Book Description

CAVEAT FUZZY by Wolfgang Diehr is his sequel to Fuzzy Ergo Sum and the second new book continuing the Fuzzy series of novels first begun by H. Beam Piper. Little Fuzzy was H. Beam Piper's bestselling novel and was nominated for a Hugo award in 1963. The book's popularity has not diminished since it was initially published and has been reprinted in numerous editions.

On the pleasant backwater planet of Zarathustra things had been relatively quiet since the famous duel between Jack Holloway and his recently discovered son, Morgan. Unless one considers the potential ramifications of the alien rocket ship discovered on the secondary landmass of Beta Continent. The new owners of Bowlby Inter-planetary Network (BIN) attack Ben Rainsford's governorship and the Yellowsand mining treaty with the Charterless Zarathustra Company using the recently discovered rocket and what appear to be the fossils of giant Fuzzies. If Rainsford's government is legally challenged, what will happen to the Fuzzies?

Equally disturbing is the unrest evident among the Northern Beta Fuzzies. Things are brought to a head when a member of the colonial government is taken hostage by Fuzzies - tempers flare and only Jack Holloway may be able to stop hostilities before they grow into a full-out war. The government, the CZC, and the Fuzzies are all in danger as events overtake them, as Caveat Fuzzy brings to a conclusion the events related in Fuzzy Ergo Sum.
