[Read by Tom Parker - aka - Grover Gardner]
The artifact is a vast circular ribbon of matter, some 180 million miles across, with a sun at its center. Pierson's puppeteers--strange, three-legged, two-headed aliens--discovered this ''Ringworld'' in a hitherto unexplored part of the galaxy. Curious about the immense structure, but frightened by the prospect of meeting the builders, they set about assembling a team to explore it:
-Louis Wu, human -- old and bored with having lived too fully for too many years, seeking an adventure, and all too capable of handling it.
-Nessus, puppeteer -- a trembling coward from a species with an inbuilt survival pattern of nonviolence. This particular puppeteer, however, is insane.
-Speaker-to-Animals, kzin -- large, orange-furred, and carnivorous. The kzin are one of the most savage life-forms known.
The party's expedition, however, goes disastrously wrong when their ship crash-lands and its motley crew faces a daunting trek across thousands of miles of Ringworld territory.

Cover Art: Chris Moore (illustrator). 1973 Edition. © 1970: 1st in the 'Ringworld' series of books. 16th printing of 1973 edition:- Review(s): Tremendous acclaim for Larry Niven's brilliant award-winning epic of deep-space adventure: "'Ringworld is the best of the newest wave, the return to classical hard-science fiction of the kind popular in the Golden Age. Niven's imagination is 3-D and detailed, and his style is lucid and appealing" - Frederik Pohl / "Magnificent" - James Blish / "Larry Niven's imagination takes an astronomical leap with the creation of 'Ringworld' in which he postulates a solar satellite which actually encircles its sun. What more could any SF fan ask for? - Oxford Mail / "Totally believable. One is impressed most by Mr Niven's universe. And the way he exploits vast spaces, dizzying mathematics, and huge units of time and matter" - The Observer / "Enthralling" - The Scotsman:- (original cost £3.50). Seller Inventory # 11.001.00833
