Cover & Synopsis: RINGWORLD: THE GRAPHIC NOVEL (Part One) by Larry Niven & Sean Lam

Here’s the cover and synopsis for the upcoming graphic novel Ringworld: The Graphic Novel (Part 1) by Larry Niven & Sean Lam, hitting shelves in July.

Here’s the synopsis:

A modern science fiction classic, Larry Niven’s Ringworld won the Hugo and Nebula Awards for best novel in 1970. Now this SF classic is adapted into a thrilling manga adventure
In Ringworld, two-hundred-year-old human Louis Wu is recruited by a two-headed alien named Nessus to join him, a catlike warrior alien named Speaker, and the infinitely lucky human Teela Brown to explore an alien artifact.

They find a Ringworld, a ribbon millions of miles long built around a distant sun. The civilization has fallen into savagery, though, and after crashing into the Ringworld, Louis must come up with a clever plan to get back to known space, hundreds of light years away.

  1. Ah, this explains the mysterious eBook I spotted almost a year ago on Amazon. I pre-ordered hoping it was going to be (finally) an eBook of Ringworld but couldn’t figure out why a co-author and why “part 1”.

    Pre-order cancelled. I want the text!

  2. Will it have a ring-shaped pullout?
