A Darker Geometry

A Darker Geometry A novel built on a short story with the same name published in the collection Man-Kzin Wars VII. Written by Gregory Benford an Mark O. Martin.

Depicts man's first contact with the Outsiders, an event that leads to the use of hyperdrive by humans. It is a tale that has generated much controversy among Niven fans, who argue whether it can be considered "canon" or not as it sems to contradict or rewrite many of the assumptions behind Known Space (for example, it introduces the "Guardian" caste of Puppeteers, who seem to go against everything Niven wrote about the cowardly species).
