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., Two humans and two aliens, who are traveling to distant reaches of space to prevent a future catastrophe, crash on a ringworld apparently created by superior technologies., Unabridged., Z0VIA, [United States] :Blackstone Audio, Inc. :Made available through hoopla,2005., audios, computerc, data file, digital, hoopla digital., online resourcecr, othersz, qafea06-09-15mn-, spoken wordspw, texttxt, unmediatedn, volumenc
