Larry Niven and Edward M. Lerner are pleased to announce the mass-market re-release of their second Known Space collaboration, Juggler of Worlds. Covert agent Sigmund Ausfaller is Earth’s secret weapon, humanity’s best defense against all conspiracies, real and potential — and imaginary — of foes both human and alien. Who better than a brilliant paranoid to expose the devious plots of others? Only in the mysterious Nessus, representative of the secretive Puppeteers, Sigmund may finally have met his match….
A snazzy thriller/mystery that keeps us (and our hero) guessing until the very end … Wide screen galactic scope, nifty super-science, crafty aliens, corporate corruption and cover ups, and a multi-leveled spy vs. spy vs. spy mystery with little being as it first appears make Juggler of Worlds a first class exemplar of pure SF entertainment.— SFsite
