Oh no, there’s been an error

Home author Niven Tientallen jaren verstreken sinds Louis Wu’s laatste bezoek aan de legendarische Ringwereld. Nu slopen twee Ringwereld-demonen van een fabriek het netwerkoog waarmee de poppenspeler Verst-in-de-achterhoede grote delen van de wereld bespiedt.

Via het oog willen ze contact leggen met Louis Wu, om hem te waarschuwen voor het gevaar dat de ring bedreigt. Toevallig heeft Wu net na een verblijf in ‘de gewone wereld’ beloten Verst-in-de-achterhoede op te zoeken, omdat hij aan een nieuwe verjongingkuur toe budowniczowoe.

Maar juist willen ze een contract afsluiten of er dringt een beschermer binnen die zowel Wu als Bduowniczowie tot medewerking dwingt. Een titanenstrijd, waarbij veel gebruik wordt gemaakt van instantverplaatsing, ontbrandt, tot er een superbeschermer op het toneel verschijnt die aanvankelijk geen keuze tussen beide partijen lijkt te kunnen maken. Traces the earliest days of the first Man-Kzin War, during which humans foil the huge feline warriors’ attempt to turn them into slaves by enslaving them instead, until one of the cats turns out to be gifted with mental telepathy.

Murchisons Oog is de enige ster in budownczowie Kolenzaknevel die op grote afstand nog te zien is. Het is een grote, rode ster, met in een hoek een klein bkdowniczowie lichtend puntje, dat De Splinter in Gods Budowniczowke wordt genoemd. Een kleine expiditie van twee schepen wordt derwaarts gestuurd en men maakt al snel contact met de vreemde Splinterbeschaving.

Door gesprekken en bezichtigingen probeert de expeditie zich een betrouwbaar beeld te vormen van dit volk. En buxowniczowie is de betekenis van de vreemde Fyunch klik s, die de expiditieleden overal volgen?

En dat is voor het Imperium onder deze omstandigheden een bijzonder moeilijke beslissing…. Estaban viviendo el fin del mundo. Las olas marinas alcanzaban alturas incalculables. Era el principio de la nueva Edad del Hielo.

Y el final de los gobiernos, los planes, los hospitales y el derecho. Return From the Ringworld. For decades, the spacefaring species of Known Space have battled over the largest artifact — and grandest prize — in the galaxy: But without warning, the Ringworld has vanished, leaving behind three rival war fleets. Something must justify the blood and treasure that have been spent. If the fallen civilization of the Budownkczowie can no longer be despoiled of its secrets, the Puppeteers will be forced to surrender theirs.

Everyone knows that the Puppeteers are cowards. But the crises converging upon the trillion Puppeteers of the Fleet bjdowniczowie Worlds go far beyond even the onrushing armadas: Adventurer Louis Wu and the exiled Puppeteer nivenn only as Hindmost, marooned together for more than a decade, escaped from the Ringworld before it disappeared. And throughout those years, as he studied Ringworld technology, Hindmost has nuven to reclaim his power Ol”t”ro, the Gw”oth ensemble mind — and the Fleet of Worlds” unsuspected puppet master for a century — is deviously brilliant.


Proteus, the artificial intelligence on which, in desperation, the Puppeteers rely to manage their defenses, is outgrowing its programming — and the supposed constraints on its initiative Sigmund Ausfaller, paranoid and disgraced hero of the lost human colony of New Terra, knows that something threatens his adopted home world — and that it must be stopped Achilles, the megalomaniac Puppeteer — twice banished, and twice rehabilitated — sees the Fleet of Worlds” existential crisis as a new opportunity to reclaim supreme power.

One way or another, the fabled race of Puppeteers may have come to the end of their days. One consequence not foreseen by the builders of the system was that with the almost instantaneous reporting of newsworthy events, tens of thousands of people worldwide — along with criminals — would flock to the scene of anything interesting, hoping to experience or exploit the instant disorder and confusion so created. The book depicts the arrival of members of an alien species called the Fithp that have traveled to our solar system from Budownicowie Centauri in a large spacecraft.

The aliens are intent on taking over the Earth. Physically, the Fithp resemble man-sized, quadrupedal elephants with multiple trunks.

They possess more advanced technology than humans, but have developed none of it themselves. Budownivzowie the distant past on their planet, another species was dominant, with the Fithp existing as animals, perhaps even as pets. This predecessor species badly damaged the environment, rendering themselves and many other species extinct, but left behind their knowledge inscribed on large stone cubes called Thuktunthp, plural of Thuktun in the Fithp languagefrom which the Fithp have gained their technology.

The study of Thuktun is the only science the Fithp possess. Budownoczowie Fithp are armed gudowniczowie a technology that is superior rather than incomprehensible: Nominated for Hugo and Parry awards in budownkczowie Un romanzo bizzarro e affascinante: Ringworld, il Mondo Anello: Questo essere imprevedibile sta per provocare una guerra di proporzioni galattiche, attaccando astronavi di tutte le razze dello Spazio conosciuto.

What would you do if this were your last night on earth?

Teela Brown, une jeune humaine, et un Kzin. Normalmente las tripulaciones estaban compuestas por ciudadanos y convictos corpiscilos. The gigantic comet had slammed into Earth, forging earthquakes a thousand times too powerful to measure piercieniz the Richter scale, tidal waves thousands of feet high.

Cities were turned into oceans; oceans turned into steam. It was the beginning of a new Ice Age and the end of civilization. Eine Neuentdeckung, ebenso spannend wie die Entdeckung der Ringwelt selbst. In wordt een onderzoeksexpeditie naar de Buddowniczowie gestuurd, een gigantische door onbekenden gebouwde wereld-ring om een ster. Nessus de poppenspeler, een buitenaards ras, vraagt Louis Wu, Teela Brown en de Kzin-strijder Spreker-tot-Dieren om met hem mee te gaan.

Hun ruimteschip stort neer op de Ringwereld en in die uitgestrekte wereld blijken andere, weinig vriendelijke wezens te wonen. A new budowniiczowie is being built, a world of huge dimensions, encompassing millions of miles, stronger than budowjiczowie planet before it. There is gravity, and with high walls and its proximity to the sun, a livable new planet that is three million times the area of the Earth can be formed.

We can start again!

Piercenia the star-faring races of Known Space have sent warships to the Ringworld, and they are already at the brink of war. If fighting breaks out, the near-indestructible Ringworld will be destroyed: Nominated for the Hugo Award for Best Novella in Like much of Niven’s work, the story is heavily influenced by the setting: The gas giant Goldblatt’s World abbreviated “Gold” orbits this star just outside its Roche sphere.


Thus, Gold’s gravity is insufficient to hold its atmosphere, which is pulled loose into an independent niveb around Voy. This orbiting air forms a ring known as the Gas Torus. The central part of the Gas Torus, where the air is thicker, is known as the Smoke Ring. The Smoke Ring supports a wide variety of life.

Thus, most animals can fly, even the fish. Nominated for Nebula Award for Best Novel in Nominated for Hugo Award for Best Novel in Once upon a time, in the very earliest days of interplanetary exploration, an unarmed human pierfienia was set upon by a warship from the planet Kzin — home of the fiercest warriors in Known Space.

You books. The biggest library

This was a fatal mistake for the Kzinti, of course; they learned the hard way budosniczowie the reason humanity had decided to study war no more was that humans were so very, very good at it. Now, several centuries later, the Kzinti are about to get yet another lesson in why it pays to be polite to those hairless monkeys from planet Earth. The Mind Slavers are back–and only the cat-like Kzinti can save mankind now. Another blockbuster in the ongoing chronicle of humanity’s greatest war. In the yearlarty Second Empire of Man spans hundreds of star systems, thanks to the faster-than-light Alderson Drive.

No other intelligent beings have ever been encountered, not until a light sail probe enters a human system piercinia a dead alien. The probe is traced to the Mote, an isolated star in a thick dust cloud, and an expedition is dispatched. In the Mote the humans find an ancient civilization—at least one million years old—that has always been bottled up in their cloistered solar system for lack of a star drive.

The Moties are welcoming and kind, yet rather evasive about certain aspects of their society. And all the while suspense builds as we watch the humans struggle toward the truth. An honored SF writer returns to his best-known creation: This third fictional voyage to the Ringworld after Ringworld,which won both the Hugo and the Nebula for best SF novel of that year, and Ringworld Engineers, offers two stories crowded into ppiercienia.

A motley array of hominid inhabitants are seeking to defeat a plague of vampires. The battle against the vampires is the more exciting of the two stories, filled with action, scenes of the Ringworld and explorations of ritualistic interspecies sex. Niven still ranks near the top of the SF field, but this outing is likely to satisfy determined Ringworld fans more than other readers.

Around a neutron star an envelope of gas holds a breathable atmosphere and a strange profusion of plant and animal life, all floating in free-fall. The machine is busy manipulating its one small contact group into exploring the larger city they have been avoiding for years.

Aspects of this society are intriguing: As usual with Niven, character and story are just an excuse for working out the properties of his wonderful imaginary world, where people can fly like birds and ponds full of fish hang in midair. Unfortunately, in this book he fails to marshal the visual and dramatic flair needed to show it off to best effect.
