"H. Beam Piper is best known to readers for his Fuzzy books and to fans for his Paratime stories, but it is his Terro-human Future History that is his greatest and most imaginative gift."

Piper's Terro-human Future History is a future-historical science-fiction series which chronicles the expansion of the human race from its origins on Earth (Terra) out into the galaxy.  Consisting of the novels of Piper's famous Fuzzy trilogy, Piper's novels Uller Uprising, Four-Day Planet, Junkyard Planet (also known as The Cosmic Computer), and Space Viking, and eight Piper stories originally published in pulp magazines between 1957 and 1962 (and reissued in the Piper collections Federation and Empire, along with an additional, previously-unpublished story), the Terro-human Future History spans over thirty millennia of future history.
