Overview

"The first colonists from Earth named the planet Wunderland. Generations later, the felinoid alien invaders called kzin came and turned it into hell...

Touched on in other accounts of the Man-Kzin wars, here for the first time is the decades-long saga of humankind's victorious Battle for Wunderland:

How the Wunderlanders first learned of the kzin attacks on Earth by slow-as-light communications, barely in time to prepare to fight back.

How the valiant human defenders turned to guerilla warfare in the Wunderland jungles and caves after the feline warrior race had destroyed or seized the cities.

How, after the war ended in ignominious defeat for the Kzin, some humans and kzin worked for good will between the two species - their work complicated by humans wanting revenge and Kzin who still saw humans as a somewhat annoying food source.

And how a human-kzin team was sent to investigate a mysterious asteroid and found a threat not only to both species, but to the entire galaxy. The humans wanted to destroy it, but the kzin saw an opportunity to conquer the human worlds. The only hope was a kzin telepath raised by humans from a cub. Which side would he choose, his Inner Monkey or his war-cat heritage?

Meet the Author

Larry Niven has authored many New York Times bestsellers, both alone The Integral Trees , The Smoke Ring, The Ringworld Throne and in collaboration with Jerry Pournelle The Mote in God's Eye, Lucifer's Hammer, Footfall. His Known Space series, from which the fabulously successful Man-Kzin Wars books derive, is a landmark of modern science fiction, as popular as Heinlein's Future History series and Asimov's Foundation series. When Arthur C. Clarke appeared on a talk show and was asked to name his favorite science fiction writer, he immediately answered "Larry Niven." Winner of a Nebula award and five Hugo awards, Niven is among the foremost SF writers of the new century. His latest novels are Rainbow Mars Tor and The Burning City, with Jerry Pournelle Pocket.

Hal Colebatch has had stories in previous volumes of the Man-Kzin Wars series. His recent book, Blair's Britain, was selected by the London Spectator's Taki as a book of the year. He has also written mainstream fiction, biographies, plays, poetry, and several hundred articles. He has a Ph.D. in Political Science, and has been an advisor to two Australian Federal Ministers. He practices law in a suburb of Perth, Australia, where he lives with his wife and two stepchildren.

    Four great stories make a great saga!

    These four stories (plus Hal Colebatch's three earlier stories in the Man-Kzin Wars, esp. 'His Sergeant's Honour' in M-K IX) make a terriffic account of the decades-long battle between humans and the feline Kzinti. Non-stop action, and believable and sympathetic characters - both human and Kzin. Several moments, like the end of the second story, 'The Corporal in the Caves,' and 'Peter Robinson,' the last, are deeply moving. These stories have the haunting, unforgettable quality of the truly great tales. I am sure they are destined to be classics.
