Overview

The perennially best-selling series set in Larry Niven’s Man-Kzin universe continues with entry #14 including hard-hitting and thought-inducing tales from a host of talented contributors Hal Colebatch, Matthew Joseph Harrington, Alex Hernandez, Jessica Q. Fox, and more. 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.

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.

I've loved the Man-Kzin conflict since the first book and am so glad that other people are able to continue it on. I'm really enjoying the way that each author is evolving the whole relationship. Love, love, love these books.

I normally do not buy a book of short stories so felt deceived that this book is just that. Given the man-kzin series it was a surprise. Some stories were engaging, others dull.

A solid entry in the Man Kzin Wars series. Most stories are set on Wunderland around the first war.

OK. Not as good as earlier books in the series but I will keep reading them as soon as they come out.
