Pretty nice. I've read, re-read, and re-re-read the first three books, and I'm working my way through the Niven/Lerner prequels.

I want to see this artist take on the creation of Fist-of-God. That'll take some skill with CGI.

You must be a time traveler. The third book of the "trilogy" came out 15 years ago: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ringworld_series
