The Man-Kzin Wars is a series of military science fiction short story collections (and is the name of the first collection), as well as the eponymous conflicts between mankind and the Kzinti that they detail. They are set in Larry Niven's Known Space universe; however, Niven himself has only written a small number of the stories. All of the cover art for the books in the series is drawn by Stephen Hickman.

I could imagine how any other scientist might have reacted to that question. She took it calmly, a little sadly ven’t published yet. I can burn the. I can burn the papers. I can clear the computers’ memories. I can’t forget it. But it’s far from finished. And what I’ve got is only part of i. .And we are more years from building such engines?. Oh, yes. If we diverted every scientist and engineer we have away from the defense effort, still years before the first proper experiments.

The powerful Kzin warriors' plans for galactic domination under feline control are turned upside down by the cunning and pesky humans, but the Kzin have come up with a new scheme to achieve their goals, in a science fiction anthology featuring contributions by Larry Niven, Poul Anderson, Paul Chafe, and Hal Colebatch.
  • Once again we have four novellas by four authors in Larry Niven's playground, writing about the ongoing struggle between humanity and the Kzinti, a race of tiger-like sentients who have little respect for non-carnivores like us monkeys, who they think of as merely prey. They're bigger than us, faster than us, stronger than us, tougher than us; the only reason we consistently beat them is that we monkeys are tricky. And they consistently underestimate us. The first, second, and fourth story in this collection are pretty standard for the series; good reads, but nothing spectacular. The third is an interesting anomaly; it doesn't actually involve conflict (at least, not MUCH conflict) between humans and Kzinti; it is on a world which has been re-taken by humans after Kzin held it for some years, and those Kzin who are left on the world function more or less within human society. This actually gives the story enough novelty that I would have rated it higher, except that there's a glaring "plot twist" that the reader can see coming a light-year away, even though it's a shock to the characters; this was trite enough that it dropped the story back to being about on a par with the others. Still fun and interesting, but not really special.

  • After a long hiatus from the Man-Kzin wars, I purchased the Man-Kzin Wars IX. The stories in M-K Wars IX were average at best. Of the 4 stories, the murder mystery was my favorite. The story about the crippled Kzin's last stand started well but deteriorated into a long-winded mutual admiration fest between the antagonists during the battle for Wunderland's liberation. It made as much sense as the Russians negotiating with and praising the positive qualities of the bunkered Germans during the battle for Berlin. The last story needed a good editor to clean it up, especially the beginning, and make it more coherent. IMO, this book is not worth buying and inferior to its predecessors.

  • I came into the Man-Kzin wars way back when the series started. Larry Niven has done a brilliant job of opening the saga to other writers with ever-fresh perspectives on Kzin, other world denizens, ARM and humans. If you're new to this, read #1; you can jump around from there. Most, like this one, are a series of not-so-short stories. I'd rec'd this one, for sure. Fun read (if you don't like hard science Sci-Fi, you won't like much of Niven's stuff other than, maybe, Lucifer's Hammer).

  • Another installment in the Man-Kzin known universe. More adventures are pursued, more mysteries are solved, more plot lines are developed, more stories are told. Gotta love it!!!

  • I've read several of the previous books, but came across this one only recently. I thought the idea of letting other author sap write of the Man-Kzin interaction was brilliant. The alterations in Kzin characteristics balanced against their known dominant patterns of action allowed for considerable depth and variation in these novelettes.

  • very good

  • Classic old school scifi. Enough science and theory, "barely" to keep the geek in me satisfied and a really good story line that dates back many years for me. The Man Kzin wars can and probably will go on for a very long time. Good read for scifi aficionados.

  • Its a collection, so the author's varied. Some were a little long, I thought.
