Larry Niven Outies Epub File


How to Read Larry Niven's Outies on Your E-Reader

Larry Niven is a renowned American science fiction writer, best known for his Ringworld series and his collaborations with other authors such as Jerry Pournelle and Steven Barnes. His work is characterized by hard science fiction, big science concepts, and adventure stories. He has won multiple awards, including the Hugo, Nebula, Locus, and Ditmar awards, and was named the 2015 recipient of the Damon Knight Memorial Grand Master Award by the Science Fiction Writers of America[^1^].

One of his lesser-known works is Outies, a sequel to The Mote in God's Eye and The Gripping Hand, co-written with Jerry Pournelle. Outies was published in 2010 by Subterranean Press as a limited edition hardcover book. It is set in the same universe as the previous books, but focuses on a different planet and a new cast of characters. It explores the aftermath of the human-motie war and the implications of the Alderson Drive, a technology that allows faster-than-light travel between stars[^2^].

If you are a fan of Larry Niven's work and want to read Outies on your e-reader, you might have some difficulty finding it in digital format. Outies is not available as an official ebook from any major online retailer. However, there is a way to convert it to an EPUB file, which is a common ebook format that can be read by most e-readers and apps.

An EPUB file is a compressed archive that contains the text, images, styles, and metadata of an ebook. It can be opened by various programs, such as Calibre, Adobe Digital Editions, Apple Books, Google Play Books, and more. To create an EPUB file from Outies, you will need a physical copy of the book, a scanner or camera, an optical character recognition (OCR) software, and an EPUB editor[^3^]. Here are the steps to follow:

Scan or photograph each page of Outies and save them as image files on your computer.

Use an OCR software to extract the text from the images and save them as plain text files. You can use online tools such as OnlineOCR or FreeOCR, or install a program such as ABBYY FineReader or Tesseract.

Use an EPUB editor to create a new EPUB file and import the text files into it. You can use online tools such as Reedsy or Sigil, or install a program such as Calibre or Jutoh.

Add the cover image, title, author, publisher, and other metadata to the EPUB file using the EPUB editor.

Save the EPUB file and transfer it to your e-reader or app.

Now you can enjoy reading Outies on your e-reader. However, please note that this method is only for personal use and not for distribution or sale. Outies is still under copyright protection and belongs to Larry Niven and Subterranean Press. If you want to support the author and publisher, please consider buying a physical copy of the book from their website or other sources.

Outies is not the only book by Larry Niven that is hard to find in digital format. Many of his older and rarer works are also out of print or only available as limited edition hardcovers. Some examples are The Magic Goes Away, The Flight of the Horse, The Best of Larry Niven, and The Draco Tavern. If you want to read these books on your e-reader, you can use the same method as described above to convert them to EPUB files.

However, there are also some advantages to reading physical books over ebooks. Physical books have a tactile feel, a distinctive smell, and a visual appeal that ebooks cannot replicate. They can also be collected, displayed, and shared with others. Physical books can also last longer than ebooks, as they do not depend on batteries, software updates, or device compatibility. They can also be more durable and resistant to damage than electronic devices.

Ultimately, the choice between physical books and ebooks depends on your personal preference and situation. Both formats have their pros and cons, and both can provide a satisfying reading experience. Whether you prefer to read Outies or any other book by Larry Niven on paper or
