    Felinoid aliens with Klingon-like attitudes attack Known Space - humanity must re-learn how to wage war in a hell of a hurry. Entertaining enough, if you're into shared world collaborations. The Kzin are formidable opponents; would be interesting to see this brought to TV/movies.

    An excellent volume in this shared world series. Great SiFi stories set in Larry Niven's "Known Space" setting. Recommended

    This is the fifth in the “Man Kzin Wars” series, and contains two stories. An initial comment: As I read more of these books, the characters, context and back stories become more familiar and the going gets much easier, so that this volume was a faster read.The first, and longer, story, “In the Hall of the Mountain King,” by Jerry Pournelle and S.

    A long running anthology series with stories set during the Man-Kzin Wars in Larry Niven’s Known Space universe. Niven started this thing up because while the Wars were very significant in the history of Known Space, he himself was not adept at writing about conflict. Niven has written some of the stories but most are by other authors. The writing ranges from average to excellent. Recommended if you are a fan of Known Spaceokssboch/?p=1026
