Overview

The chartered Zarathustra Company had it all their way. Their charter was for a Class III uninhabited planet, which Zarathustra was, and it meant they owned the planet lock stock and barrel. They exploited it, developed it and reaped the huge profits from it without interference from the Colonial Government. Then Jack Holloway, a sunstone prospector, appeared on the scene with his family of Fuzzies and the passionate conviction that they were not cute animals but little people.Henry Beam Piper (March 23, 1904 - c. November 6, 1964) was an American science fiction author. He wrote many short stories and several novels. He is best known for his extensive Terro-Human Future History series of stories and a shorter series of "Paratime" alternate history tales.
He wrote under the name H. Beam Piper. Another source gives his name as "Horace Beam Piper" and a different date of death. His gravestone says "Henry Beam Piper". Piper himself may have been the source of part of the confusion; he told people the H stood for Horace, encouraging the assumption that he used the initial because he disliked his name.

A decent story about the definition of sentience. My biggest pet peeve is that even the "good guys" treat the fuzzies more like pets than sentient beings, yet that is never addressed in the story.

Piper made it clear how important it will be when we finally find other life in the universe. If they are more advanced than are we, I hope they treat us better than the Fuzzies were initially treated.

A classic and not to be overlooked. Brilliant, charming and relevant today as it was when written.
