On the pleasant backwater planet of Zarathustra things had been relatively quiet since the famous duel between Jack Holloway and his recently discovered son, Morgan. Unless one considers the potential ramifications of the alien rocket ship discovered on the secondary landmass of Beta Continent. The new owners of Bowlby Inter-planetary Network (BIN) attack Ben Rainsford's governorship and the Yellowsand mining treaty with the Charterless Zarathustra Company using the recently discovered rocket and what appear to be the fossils of giant Fuzzies. If Rainsford's government is legally challenged, what will happen to the Fuzzies? Equally disturbing is the unrest evident among the Northern Beta Fuzzies. Things are brought to a head when a member of the colonial government is taken hostage by Fuzzie-tempers flare and only Jack Holloway may be able to stop hostilities before they grow into a full-out war. The government, the CZC, and the Fuzzies are all in danger as events overtake them, as Caveat Fuzzy brings to a conclusion the events related in Fuzzy Ergo Sum.

FUZZY ERGO SUM by Wolfgang Diehr is the first new Fuzzy sequel in almost 30 years. This revised 2nd Edition continues H. Beam Piper's most well-known and beloved series, featuring the characters readers have come to know and love, Jack Holloway, Little Fuzzy, Victor Grego, et al., who all return in this new and exciting continuation of Piper's original novel, Little Fuzzy. Things have been quiet on Zarathustra-maybe too quiet-for the Colonial Government, Jack Holloway, the Fuzzies and the Charterless Zarathustra Company for the last couple of years. Baby Fuzzy made his first kill, the sunstone agreement with the CZC has kept the planetary government in the black and the Fuzzies and humans peacefully co-exist in a nearly symbiotic relationship. All is well until several men arrive on Zarathustra with an agenda that will spell trouble for humans and Fuzzies alike. In a very short period, the Chief Colonial Prosecutor is abducted, a dangerous criminal escapes from prison and a major stockholder with a blood vendetta digs into the company's records.

At the end of Caveat Fuzzy, it appeared that things had settled down on Zarathustra since the slavers' reign of terror at the Fuzzy Reservation was brought to a halt. But it is only the calm before the storm. Suddenly, Fuzzies are disappearing from the Reservation, while people are spacing in from all over the Terran Federation to the colony planet of Zarathustra. The question is why? Hundreds of spaceships, from luxurious yachts to rusty freighters, are orbiting Mallorysport and flooding the spaceport with visitors. And they only want one thing: their very own Fuzzy! Fuzzies are the cutest, cuddliest and most intelligent pet in all of known space. Now, on top of that, owning one has become the ultimate status symbol. Jack Holloway is at his wits' end. Even if he wanted to, there's no way he, or anyone else, could allow this swarm of tourists to each have their very own Fuzzy. There just aren't enough of the little critters to go around; plus, the free Fuzzies living on north Beta continent don't want a thing to do with the Big Bad Ones. However, there are a number of low-life characters who are attempting to abduct as many Fuzzies as they can for transport to Terra. Moreover, there is a new danger to Fuzzies that travel off-world: Jack and company had better figure it out before they unwittingly drive the Fuzzies to extinction!

They stood together at the parapet, their arms about each other's waists, her head against his cheek. Behind, the broad leaved shrubbery gossiped softly with the wind, and from the lower main terrace came music and laughing voices. The city of Wardshaven spread in front of them, white buildings rising from the wide spaces of green treetops, under a shimmer of sun-reflecting aircars above. Far away, the mountains were violet in the afternoon haze, and the huge red sun hung in a sky as yellow as a ripe peach. His eye caught a twinkle ten miles to the southwest, and for an instant he was puzzled. Then he frowned. The sunlight on the two thousand-foot globe of Duke Angus' new ship, the Enterprise, back at the Gorram shipyards after her final trial cruise. He didn't want to think about that, now. Instead, he pressed the girl closer and whispered her name, "Elaine," and then, caressing every syllable, "Lady Elaine Trask of Traskon." "Oh, no, Lucas!" Her protest was half joking and half apprehensive. "It's bad luck to be called by your married name before the wedding." "I've been calling you that in my mind since the night of the Duke's ball, when you were just home from school on Excalibur."...
