    Just started reading Orson Scott Card...

    ...a few weeks ago, when I saw that 'Ender's Game' was in a bookshop in a town near to me. Got two books for a fiver and started reading it. Haven't read the other yet...:) What is the recommended reading order for the books in the series? So far I've read Ender's Game and Speaker for the Dead.

This is set in the far future, when humanity has spread unchallenged across many worlds. On one...

    I read my first story by Orson Scott Card the other day, a short story called "Sandmagic". I also read that he later developed it into a novel and that there were other stories written in that "universe". I really liked this story and wonder where I should go from here?

    Robota, by Doug Chiang and Orson Scott Card

    Though the venerable name of Orson Scott Card is associated with this week's book, the project was the brainchild of its illustrator, Doug Chiang. If you believe the introductory material, and I have no reason not to, Chiang has been playing with the concepts behind the story for the better part...

    I think Bean is going to be in the New Book

    I think the next Ender book coming out, in November 11th is going to reunite Bean and Ender 3000 years after their time at Battle School. Bean would be around three years older than when he got on the rocket, and I think Ela will be able to cure him and his children. Because of her work with...

    The Abyss

    Got The Abyss at a secondhand bookshop at a very low price, the book looks like it was bought and then shelved and forgotten so it looks new. Anyone read it? I am still on the second chapter and it looks pretty cool. I read the first 2 Ender books and really enjoyed them, am I in for a treat...

    price of books

    I ordered (from TOR) Speaker for the dead and Xenocide online and paid half the price for the same books from Time Warner. Could someone tell me why that is the case. Are the books printed and bound poorly? Did they cut some of the story out?

    O. S. Card Recently reads Gemmell

    I thought this was interesting seeing what a writer really feels about another and not just the hyperbole blurbs you see in every cover. http://www.hatrack.com/osc/reviews/everything/2007-09-16.shtml When I discover a new author who consistently creates moving, inventive stories with...

    Orson Scott Card - Wyrms

    I haven't finished this book yet, or gotten very far. Yet still, I want to know what other people who read this book thought about it. How do you suppose it compares to OSC's other works? Did anyone like any particular characters? Is this one of OSC's last sci-fi works, because now he...

    Shadows in Flight - What you expect will happen

    This is an unpublished book that is supposed to link the Bean Quartet with the Ender Novels. I've finished the Ender Novels (except for the prelude to Speaker for the Dead, which is still to be published as well, I think the title is Ender in Exile or something) and am half-way through the Bean...

    Orson Scott Card - Ender's Shadow

    Original review by Elaine Frei: Ender's Shadow is a rather unusual novel in that it tells essentially the same story as another novel by the same author. But in reality Ender's Shadow is not at all the same novel as Ender's Game, the earlier work by Orson Scott Card. While you might be excused...

    Orson Scott Card - Ender's Game

    You may be forgiven for thinking that "Ender's Game" is a comedy, or a self-parody. After all, a group of children saving the earth from "the buggers"? A recipe for humour, you'd be sure - and in this instance - terribly wrong. Ender's Game is a very dark novel about innocence and morality...

    Only one problem with Ender to me....

    I really liked the books in Enders Universe, the whole concept of a futuristic child leader is very interesting to me, and everything was pretty well put together so it made sense. The only problem that I have had with Ender's Universe in general is the Ansible. There should be a time delay when...

    A Planet Called Treason by Orson Scott Card

    I have just finished re-reading this novel after a gap of some 20 years. It concerns the adventures of Lanik Mueller on an isolated planet divided into states, each of which had specialised in a particular branch of knowledge and developed that to an extremely high degree. He sets off on an...
