Format: Paperback
"Little Fuzzy" is possibly Piper's most famous novel. The follow on books, "Fuzzy Sapiens" and "Fuzzies And Other People", are worthy successors to the original. "Little Fuzzy" was the first Piper book I ever read, and I have been a fan ever since. Piper blends solid characters, action, sentimentality, humor and a rich fictional future world to tell solid stories with a bit of a twist. The Fuzzies are warm and cute without being maudlin. The human characters are people you wish you could know in real life. I don't know how many authors could successfully combine gunplay and Fuzzies, but H. Beam Piper does it. Piper's stories are great fun in their own right, and for the reader who likes large complex future societies, reading his other stories opens up a whole new wide world.

Format: Paperback
Capsule Description: A dispute over whether a small creature native to the planet Zarathustra is actually intelligent becomes a gripping drama in and out of the frontier planet's courtroom, in a trial whose outcome could mean life or death for an entire species. Written in a way that's suitable for virtually all audiences aside from very young children, with likeable characters, and starring the title character Little Fuzzy, who makes all of Lucas' attempts at cute sidekick characters look lame. A wonderful feel-good book.
Review: Take a good-hearted, crusty miner-type from any good Old West story -- especially the old miner who used to be a gunslinger -- and you've got Jack Holloway, prospecting for "sunstones" on the planet Zarathustra. Zarathustra's owned by the Chartered Zarathustra Company, so whatever you find there you sell to the Company, at the price the Company sets... but sunstones are valuable enough that even what the Company pays is well worth your while. But one day the independent loner comes home to find an odd, cute little creature has wandered into his house. It isn't long before he decides that "Little Fuzzy" is more than just an animal. What he doesn't think about, at least not at first, is this simple fact: a planet-wide Charter is awarded to a company only for planets which do NOT have a native sentient race. But when word of Jack's discovery reaches one of the Company's executives, they most certainly DO think about it... and get ready to do something about it, as well.
"Little Fuzzy" is one of the SF books that I can read to my kids. It has a warm, engaging prose style, and while there are one or two scenes that are scary or shocking, for the most part it's a story where people deal with each other as people.

Format: Paperback
The Fuzzy Trilogy is something rare; something like nothing I've read before. I first ran into the fuzzies many years ago, in a school library, but I never finished the first book. Years later, I recalled it, and began my search. I eventually found all of the fuzzy stories, and read them all through. They were wonderful, with good plots, characters that leaped off of the pages, strange animals, all set in a realistic and fairly earthlike world. A frontier world, though, riddled with high-tech machinery and mentionings of other worlds and fictional history, but mostly down-to-earth... or, in this case, the compelling, exiting and mysterious rugged world of Zarathustra. And, of course, there are the Fuzzies. Fuzzies are simple, straighforward characters, complex underneath but understandable. They creatures that have very rounded, symetric personalities that accept whatever comes to them with little complaint. And they never lie- hardly ever. What more can one ask from a book? -VMT

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By David Johnson on March 14, 2001
Format: Paperback
H. Beam Piper's Fuzzy novels, Little Fuzzy (first published in 1962), Fuzzy Sapiens (originally published as The Other Human Race in 1964), and Fuzzies and Other People (first published in 1984), are perhaps the best treatment ever of the nature of intelligence in science-fiction. The three novels deal with the assorted legal and political challenges which occur in the aftermath of the discovery of the Fuzzies--small, cute, furry humanoids--by human settlers on the planet Zarathustra. Part crime drama, part space opera, Piper's novels remain a joy to read even though many of their early-1960's technological and cultural accouterments are a bit outdated.

Interestingly, the third novel in the Fuzzies series, published posthumously, appeared after the publication of two "authorized" sequels penned by other authors: William Tuning's Fuzzy Bones (1981) and Ardath Mayhar's Golden Dream: A Fuzzy Odyssey (1982).
