    1. This is classic golden age feel-good sci-fi. The good guys win, the bad guys all get killed or put away, and nothing really bad happens to the cute little fuzzies. Yes, it's a little dated and it shows its age, but it's still good reading for those who like the old SF classics.Fuzzy Papers combines the first two books in H. Beam Piper's classic "Fuzzy" series: Little Fuzzy and Fuzzy Sapiens. Reading them in a single volume is appropriate, since the second book picks up right where the first left [...]


    2. The main reason I picked up this book was because John Scalzi wrote a book set in this same universe, called Fuzzy Nation. I’ve only read one Scalzi book, Old Man’s War, but it was good enough that I wanted to read more of his stuff. So when I read that he was working on Fuzzy Nation, I thought it was a good idea to catch up on the original material. And here we are.The book is a collection of two novels set in the Fuzzy universe — Little Fuzzy and Fuzzy Sapiens– and the books are very d [...]


    3. 3.5. One of the first books I read when I was being introduced to SF beyond Star Trek. Very evocative of the time it was written, but interesting. Even though it is a little old fashioned there are at least two female scientists that I can think of, and possibly more.


    4. The Fuzzy Papers was a gem of a read as a cultural anthropologist. I didn't know what the books were about when I got them and had one of those "Oh-my-god" experiences while reading. I didn't know if Piper had experience in ethnography or anthropology (especially cultural, perhaps folklore studies) and was impressed at how the relationship between humans and the Fuzzies came about. I don't see lots of science-fiction books that get their intercultural/first-contact stories correct, this one does [...]



    5. Cuteness overload!Little FuzzyAs soon as he put on the light, something inside the shower stall said, "Yeeeek!" in a startled voice.He turned quickly to see two wide eyes staring up at him out of a ball of golden fur. Whatever it was, it had a round head and big ears and a vaguely humanoid face with a little snub nose. It was sitting on its haunches, and in that position it was about a foot high.The planet Zarathustra is classified as having no native sentient inhabitants, and the the company th [...]


    6. This is a dual book combining Little Fuzzy and Fuzzy Sapiens, and though I have read it several times, my memory, specifically is a little fuzzy. Charming, heart-warming are keywords that I can attribute to these tales. It deals with our human expansion to the stars and our encountering those little green martians we have always expected. Accept they are not what we have thought.That have not always been there in their UFO's spying on us, or are part of a xenocidal race that wants our extinction [...]


    7. This is an omnibus edition of the first two Fuzzy books that feature among the most memorable aliens in science fiction. Mind you, they're so cute as to induce sugar shock. Creatures "two feet tall, with wide-eyed face covered with soft golden fur," playful, sane, sweet and emotionally and intellectually about ten years old. The first book dealt with some sophisticated concepts. The "Fuzzies" are on a planet colonized by humans and largely owned and ruled by a corporation under a charter only va [...]


    8. H. Beam Piper is one of my favourites and this and Fuzzy Sapiens (usually in omnibus now) are a fantastic read. Now we are confronted with the problem of what to do when our technology becomes sentient but when Piper was writing that was a distant dream. He still had the luxury of a fiction universe where humanity would arrive on a planet and discover/uplift and learn from an aboriginal species. In this way he was both ahead of his time and rather old fashioned. I like the Mad-Men idea that ever [...]


    9. My mother read this book when I was five. I would carry the book around and touch all the pages in the book looking for the "fuzzy papers." And I often wondered what would happen to these little furry people on the cover. As my mother read each of the books and I would see the "Fuzzies" in cover art and in a couple of magazines I made up my own story about them. As an Army family we moved a lot, but I made sure to put my copy of this book in my carry on bag. I was afraid to read the book after I [...]


    10. Finally got around to reading this (of course I was influenced by finally picking up Scalzi's Fuzzy Nation). Been meaning to read it (or at least Little Fuzzy) as part of my effort to read more Hugo-nominated sci fi.I was very impressed with these books. I am surprised Piper is not more well known as an author. The characters were adequate, if you can get over the constant need to go to cocktail hour. But Piper really shines on the plot, especially in the first book. Science fiction first-contac [...]


    11. Two individual four-star books (actually a 3.5 and a 4.5) that follow so closely chronologically that the compilation deserves five stars because of flow.Written in the early Sixties, the books hold up well as the focus is on the story not hard SciFi. As such, the Humanities themes are common for the Atom Bomb and Communist Witch-hunt era; although, not nearly as ham-fisted as most.Anyway a quick and easy read despite the deep social and philosophical undertones. Very enjoyable without a sense o [...]


    12. Good understanding of ecology and sentience for a book written in 1964. Not quite as funny and insightful as 'Fuzzy Nation', the John Scalzi knock off of the story. First 'book' tells of these creature's discovery and the second 'book' deals with political consequences of identifying them as sentient. Side story of Fuzzy population decline and search for the cause of low birthrate is an excellent dive into chemistry and ecosystem studies. I'm not sure why this book isn't categorized as young adu [...]


    13. For some reason, long ago, I had this double book, plus individual copies of the two novels it contains. To explain this apparent duplication, all I can think of is that I bought this double, because, at the time, the second novel in the series was unavailable as a single book.Anyway, the "Fuzzies", were great characters, told well by Piper.


    14. I have the hardback book club edition of this. It contains "Little Fuzzy," and "The Other Human Race." I didn't think it was quite as good as many others had told me it was. It was cutesy in places, perhaps, but it really is a pretty interesting story and I definitely didn't find it hard reading.


    15. I admit I was reluctant to pick this one up for a long time -- really, a book about tiny furry aliens? Decided to read it after John Scalzi's Fuzzy Nation came out. Surprisingly enjoyable. I liked Little Fuzzy more than I liked Fuzzy Sapiens, so I would say 4 stars for the former, 3 stars for the latter.


    16. some idiot let some other idiot rewrite this. Avoid the rewrite. Repeat- AVOID THE REWRITE! Also, the original cannot be derivitive. Piper did amazing work, and much modern Sci-fi reflects this. hurray for grumpy original thinkers!


    17. My father read me this book when I was probably 6 and it has always stayed with me. In the past 20 years I have probably read it and the sequels a dozen times. It is one of my all time favorite books and I encourage anyone and everyone to read it.





    18. I really enjoyed these two books. I talk a lot about characters and characterization, but in Sci-Fi the setting is as much a character as the rest of the book.


    19. A favorite of mine. Easy to read and just a good tale all the way around. A most enjoyable read I would recommend to anyone who likes science fiction and fantasy.






    20. a story of a alien race meeting a human man, how he finds their intellegence and acceptance appealing and how he protects them from other men
