What The Hell Is Jinx?

Republibot 3.0's picture

Several years back I wrote an article speculating on the nature of the moon "Jinx" from Larry Niven's "Known Space" stories. It's a very interesting non-standard world, which has prompted a lot of people to assume it's not what it appears to be. This, of course, has prompted a lot of crazy-assed theories about what it *secretly* is. (A ship, an ark, an egg, etc) My crazy-assed theory actually attracted the attention of Larry Niven himself, who sounded off about my allegations.

With his kind permission, I've attached his comments - unaltered - to the end of the article, so you can see what he had to say about it.
