Two hundred years before the discovery of Ringworld…

For too long, the Puppeteers have controlled the fate of worlds. Now Sigmund is pulling the strings.

Covert agent Sigmund Ausfaller is Earth’s secret weapon, humanity’s best defense against all conspiracies, both real and imaginary, and all foes, both human and alien. Who better than a brilliant paranoid to expose the devious plots of others?

But Sigmund may finally have met his match in Nessus, representative of the secretive Puppeteers, the elder race who wield vastly superior technologies. Even after the Puppeteers abruptly vanish from Known Space, Nessus schemes in the shadows with Earth’s traitors and adversaries.

As a paranoid, Sigmund has always known things would end horribly for him; only the when, where, how, why, and by whom of it all eluded him. But even Sigmund never imagined that his destiny would be entwined with the fates of worlds.

Listener Opinions

    " Juggler of Worlds was extremely disapointing after reading the excellent first book in the series. Juggler was worlds was essentially retelling all the Known Space stories from another point of view. It also left out most of the good stuff from the stories it was re-telling. Once we were caught up to the current timeline in the previous book and we took up with the fleet of worlds again - the story was weird (in a bad way) and very badly forced. Like I said above Juggler of Worlds was a big disapointment from a writer I normally love. "

    " Juggler of Worlds follows Sigmund Ausfeller and the Puppeteer Nessus through pre-existing Known Space continuity. The narrative is slow, meandering, and patchwork. Hopefully, it's a set up for more original material in the Fleet of Worlds (sub-) series because there's little new or of interest here. The book is a sequel to Fleet of Worlds, which is required reading for understanding of this book. Juggler of Worlds also requires familiarity with a number of short stories by Larry Niven, often annoyingly so. I've read those stories, and didn't need them rehashed. "

    " I wanted more from a novel that tries to tie together big chunks of Niven's Known Space stories. I suspect if you don't have a love for those stories, you won't like this book much. You'd certainly find it hard to understand all that's going on. "

    " Started out well enough, just sort of went nowhere.... ah well. "
