Arthur C. Clarke was once asked to name his favorite writer.
His answer was "Larry Niven." Countless others agree. The
Baltimore Sun and Kirkus Reviews have both dubbed
Niven "the premier writer of hard SF," and Gregory Benford
has hailed him as "the paradigm of SF personality of the
last several decades."
Now Larry Niven presents us
with his undisputed masterwork. N-Space contains,
very simply, the best SF of his career--marvelous fiction, a
wealth of anecdotes and gossip, plus Niven's own special
brand of wit and excitement.
*Excerpts from some of Niven's most loved novels,
including The World of Ptavvs, a Gift from Earth,
Ringworld, and The Mote in God's Eye
*His bets short fiction, including "Bordered in Black," "The
Fourth Profession," "Madness Has Its Place," and many others
*Quips like the ever growing list of "Niven's Laws"
*Notes from Niven describing his inspirations and building
blocks for his writing.
*And an introduction by Tom Clancy, one of Niven's biggest fans.
