Críticas:

"Poignant.... There's joy and sadness and everything in between in these stories."

"[A] solid SF collection.... These stories are best taken a few at a time, to savor their inventiveness."

"Radiate[s] Niven's wit and technological inventiveness. A must for Nivenites and just plain good reading for everyone else."

" A must for Nivenites and just plain good reading for everyone else." -- "Booklist "on "The Draco Tavern" " There are wise elder races and there are scamsters and folks who raise interesting questions. In some ways, the object-lesson stories remind one of pundits' political columns... . Thought provoking.-- "San Diego Union-Tribune" on "The Draco Tavern"

" Brilliant . . . These stories are best taken a few at a time to savor their inventiveness." -- "Publishers Weekly" on "The Draco Tavern"

" Reads more like an episodic novel... . There's joy and sadness and everything in between in these stories-- which seem to have devised as vehicles for Niven to explore a wide variety of ideas and also happen to be about what it means to be human. One of the ways in which we learn about who we are is to see what we are not, and in this book there are many examples of what humans are not." -- "Romantic Times Bookclub" on "The Draco Tavern"

Reseña del editor:

When a tremendous spacecraft took orbit around the Earth's moon and began sending smaller landers down toward the North Pole, the newly arrived visitors quickly set up a permanent spaceport in Siberia. Their presence attracted many, and a few people grew conspicuously rich from secrets they learned from talking to the aliens. One of these men, Rick Schumann, established a tavern catering to all of the various species of visiting aliens, a place he named the Draco Tavern.
From the mind of #1 "New York Times" bestselling author Larry Niven come twenty-six tales and vignettes from this interplanetary gathering place, collected for the first time in one volume, including:

"The Subject Is Closed": A priest visits the tavern and goes one-on-one with a chirpsithra alien on the subject of God and life after death.

"Table Mannners: A Folk Tale": Rick Schumann is invited to hunt with five folk aliens, but he's not quite sure what their hunt entails, or if he will be the hunted.

"Losing Mars": In this previously unpublished tale, a group of aliens who call Mars and its moon home arrive at the tavern only to find that humans have mostly forgotten about their neighboring planet.
