    (April 30, 1938- )
    Born in Los Angeles, California
    Sci-Fi author best known for his collaborations with Jerry Pournelle
    Creator of the Known Space series including Ringworld
    Five time winner of the Hugo Award
    Received a Bachelors degree from the University of Kansas
    His most well known works came from collaborations with other authors like Jerry Pournelle and Steve Barnes.
    He had to write a sequel to Ringworld because he made glaring scientific mistakes in it.
    Despite his success as a writer, a few TV episodes from a couple of different TV series are his only works to filmed.
    His short story 'Man of Steel, Woman of Kleenex' is possibly the funniest sci-fi short story of all-time.
    In addition to his Hugo wins, he has also won the Nebula and Ditmas Awards.
    He wrote the 'bible' for the Green Lantern.
    He wrote 'Niven's Laws,' the first of which was, 'There is no cause so right that one cannot find some fool following it,' and includes the profound 'Mother Nature does not care if you are having a good time.'
    Footfall, a collaboration with longtime friend Jerry Pournelle hit #1 on the NY Times Bestseller list. Rare for a science fiction work.
