Larry Niven's bestselling Man-Kzin series continues! The kzin, formerly invincible conquerors of all they encountered, had a hard time dealing with their ignominious defeat by the leaf-eating humans. Some secretly hatched schemes for a rematch, others concentrated on gathering power within the kzin hierarchy, and some shamefully cooperated with the contemptible humans, though often for hidden motives. In war and in uneasy peace, kzin and humans continue their adventures with a masterful addition to the Man-Kzin Wars shared universe created by multiple New York Times best seller, incomparable tale-spinner, and Nebula- and five-time Hugo-Award-winner, Larry Niven. Stories by Jane Lindskold, Charles E. Gannon, and more. At the publisher's request, this title is sold without DRM (Digital Rights Management).

This collection of short stores probably varies more in tone than some of the others. The first story is almost silly. More Hitchhiker’s Guide than military science fiction. Not bad, just different. My favorite is a less one-sided tale involving a Kzin captured at birth and raised by humans. If you’ve read the first twelve books in the series, you won’t be dissappointed.
I want to say I enjoyed Man-Kzin Wars XIII, but I found the characterization of the Kzinti too tongue-in-cheek. These stories felt like they were fan written. They lacked the finesse I'm used to seeing in other Larry Niven works.
I can't really recommend it, the stories were not fulfilling.
