I ask because i read a collection of short stories written by himself when i lived in Ireland and was so awed by those works i had to share with any and everybody which of course means i gave the book away. Since this collection was so amazing i really do want to try and get a hold of it again but searching in bookstores hasn't been fruitful and since i can't be specific about the title shopping online hasn't worked out either. So this leads me to beg of you whe frequent this website (this site, email and occasional earthy crunchy online sites are all i know how to acess-i'm an idiot I confess) to share any knowledge you may have on this subject. Thanks in advance
He wrote a lovely early collection called "Songmaster," I think (or "Song" something). and of course "Ender's Game" is quite possibly my second favorite piece of 20th century fiction (after LOTR). I'm not wild about the more recent stuff. . . .

Quote:The hypocrites of homosexuality are, of course, already preparing to answer these statements by accusing me of homophobia, gay-bashing, bigotry, intolerance; but nothing that I have said here -- and nothing that has been said by any of the prophets or any of the Church leaders who have dealt with this issue -- can be construed as advocating, encouraging, or even allowing harsh personal treatment of individuals who are unable to resist the temptation to have sexual relations with persons of the same sex. On the contrary, the teachings of the Lord are clear in regard to the way we must deal with sinners. Christ treated them with compassion -- as long as they confessed that their sin was a sin. Only when they attempted to pretend that their sin was righteousness did he harshly name them for what they were: fools, hypocrites, sinners. Hypocrites because they were unwilling to change their behavior and instead attempted to change the law to fit it; fools because they thought that deceiving an easily deceivable society would achieve the impossible goal of also deceiving God.

The Ender's Shadow series however, was basically rubbish. They were fairly well written, but extremely thin in plot. I mean, Bean's story was pretty weak when you compare it to the complexity of Ender's, and the rest of it was kinda preposterous and silly, if you ask me.

A publishing ploy that has cropped up in the past several years. A ploy that seems to save any legal hassles with the original publisher. Weird stuff, publication rights.
Actually Knibblet would seem to know more about legalities than I

Somehow O.S. Card the sci-fi and fantasy writer and O.S. Card the every day person are two halves of a split personality.
However... when I visit O.S. Card's website ... His politics are that conservative. It's the typical family-values mantra...

If anyone is interested the last I heard about the Ender's Game movie was in one of his books on writing. He said it wouldn't happen because the would-be producers insisted Ender be played by a teen.
Actually, OSC's website indicates the movie is a go. The writing team of the X-Men in currently working on the script.

Ender's Game is definitely on my can't wait to see list, with Serenity as my #1!
OK, But what's the speed of dark?
