TWO COMPLETE NOVELS OF THE MAN-KZIN WARS—
NOW AVAILABLE IN A SINGLE VOLUME
*The Children's Hour by Jerry Pournelle and S.M. Stirling: A new kind of question for the mighty felinoid warriors from the planet Kzin. After several ignominious defeats at the hands of the furless hominids from Planet Earth, at least one Kzin commander thinks he's got the answer: learn from the monkeys — cooperate to destroy! And it's working. But the humans have millennia of experience dealing with cooperative enemies, and what is perceived as a strength can sometimes be manipulated into a tragic flaw. Here's what can happen when one's rivals cooperate against one. . . .
* Cathouse by Dean Ing: Carroll Locklear was up to his ears in Kzinti. He hadn't planned it that way; what sane human would want to be trapped cheek by furry jowl with a bunch of homicidal bearcats But when he was taken prisoner, somehow the subject of Locklear's likes and dislikes never came up, and now he finds himself stranded on a planet of prehistoric Kzinti. To survive he must find common cause, if not with the males then with the females of that antique species. . . .
|Publisher's Note: Cathouse and The Children's Hour have appeared previously as two separate novels: This is their first appearance in a single volume.
