As I said, I think hardly anyone disputes that for _Mote_. For the
other collaborations... as James Nicoll put it, "Over the years, to
borrow from Alan Moore, Niven grew more like Pournelle; Pournelle too
became more like Pournelle."
I haven't read them, but I doubt that I would find the latter two books
better than classic Niven on his own.
I'd love ot read *Jennifer* Pournelle's _Outies_, which gets good
reviews, but I think it's only available as DRM ebook.
