"There were still so many things Fuzzies had to learn." ...that's the final line of H. Beam Piper's classic Fuzzy Sapiens, where the story broke off twenty years ago. Following Piper's tragic suicide in 1964, there were persistent rumors that he had written a sequel to Fuzzy Sapiens, a third Fuzzy novel; some of his friends had been told about it, a few had even read parts of it. But the manuscript itself remained lost until it was discovered in a trunk in a basement in Pennsylvania. Now, at last return to Piper's Zarathustra. It's been twenty years for us – but only three months since Jack Holloway found and befriended a small golden-furred being... three short months that have changed their lives...
