Orson Scott Card is the author of the novels Ender's Game, Ender's Shadow, and Speaker for the Dead. Ender's Game and Speaker for the Dead both won Hugo and Nebula Awards, making Card the only author to win these two top prizes in consecutive years. There are seven other novels to date in The Ender Universe series. Card has also written fantasy: The Tales of Alvin Maker is a series of fantasy novels set in frontier America; his most recent novel, The Lost Gate, is a contemporary magical fantasy. Card has written many other stand-alone sf and fantasy novels, as well as movie tie-ins and games, and publishes an internet-based science fiction and fantasy magazine, Orson Scott Card's Intergalactic Medicine Show. Card was born in Washington and grew up in California, Arizona, and Utah. He served a mission for the LDS Church in Brazil in the early 1970s. Besides his writing, Card directs plays and teaches writing and literature at Southern Virginia University. He lives in Greensboro, North Carolina, with his wife, Kristine Allen Card, and youngest daughter, Zina Margaret.
This is my favorite Card book, hand's down. I like it more than Speaker for the Dead, Ender's Game, Magic Street, Enchantment, Alvin Maker, Homecoming, & all the rest. Read morePublished 6 months ago by Adam

I'm quite fond of Card's work, and this is perhaps the 15th book of his I've read. I picked it up with no foreknowledge of the book at all. Read morePublished on May 28, 2012 by Pauglos
All these reviewers stating how edgy this story is - how it makes them question what good and evil is - whether evil is inherent or learned - are missing the bigger picture. Read morePublished on April 4, 2012 by Marvin

Card is an excellent writer, but far too many of his books are about gifted and sensitive children living in misery. Read morePublished on May 21, 2009 by P. Rainey
