Overview

It's Howling Time in Known Space again!

Back to the Frontlines of the Top Selling Space War in All of Science Fiction.

The first colonists from Earth named the planet Wunderland. Generations later, the felinoid invaders called Kzin came and turned it into a hell for humans. Touched on in other accounts of the Man-Kzin wars, here for the first time is the decades-long saga of Wunderland: How the Wunderlanders first learned of the Kzin attacks on Earth by slower-than-light communications, barely in time to prepare to fight back. How valiant human defenders turned to guerilla warfare in the Wunderland jungles and caves after the feline warrior race had destroyed or seized the cities. And what happened after the Kzin suffered an ignominous defeat. Many humans wanted revenge and many Kzin still saw humans as just an annoying food source. Was the war really over. . .

"The Wunder War" tells of the occupation of the human colony on Wunderland in the Alpha Centauri system by the carnivorous, super-aggressive kzinti.

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.
