Loved it 30 years ago, still love it
I loved this one 30 years ago and now I am going to hope they come out with this for the Nook in a 3 volume set....
Anyone of any age can read this, and it is so captivating.

A story you will never grow tired of re-reading
It is amazing to think that a book written nearly 40 years ago still captivates me every time I read it...I guess that is why they call it a classic! This is the way science fiction and most fiction in general should have went.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

The Type of Story You Want to Read to Your Kids
These are wonderful stories that children will love. Writen during the '60s, these books don't contain any of things that make some other Science Fiction books undesirable. These delightful, heartwarming stories have been out of print for too long. An excellent read for children and adults alike.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

How Do You Know if a Fuzzy is Intelligent?
H. Beam Piper's Fuzzy novels, Little Fuzzy (first published in 1962), Fuzzy Sapiens (first published in 1964), and Fuzzies and Other People (first published in 1984), are perhaps the best treatment ever of the nature of intelligence in science-fiction. The three novels deal with the assorted legal and political challenges which occur in the aftermath of the discovery of the Fuzzies--small, cute, furry humanoids--by human settlers on the planet Zarathustra. Part crime drama, part space opera, Piper's novels remain a joy to read even though many of their early-1960's technological and cultural accouterments are a bit outdated. Interestingly, the third novel in the Fuzzies series, published posthumously, appeared after the publication of two 'authorized' sequels penned by other authors: William Tuning's Fuzzy Bones (1981) and Ardath Mayhar's Fuzzy Odyssey (1982). Along with Fuzzies and Other People, these three novels constitute three possible outcomes for the Fuzzy 'Trilogy' which is itself only part of a larger Future History portrayed by Piper in four other novels: Four-Day Planet (1961), Uller Uprising (1952), Cosmic Computer (1958), and Space Viking (1962); and several short stories published between 1957 and 1962 and collected in two anthologies, Federation and Empire, edited by John F. Carr.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
