    Ender's Game by orson Scott Card

    I did not read this until this month (July 2014). And I decided to give it a go having seen the trailers for the film which features Star Wars' Harrison Ford and Asa Butterfield who was mesmerising in both the TV series Merlin(he played Mordred) and of course the film Hugo. I hope to see the...

    Ender Series Recommended Reading Order?

    I read Ender's Game a while ago and enjoyed it, though I didn't fall in love with it or think it was one of the best things I've ever read, as others have experienced. Nonetheless, I just saw the film and it has reignited my interest in the series and I'm interested in reading on...

    G'day all. I picked up Xenocide to complete the "Ender trilogy", I really liked Ender's Game and sort of liked SftD even though it was a slow book. How is Xenocide? My friend says it is more pacy like book 1 than 2 and more action and just as good a story.

    A vision of the future in Shadow Puppets

    This has already been noticed, and in fact I hope it has. However, in the long-odds chance it has not, I wanted to alert people to OSC's sense of prophecy. Or at the very least the existance of his time machine. In his book Shadow Puppets, toward the beginning of Chapter 3 "Mommies and...

    Anyone Know the Names of the Writers in the Shadow Series?

    I know Peter and Val are Locke and Demosthenes, and in the shadow series after Peter is Hegemon, two new writers emerge, one is Petra, I believe as Lincoln, and the other is??? What is the other pen name used (Lincoln and who)? And is it Peter who writes it?
