Flatlander (short story collection)


Flatlander (short story collection)

"Flatlander" (ISBN 0-345-39480-1) is a 1995 collection of stories by Niven, all set in Known Space. It is the definitive collection of all stories by Niven about ARM agent Gil Hamilton.

The book includes the stories "Death by Ecstasy" (formerly "The Organleggers"), "The Defenseless Dead", "ARM", "The Patchwork Girl", and "The Woman in Del Rey Crater"—the only previously unpublished story in the collection.

The collection is essentially a replacement for a 1976 collection called "The Long Arm of Gil Hamilton" (ISBN 0-345-30050-5) which contained only the first three stories. "The Patchwork Girl" was also published alone as a novel in 1986 (ISBN 0-441-65315-4).
