Editorial Reviews

Review

"Intelligent and perceptive . . . Card's many fans will find much to enjoy here."
Publishers Weekly

"A chorus of writers and military experts weigh in on why Ender’s Game is a work of genius . . . Strategist John F. Schmitt provides an account of the novel’s significant role as a model for the Marine Corps’ 'Maneuver Warfare' battle approach, and there’s a perceptive discussion between writer David Lubar and his daughter, a high school teacher, about how Ender’s situation and responses speak to teens . . . Other contributors recall with awe their first encounters with the story, offer detailed analyses of Ender’s psyche and Card’s writerly technical chops, demonstrate that Ender is a classic mythic hero, or mull over the nature and costs of victory . . . This tribute may have some appeal to readers with an analytical bent."
Kirkus Reviews

Ender’s World is a fun and thought-provocative read, evaluating not just the novel Ender’s Game, but also its lasting effect on the science fiction genre. It provides a wide range of viewpoints and the contributors were well-selected, providing something, essentially, for everyone. If you’re interested in brushing up on the story again before the movie releases later this fall, check out Ender’s World for some new perspectives on this science fiction classic.

About the Author

Orson Scott Card is the author of the novels Ender’s Game, Ender’s Shadow, and Speaker for the Dead, which are widely read by adults and younger readers, and are increasingly used in schools.

Besides these and other science fiction novels, Card writes contemporary fantasy (Magic Street, Enchantment, Lost Boys), biblical novels (Stone Tables, Rachel and Leah), the American frontier fantasy series The Tales of Alvin Maker (beginning with Seventh Son), poetry (An Open Book), and many plays and scripts.

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, he teaches occasional classes and workshops and directs plays. He recently began a long-term position as a professor of writing and literature at Southern Virginia University.

Card currently lives in Greensboro, North Carolina, with his wife, Kristine Allen Card, and their youngest child, Zina Margaret.
