    1 thought on “Neutron Star”

    1. [Original review, Feb 2009]For people who haven't read the book, a quick physics test. The hero agrees to put his ship on an orbit that will take it to within one mile of the surface of a neutron star. His employers assure him, correctly, that the ship's hull will stop any form of radiation. Nevertheless, it's a really stupid idea. Why?If you didn't get it, don't feel bad. Beowulf Shaeffer doesn't either, and finds out the hard way.__________________________________[Update, Jul 2014]Since postin [...]

    2. Holy crap was this ever good. I'm not sure how I missed reading any of the Ringworld series before, but with this being the 40th Anniversary, I figured it was time. With epic series like this, I usually hit the 'net to see if there's a recommended reading order, or anything that will help me to "get it" a little more easily. Every site I visited recommended starting with Neutron Star. This is an anthology of 8 short stories (each novelette length,) set in the universe of Ringworld - the future o [...]

    3. I remember reading this years ago when I was first exploring science fiction - the artwork by Peter Jones - the doorway in to Known Space even today still appeals to me. But I get ahead of myself I can tell.Okay this was part of a series of books I picked up at a carboot sale (British thing trust me) and where there was an old suitcase full of books. Well I could not resist not realising what I was letting myself in for.Anyway this is a series of interconnected stories - if you accept the connec [...]

    4. I'd been in the mood to read some classic sci-fi: something distant and cynical, taking place in deep space, where there was fantastic technology and alien races and not many people to mess it all up. This was perfect. Neutron Star is a collection of short stories from Niven prefacing Ringworld and highly worthwhile if you like the latter. I'll be re-reading Ringworld soon with these stories in mind. Plus let this also be a good reminder to just read more Larry Niven. There aren't many writers s [...]

    5. Neutron Star is arguably Niven's best Known Space collection, containing stories that appeared over a relatively brief span but introduced a vast array of fantastic puzzles and fabulous stories. Beowulf Schaeffer, a likable rogue who's one of Niven's best characters, appears in many of them, and planets such as Jinx, Down, and Lookitthat provide classic science fiction settings. This is hard sf at its best.

    6. Neutron Star is my favorite short story collection, with quite a few gems from Niven’s Known Space universe. Unfortunately it is out of print. Luckily though, all the Beowulf Shaeffer stories have been republished in Crashlander with the addition of two newer storiesokssboch/?p=255

    7. Niven sure has a wild imagination. And a really bad taste for puns, but also some really intellectual humor. His ideas are genius even to this day and age. His science-fiction is so realistic, it's disturbing at times.

    8. Great book of short stories, which I usually don't care for. The difference here, I believe, is that most of the stories relate in some manner or if nothing else they are all set in the same sci-fi universe. Good stuff.

    9. Neutronster van Larry Niven, ISB nummer 90 290 5707 6, eerste druk maart 1998, Uitgever Meulenhoff SF.De omschrijving op de achterzijde van het boek:Larry Niven, voluit Laurence Van Cott Niven, opgestaan in de jaren 60 en meteen herkend als spannend vernieuwer, verwierf in Nederland bekendheid met zijn Ring Wereld-Romans - Ringwereld, Bouwers van Ringwereld, Beschermers van Ringwereld. De verhalen in deze uitgave spelen zich alle af in het universum van de Ringwereld-romans, Larry Nivens zogehet [...]

    10. I first read this quite some years ago and was blown away by it. It stands up well to repeated re-readings.The title story - a Hugo winner - introduces us to star pilot Beowulf Shaeffer (who appears in three other stories in the book, "At the Core," "Flatlander," and "Grendel"), as well as the Puppeteers who also feature in Niven's later Ringworld series. These are the tales that introduce us to Known Space. I particularly enjoyed the Shaeffer stories for the character's voice (told first-person [...]

    11. A collection of early short stories by Larry Niven that take place in his "Known Space" universe (i.e Ring World). Mostly of a "hard science" sort of story lines, where actual aspects of physics are a part of the plot line. I really enjoyed at least half of the stories in this book. Would recommend for fans of the hared science short stories of Asimov and Clarke.

    12. Some of the great short fiction from Niven's "Known Space" universe - just enough hard science to make you believe this could all happen one day, and more than enough engaging writing to make this a book I read again and again.

    13. what a great way to start my crusade into the ringworld series. i plan on reading all of the books of the known space. Niven seems to have a great knack of telling stories. i enjoyed this book very much

    14. Wow. I had never read anything by Niven but had naturally heard a lot about his work. This is probably the first book in the Ringworld (or Known Space) series. It tells some tales from the same universe in which Ringworld happens.I was blown away. I mean I have heard that Nivens theories are not all plaucible and some of his mathemathics is off. But I wouldn't know. I understand that the problem some hove with Niven is that his work is labeled as hard scifi (which I think it mostly is). Add this [...]

    15. A go-to primer for Known Space. Contains the three best Beowulf Shaeffer stories (which are also found in Crashlander, a complete collection of Beowulf’s stories), while the remaining stories offer a wide breadth of events and characters from Niven’s universe, most of them linked by the discovery of ancient Slaver relics. Several of my favorite Known Space stories are found here.Neutron Star 5/5Easily the best of the Beowulf Shaeffer stories. The style is sort of like a mystery, with the sup [...]

    16. i've read other works by Niven and loved them. It was cool to read one of his earliest works when he was developing his universe. Puppeteers, Kzin, etc. Now to figure out what i am going to tackle next from his vast selection

    17. I just really enjoy Larry Niven's writing style, and these short stories are excellent examples of it. Someday I really should try to read his series.

    18. Wishing I had known more about Known Space before picking up Ringworld, but enjoying going back and catching up with these short stories.

    19. These stories are a fun blend of diverse aliens and hard science, and Beowulf is funny :) Now I know what a Bandersnatch is.

    20. osrascunhos/2017/11/11/neEis um inesperadamente bom conjunto de histórias. Não conhecia o mundo em que decorre, nem o autor, mas mesmo sem conhecer o enquadramento dado por outras histórias consegue ler-se sem necessidade de introduções – até porque a realidade expressa aqui é simples.Num futuro distante a humanidade já colonizou vários mundos e conheceu outras espécies alienígenas, destacando-se os “Puppeteers” (uma raça de mercadores manipuladores que têm valor para tudo). E [...]

    21. Although out-of-print, Neutron Star is a book worth getting for any fan of science fiction. It collects several of Niven's "Known Space" short stories from his golden age of the late-1960s, including the Beowulf Shaeffer stories.In 1966 Larry Niven created the ultimate tourist with his award-winning short story "Neutron Star." It was the tale of Beowulf Shaeffer, a laid-off pilot heavily in debt and easy to blackmail, and how the alien race the puppeteers convinced him to make a dangerous flyby [...]

    22. Another fix for my Niven addiction! More Known Space tales, most of which are mentioned as backstory in many of the other Niven Novels and the Man-Kzin Wars Anthologies. These are core stories that any Known Space history buff should read. Not to mention how awesome they are.Story Summary of the stories in this book (hopefully without spoilers):Neutron Star - Nothing can get through a General Products No. 2 space hull, but something around the 1st known neutron star did, and the Puppeteers are b [...]

    23. This is such a great book, and it's so easy to plough through the pages. This is my first read of this author and I am so pleased that there are many more to follow within the same universe.It reminded me of Consider Phlebas by Iain M Banks.

    24. My rating of Neutron Star is based entirely on the four stories which were not re-collected in Crashlander:The Ethics of Madness. An interesting look at mental illness, a great ending, and pretty slow getting there. [6/10]The Handicapped. This contains a great secret of Known Space and some interesting ethics, both at the end of the story. Unfortunately getting there is pretty slow. [5/10]A Relic of Empire. Though Niven's ideas about interplanetary plants are interesting, they're not enough to m [...]
