About this title

Synopsis:

The sequel to N-Space

Playgrounds of the Mind captures the startling range and variety of Larry Niven's spectacular career, from bestselling novels such as Lucifer's Hammer and The Ringworld Engineers, from his classic short stories of science fiction and fantasy, from his thought-provoking essays and non-fiction, from his innovative and seldom-seen work in comics (on such projects as The Green Lantern Bible), to an advance look at Larry Niven's upcoming projects.

Like N-Space, Playgrounds of the Mind is a feast for Niven's millions of fans-and an impressive tribute to the man Arthur C. Clarke called his "favorite writer."

From the Back Cover:

"A writer of supreme talent"-Tom Clancy

"Grand entertainment!"-Kirkus Reviews

"Great fun... Kudos to the publishers for producing such and enjoyable book."-Locus

"Niven's most representative work.... Highly recommended."-Booklist

"Many of these stories are acknowledged classics...an excellent volume for confirmed fans or new readers alike."-Science Fiction Chronicle

"This is a great collection for those few readers (is there anybody?) unfamiliar with one of the genre's giants. For the rest of us, we can revisit Wunderland, Jinx, We Made It, or the rest of 'known space.' ...Playgrounds is a must for any SF library."-Rave Reviews
