The Best of All Possible Worlds

By Spider Robinson

Rating: 3 stars

Larry Niven opened up his Known Space universe to others to write about a war between Man and the Kzin, a warlike catlike race. This book contains four of the best of these stories. The first two are by Niven himself to introduce the universe and the war but the second two, by Greg Bear and Jerry Pournelle respectively (both co-authored with S. M. Stirling) are arguably the better, not having to set up the exposition with Pournelle’s novella (taking up about half the book) being the best of the bunch. An interesting universe and maybe worth digging into further.
