Come back to the Ringworld . . . the most astonishing feat of engineering ever encountered.  A place of untold technological wonders, home to a myriad humanoid races, and world of some of the most beloved science fiction stories ever written!

The human, Louis Wu; the puppeteer known as the Hindmost; Acolyte, son of the Kzin called Chmeee . . . legendary beings brought together once again in the defense of the Ringworld. Something is going on with the Protectors. Incoming spacecraft are being destroyed before they can reach the Ringworld.  Vampires are massing. And the Ghouls have their own agenda--if anyone dares approach them to learn.

Each race on the Ringworld has always had its own Protector. Now it looks as if the Ringworld itself needs a Protector. But who will sit on the Ringworld Throne?

"Niven's work has been an intriguing and consistent universe, and this book is the keystone of the arch. . . . [His] technique is wonderfully polished, his characters and their situations are nicely drawn . . . wraps up (maybe) a corner of a very interesting universe."
--San Diego Union-Tribune

Review:

In Ringworld and Ringworld Engineers Larry Niven created Known Space, a universe in the distant future with a distinctive and complicated history. The center of this universe is Ringworld, an expansive hoop-shaped relic 1 million miles across and 600 million miles in circumference that is home to some 30 trillion diverse inhabitants. As in his past novels, Niven's characters in The Ringworld Throne spend their time unraveling the complex problems posed by their society.

From the Publisher:

Long ago and far away, Larry Niven intended to write a big book for Del Rey. It was to continue another series, not Ringworld, and eventually it became clear that this new book just wasn't coming to life for him. So there we were in Florida, walking from the hotel to the convention center, when Larry worriedly confessed to me that the book wasn't happening. "You know," I said understandingly, "it doesn't have to be this particular book. If you wanted to write a different 'big' book, that would be okay. Say, another Ringworld book." (Okay, so I was being a bit manipulative!) I didn't think anything would come of that--until Barbara Hambly talked Larry into doing a Ringworld story for her vampire anthology and the rest is history.
                        --Shelly Shapiro, Executive Editor
