Edward M. Lerner has announced that he and Larry have sold a book contract for another Known Space novel, entitled DESTROYER OF WORLDS. It will be set after FLEET OF WORLDS and JUGGLER OF WORLDS. The novel will involve Pak protectors. As previously announced, in some part it will be a sequel to PROTECTOR. Lerner reports "We have a plot, very detailed background notes about various alien species, and a prologue." Publication date is not set, but is unlikely to be before 2010.
Discussion regarding the book (although not many details) can be found in the April 2008 Niven chat log.

Aldo Spadoni participated in April's monthly Niven chat, and gave us some details about the "Larry Niven's Free Fall" video game project. He said "I’m designing the spacecraft and much of the technology. Even dolphin spacesuits!" Aldo also reported "We are in selling mode and have to close a deal with a game publisher. There is definitely interest." He added "I’m guessing we’ll have a pretty good idea if it will sell before this fall."
The entire Q&A session can be seen at Paradoxically by Paradox Olbers, a website run by long-time Niven fan Spike MacPhee.
