Subterranean Press to reprint Larry Niven’s award-winning 1974 short story “The Hole Man”

Subterranean Press announced that it will reprint “The Hole Man” (1974), a Hugo Award-winning short story written by science fiction author Larry Niven, and 26 other stories in The Best of Larry Niven, a new collection being crafted by Australian editor Jonathan Strahan that is scheduled to be released in late 2010. A hard-science read set on Mars, Niven considers “The Hole Man” a “straightforward crime story rendered distinctive only by an unusual murder weapon.” According to his website, Niven wrote the story after he and fellow SF author Jerry Pournelle interviewed astrophysicist Stephen Hawking about the latter's research on black holes.
