Welcome to the hottest pocket in Larry Niven's Known Space: the time of the assault on pacifist humanity by berserker felinoids from the planet Kzin. This time humanity's representatives to the Warrior Race are Donald Kingsbury, Greg Bear, and Steve Stirling. As is traditional in this war for species survival, in all cases 'monkey cleverness' (i.e., human cunning) is more than a match for felinoid ferocity. But as is also traditional, victory never comes cheap to those out on the sharp edge of the Man-Kzin Wars.
Contains a short novel, THE SURVIVOR, by Donald Kingsbury; also the short story THE MAN WHO WOULD BE KZIN by Greg Bear and S.M. Stirling.

The main 'short story' in this book is about 245 pages. It covers decades of a Kzin's life. Since he is at heart a coward, his life is very traumatic.

More killer kitties from space.
