11. Ringworld Pierson's puppeteers, strange, three-legged, two-headed aliens, have discovered an immense structure in a hitherto unexplored part of the universe. Frightened of meeting the builders of such a structure, the puppeteers set about assembling a team consisting of two humans, a puppeteer and a kzin, an alien not unlike an eight-foot-tall, red-furred cat, to explore it.

A continuation of my last post , this one will conclude my discussion of interesting books I saw at the Hybrid Book Fair .

M iniature books are a small but sweet subsection of the artist book world. In the United States, books are considered miniature if they measure three inches or less in any dimension. In Europe miniature books can be slightly larger.
