      Forgot to add this to my shelf. I finally read up on Piper after finishing his trilogy and the real tragedy is that he committed suicide the year the second book (Fuzzy Sapiens) was published. Fuzzies and Other People was found in his basement years after his death. The tragedy (beyond the suicide) is that he never lived to see his best book published. Maybe it's reading all three books in order, but I felt like Fuzzies and Other People finally gave me an emotional connection to the characters t [...]

      A very satisfying capstone to a classic SF franchise. And to think it almost wasn't published at all - finding this manuscript in a trunk years after Piper's death certainly adds to the mystique. (Unfortunately a little polishing might have been advisable had Piper submitted this while still alive.)One reason I liked this book so much was that it redeemed the series from many of the complaints I had while reading the 2nd volume (Fuzzy Sapiens). For once, Piper really focuses on what a fuzzy can [...]

      If one reads this story on any level other than shallow, one will find several problems. The characters smoke like fiends, they drink to excess, they pass off bad habits to the aboriginal Fuzzies (including smoking and drinking), and the story comes close to advocating enslavement of a sapient species, even if it is in a gilded cage. If, however, one tosses off all care for moral considerations, this story is nothing but pure fun. All of our favorites in this series is here. Pappy Jack Holloway, [...]

      Published posthumously, if memory serves. Suffers a bit because of it. Needed work. Still good. Worth reading.

      As I wrote in my review of The Fuzzy Papers, I'm very impressed by Piper's ability to render and develop other cultures. His skill goes beyond typical world-building. The real genius (for me) is that he kept his aliens alien, not simply smaller, indigenous humans in disguise. Good work, nicely done.

      “Little Fuzzies” (1961), a Hugo nominee and considered a classic work of scifi by H. Beam Piper. It’s initial theme is of the exploitation of resources and the environment of an alien planet. It predates Ursula le Guin’s “The Word for World Is Forest ” by a decade. The secondary and primary theme is of the colonization and the exploitation of sapient indigenous peoples on an alien planet, making the point, intended or not, that the more “sophisticated” newcomers that come to a [...]

      This is the third of the Fuzzy books that feature among the most memorable aliens in science fiction. Mind you, they're so cute as to induce sugar shock. Creatures "two feet tall, with wide-eyed face covered with soft golden fur," playful, sane, sweet and emotionally and intellectually about ten years old. The first book dealt with some sophisticated concepts. The "Fuzzies" are on a planet colonized by humans and largely owned and ruled by a corporation under a charter only valid if there are no [...]

      After H. Beam Piper committed suicide in 1964, two more Fuzzy books were produced by other writers. I don’t count those as part of the Fuzzy mythos, especially since they don’t mesh with this most recent book.Fuzzies and Other People picks up where Fuzzy Sapiens left off. Hugo Ingermann’s crew is on trial for enslaving Fuzzies and forcing then to steal sunstones from the company vaults. But Ingermann has a trick up his sleeve. He intends to claim the Fuzzies were willing accomplices to the [...]

      I've had a fun week reconnecting with Piper's fuzzies and the humans who discover them. Having read all three back-to-back, I have to say Fuzzies and Other People is probably my favorite of the trilogy.About half way through the book, the humans took a back seat to the fuzzies and the bulk of the narration came from their perspective. Getting inside their heads to actually see how they think and analyze things was definitely the highlight of the book -- and the series. It gets the reader away fr [...]

    • Silvio Curtis says:

      I know the Fuzzy books are pretty much a paternalist fantasy of how colonialism was supposed to work, but through sheer self-consistent conviction along with the abundant details of alien ecology that get mentioned in passing, they manage to be unusually fun to read. This third book is I think a posthumous find in the author's papers, but reads like the others. In this one there's a lot told from Fuzzies' point of view, specifically a band making its first contact with humans. At the same time t [...]

      The third volume in Piper’s Fuzzy series, Fuzzies And Other People was prepared from a rough manuscript and published twenty years after Fuzzy Sapiens. I feel for the folks who had to wait that long. Lucky me, I didn’t read these books until the late 80’s and got to read them in order right away! This book provides a far more unified, appropriate third volume than William Tuning’sFuzzy Bones, the book originally released as the third Fuzzy volume. While that book was good and introduced [...]

    • Kat Klein says:

      This book came out about 10 years after I read the first books in the series. It didn't disappoint at all! It was such a satisfying conclusion to the Fuzzy series. Not that I was unhappy with the series without the third book, but this one tied up the niggling little loose ends, and gave me more time with and perspective from the Fuzzies. If you've read and enjoyeed the first two, I would recommend this one very strongly.

    • Robert says:

      Piper's politics and cultural comprehension is primitive, but this is still a pretty good story. The parts I liked the best were when the fuzzies were on their own. The whole fuzzies as children thing reminded me too much of the condescending attitudes of colonialists towards natives, which is exactly what it is in this case. I kept waiting for a plot twist that recognized this, but Piper seems to have been too confined by his prejudices.

    • Snail in Danger (Sid) Nicolaides says:

      I hate to say it, but I was disappointed by this book. There was a lot of stuff, but the situation was basically the same as it was at the end of Fuzzy Sapiens. If you're a trial lawyer some of the shenanigans in that area might amuse you. But I would hesitate to recommend this to anyone but people looking to scratch their Piper or Fuzzies completionist itch.

    • Mickey Schulz says:

      The long lost 3rd Fuzzy book was not published until the 80s. By the time this book was published, Ace had contracted William Tuning to write Fuzzy Bones and Ardath Mayhar to write Golden Dreams. This book definitely feels not quite finished, or edited. I think Piper probably would have fine-tuned it a but more before publishing it, had he lived.

    • Mike says:

      This the third Fuzzy book by Piper. It follows on from the second book.I rather enjoyed it, although not at first however as it went on it grew on me. I think this was because of the story. There was a lot of scene setting at first, but once the Little Fuzzy story line started it picked up and because enjoyable.Its probably the weakest of the three books but that doesn't mean its bad.

    • Marie says:

      This book was cute in a colonial kind of way, I guess. Basically, there's this cute, sentient race that MUST be taken care of by humans or else they DIE. The Fuzzies also recognize this fact, and each want a human for themselves.I mean it's not badly written and it IS very cute, but I was like :| at some parts.

    • julia says:

      I loved this one just like I loved the two previous books. It was nice to get part of the book from Little Fuzzy's point of view, and to see how the humans were reacting to having Fuzzies on the planet.

    • Mary Catelli says:

      The third and last of these little classics -- the posthumously published one. questions about the legal status of arrangements made to protect the Fuzzies, whether they are legal minors, and whether they can testify. A sequence of Fuzzies still living in the wild. A question of fire.

    • Marilyn says:

      The manuscript for this book was found after the author's untimely demise, which makes is all the more interesting. Well, not the storyline, but the book's background.The names of these books alone should prompt people to want to read them, as hard as they are to get through.

    • Theresa says:

      the first cognizant integration of man and an alien spices is not what is to be expected when greed and power are confronted with a small remunerative alien spices that needs to be protected.

    • Stephanie says:

      Still loving the Fuzzies!

    • Baal Of says:

      Rating this a 3 from memory. I read this in high school, and I'm pretty sure I liked it then. I suspect that I would not enjoy it very much if I were to read it now.

      Love the series
