Cuando EL MARTILLO DE LUCIFER, el cometa gigante, choco contra la Tierra, hizo pedazos la civilizacion. Los dias felices habian terminado. Estaban viviendo el fin del mundo. Los terremotos eran tan fuertes que no podian medirse con la escala de Ritcher. Las olas marinas alcanzaban alturas incalculables. Las ciudades se convirtieron en oceanos, y los oceanos en nubes. Era el principio de la nueva Edad del Hielo. Y el final de los gobiernos, los planes, los hospitales y el derecho. Y sobre ellos, igual que otro martillo del demonio, la mas terrible seleccion del hombre hecha por el hombre que jamas se habia...

For decades, the spacefaring species of Known Space have battled over the largest artifact — and grandest prize — in the galaxy: the all-but-limitless resources and technology of the Ringworld. 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 Ringworld 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 of Worlds go far beyond even the onrushing armadas: Adventurer Louis Wu and the exiled Puppeteer known only as Hindmost, marooned together for more than a decade, escaped from the...

'Flash Crowd' is a 1973 novella by science fiction author Larry Niven, one of a series about the social consequence of inventing an instantaneous, practically free transfer booth that could take one anywhere on Earth in milliseconds. 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. In various other books, for example Ringworld, Niven suggests that easy transportation might be disruptive to traditional behavior and open the way for new forms of parties, spontaneous congregations, or shopping trips around...

Sulla scia di Robert Heinlein e di Isaac Asimov, Larry Niven ha costruito una serie di racconti e romanzi che costituiscono un coerente e dettagliato affresco dell’avvenire dell’uomo nello spazio. I Burattinai, premio Hugo e Nebula nel 1971, rappresenta l’apice narrativo di questa magnifica storia futura e la inconfutabile dimostrazione della grandezza di Niven come autore della migliore fantascienza tecnologica. Qui Niven ci narra la storia del viaggio esplorativo organizzato dalla buffissima e misteriosa razza dei “burattinai” (specie di centauri paranoici con tre gambe, senza testa, e con due braccia su cui si ergono due busti separati) con la complicita di alcuni terrestri verso il Mondo ad Anello, un gigantesco anello che orbita intorno a una stella lontana, con...

Ringworld’s Children returns series protagonist Louis Wu to the titular world. Louis and his friend The Hindmost, an alien of the Pierson’s puppeteer race, are prisoners of the Ghoul protector Tunesmith, a Ringworld native, who is deliberately provoking the warships that surround his world. All 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: dissolved by antimatter weapons. The Ringworld series is so complex and ambitious that Ringworld’s Children opens with a glossary and a cast of characters, inclusions that even many Known Space fans will need. Newcomers to Niven’s artificial planet should start with...

The Perfect Crime... The invention of displacement booths produced one hell of a crime wave. If a man in; say, Hawaii could commit murder in, say, Chicago and be back in the time it would take him to visit the men’s room, he would have a perfect alibi. And the police would have a problem. But that’s only one of the problems found in Larry Niven’s universe. In this collection of stories all about teleportation, deep space, black holes, artificial worlds - Hole in Space, a...

Like much of Niven's work, the story is heavily influenced by the setting: a gas torus, a ring of air around a neutron star. 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 orbit around Voy. This orbiting air forms a ring known as the Gas Torus. The Gas Torus is huge — one million kilometers thick — but most of it is too thin to be habitable. 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. There is no “ground” in the Smoke Ring; it is a world consisting entirely of sky. Thus, most animals can fly, even the fish. Furthermore, since...
