Larry Niven Cover Gallery Part 1

gThe gallery is intended to cover primarily British paperback editions, although I've slipped in a few American editions, especially those titles that haven't had a British edition. I've also listed a couple of known UK paperback editions where I don't have cover scans.

When I lived in the U. K, 1966-1977, I read the hardback; I am almost certain that the first British paperback of Ringworld had the ring gainst a blue-sky background, with the living surfaces on the outside of the ring; I don't remember where a sun might have been. Whether anyone can still find a copy, I don't know.

Hi Don,

I'll see if I can track down a copy of the first UK paperback.

But mistakes relating to the Ringworld are a tradition... didn't Niven admit that in the first editions of the book the Ringworld was rotating the wrong way?
