Overview

The perennially best-selling series set in Larry Niven’s Man-Kzin universe continues with entry #13 including hard-hitting and thought-inducing tales from a host of talented contributors. The catlike alien kzin, formerly invincible conquerors of all they encountered, must learn to compromise with humans if they wish to survive and prosper once again as a species.

Alex Hernandez lives in South Florida with his wife and daughter. He is a librarian, with an M.A. from the University of South Florida. Hernandez began as a science fiction webcomics creator before moving on to prose. He spends his free time reading, photographing Florida's wetlands, and running.

Larry Niven’s bestselling Man-Kzin series continues! The kzin, formerly invincible conquerors of all they encountered, had a hard time dealing with their ignominious defeat by the leaf-eating humans. Some secretly hatched schemes for a rematch, others concentrated on gathering power within the kzin hierarchy, and some shamefully cooperated with the contemptible humans, though often for hidden motives. In war and in uneasy peace, kzin and humans continue their adventures with a masterful addition to the Man-Kzin Wars shared universe created by multiple New York Times best-seller, incomparable tale-spinner, and Nebula- and five-time Hugo-Award-winner, Larry Niven. Stories by Jane Lindskold, Charles E. Gannon, Bud Sparhawk, and more.
