book told me all I needed to know; this is a collection of some of his finest short stories, starting with perhaps the greatest of them all, "Neutron Star." As far as I know, the last standalone story, "Procrustes," is only published here in book form, and that and the connecting narrative make this an essential read for any fan of Larry Niven.
