This impressive collection of twenty-one stories by Larry Niven -- science fiction, fantasy, contemporary fiction, and mixed genres (detective-noir-meets-aliens) -- highlights the range of the Hugo and Nebula Award-winning author's work. From science fiction which edges toward horror ("Bordered in Black"), sf conundrums ("Singularities Make Me Nervous") to three Draco Tavern stories and many with clever twists, CONVERGENT SERIES is a feast for lovers of the short story.
