About the Author

Born April 30, 1938 in Los Angeles, California. Attended California Institute of Technology; flunked out after discovering a book store jammed with used science fiction magazines. Graduated Washburn University, Kansas, June 1962: BA in Mathematics with a Minor in Psychology, and later received an honorary doctorate in Letters from Washburn. Interests: Science fiction conventions, role playing games, AAAS meetings and other gatherings of people at the cutting edges of science. Comics. Filk singing. Yoga and other approaches to longevity. Moving mankind into space by any means, but particularly by making space endeavors attractive to commercial interests. Several times we’ve hosted The Citizens Advisory Council for a National Space Policy. I grew up with dogs. I live with a cat, and borrow dogs to hike with. I have passing acquaintance with raccoons and ferrets. Associating with nonhumans has certainly gained me insight into alien intelligences. www.larryniven.net

A collection of short stories by Larry Niven. I would say it is quite different from his normal stuff and regardless what you think of his politics this is separate from those and worth reading regardless. Some classic short segments in here - the famous "Man of Steel, woman of Kleenex" springs to mind, although the two discussion on the therory of teleportation and time travel are also an interesting read.Some excellent short stories too, if a little predictable at times.All in all a good average book, well worth a read but nothing to get too excited about.

A good mix of short stories, all thought provoking in their own way.
