Niven's other notable work includes ''The Integral Trees'' and its sequels, ''A World Out Of Time'' which examines the implications of slower-than-light relativistic travel used as a form of TimeTravel, and the {{Fantasy}} series of ''Literature/TheMagicGoesAway'' ([[TropeNamer Namer]] of [[TheMagicGoesAway that trope]]). He also wrote the influential ''[[http://www.rawbw.com/~svw/superman.html Man Of Steel, Woman Of Kleenex]]'', referenced often in geek culture, and some of the backstory for the post-CrisisOnInfiniteEarths GreenLantern [[TheChosenMany Corps]] origins.

no page for it, the only FA on the wiki is for an unrelated movie with the same name.
* ButWhatAboutTheAstronauts: Kind of used in ''Literature/FallenAngels'' - a radical environmentalist regime rules the Earth and the only people left with freedom and high technology are those living on a moon base or in an orbital habitat made by combining the Mir and (never actually built) Freedom space stations. However, as another ice age is fast descending upon the Earth, it looks like it could become a straight example.

* IfJesusThenAliens: Also used in ''Literature/FallenAngels'' - the novel's "ruling coalition of proxmires, falwells, rifkins and maclaines" is composed of groups currently regard each other, sometimes literally, as minions of the Devil. Niven(and [[Literature/StateOfFear later]], Creator/MichaelCrichton) noticed that if those four blocs ever realized that they are NotSoDifferent - that they all yearn for YeGoodeOldeDays - they could easily gain bipartisan support(Green liberals and fundie conservatives) and pretty much TakeOverTheWorld.
