Science Fiction in the News Articles
Related to material in The Ringworld Throne
by Larry Niven

This is the third visit to the world of Ringworld, an amazing artifact - a ribbon of matter that fully surrounds a star, giving almost endless living space. Some characters from the previous books are seen; Louis Wu battles a plague of Pak Protectors (from other Known Space stories). More satisfying to Niven fans; this story is not for children.
