Overview: Born in Los Angeles in 1938, Larry Niven has been a full-time writer since leaving UCLA in 1963.

1. A World Out of Time (ed.Jerry eBooks, 2018)
A World Out of Time tells of Jaybee Corbell’s one-man (but not one-presence) odyssey into the future, from his awakening in the twenty-second century—and his conversion from frozen “corpsicle” to spaceship pilot for the State—through a galactic tour that shunts him three million years ahead, to a homecoming on a puzzlingly transformed, relocated Earth. In trying to discover what has happened in his 3,000 millennial absence, Corbell meets a solitary, once-beautiful, ever-vindictive Norn named Mirelly-Lyra; her cat-snake pets and other curious animal mutants; and a colony of almost-immortal “Boys,” survivors of a legendary war with the almost-immortal “Girls,” a war in which one side controlled the heavens and the other the Earth. Conceived and written with wit, technical sophistication, and striking imagination,

Like much of Niven's work, the story is heavily influenced by the setting: a gas torus, a ring of air around a neutron star. The gas giant Goldblatt's World (abbreviated "Gold") orbits this star just outside its Roche sphere. Thus, Gold's gravity is insufficient to hold its atmosphere, which is pulled loose into an independent orbit around Voy. This orbiting air forms a ring known as the Gas Torus. The Gas Torus is huge — one million kilometers thick — but most of it is too thin to be habitable. The central part of the Gas Torus, where the air is thicker, is known as the Smoke Ring. The Smoke Ring supports a wide variety of life. There is no “ground” in the Smoke Ring; it is a world consisting entirely of sky. Thus, most animals can fly, even the fish. Furthermore, since the Smoke Ring is in orbit, it is in free fall — there is no “up” or “down”…
