The Crow's Word

I try not to put real people in the stories I write, especially not the fantasy bits. That doesn’t go for real places though. “The Crow’s Word” is my latest published novelette, which appears in the current issue of Orson Scott Card’s InterGalactic Medicine Show. 170 more words

Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card

“Human beings are free except when humanity needs them.”

Ender’s Game is a sci-fi novel that revolves around, in a way, the three Wiggin children: Peter, who has a knack for exploitation and death threats; Valentine, the mild-mannered and protective sister; and finally, Ender, a third child in a society with a population limit in which couples are only allowed to have two children, who turns out to be a military and tactical genius. 610 more words
