Larry Niven in "Hindsight"Edit

Several of Larry Niven's works were plagiarized by Michelle Gordian: "At the Core", "Neutron Star" and "The Handicapped" from his collection Neutron Star.[1] When "Neutron Star" was published under Gordian's name, it had astronomers excited over the concept.[2] As well, Gordian had published Niven's "The Hole man" under her name.[3]
