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. His most recent series, the young adult Pathfinder series (Pathfinder, Ruins, Visitors) and the fantasy Mithermages series (Lost Gate, Gate Thief, Gatefather) are taking readers in new directions.

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, including his "freshened" Shakespeare scripts for Romeo & Juliet, The Taming of the Shrew, and The Merchant of Venice.

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 frequently teaches writing and literature courses at Southern Virginia University.

Card currently lives in Greensboro, North Carolina, with his wife, Kristine Allen Card, where his primary activities are writing a review column for the local Rhinoceros Times and feeding birds, squirrels, chipmunks, possums, and raccoons on the patio.

Ender’s Game was originally written and published as a short story in 1977. Several years later, Card got the idea for Speaker for the Dead – a sequel – which would only make sense if Ender’s Game were extended into a novel. So he published the novel Ender’s Game in 1984 to critical acclaim. It was followed shortly thereafter by Speaker for the Dead, Xenocide, and Children of the Mind. These books collected are known as the Ender quartet.

Card's novel Ender's Game introduced Ender Wiggin, a young genius who used his military prowess to all but exterminate the ""buggers,'' the first alien race mankind had ever encountered. Wiggin then transformed himself into the ``Speaker for the Dead,'' who claimed it had been a mistake to destroy the alien civilization. Speaker for the Dead picks up many years later (well, thousands actually), when a new breed of intelligent life forms called the ``piggies'' is discovered. This gives Wiggin the opportunity to atone for his earlier actions in Ender’s Game.

As noted, speaker for the Dead takes place three thousand years after Ender’s Game, and Ender has spent most of those three thousand years in interstellar travel, and as a result he appears to be only in his mid-thirties. Valentine is still traveling with him, too. By this time, Ender has learned that he did not really wipe out all of the alien species back when he was young, and he has possession of a cocoon containing a hive queen, whose egg sac is potentially capable of replenishing the species. Ender has learned how to communicate with the hive queen, and he knows that her species is not evil and will never hurt humans again if he allows her to settle on a planet and lay her eggs. In the three thousand years since he wiped out the majority of her species, Ender has gone from being perceived as the hero who saved humanity to being vilified as a ‘xenocide’ – an evil villain who wiped out an entire species in cold blood (even though the military deemed him a hero). His status is semi-mythological, and of course everyone assumes that Ender is long dead and fails to connect the wise, quiet interstellar wanderer named Andrew Wiggin with the horrible murderer of the past.

What’s interesting is that Ender isn’t really the protagonist of Speaker for The Dead. This novel is about a group of Portugese-speaking Catholic colonists who have settled a planet called Lusitania. These colonists share their planet with a sentient species that they call the pequininos, or “piggies”. The heroes of Speaker for the Dead are the scientists (‘xenobiologists’) and anthropologists (‘xenologists’) who have been granted permission to initiate closely guarded contact with the piggies. All other humans on the planet are kept contained in an area bounded by an electric fence at all times.

The novel really focuses on Novinha. She is a woman whose life – like Ender’s – is circumscribed by guilt. She was part of a family who is charged with studying this species on Lusitania and the small community of the colony in which they live. We see 3 generations of this family over the course of the book, but most of the novel focuses on Novinha and her 6 children. Novinha life is one of constant interactions with death, on several occasions and twice at the hands of the alien species. These deaths deflate humanity's hope of peaceful coexistence with the aliens.

Into this mix comes Ender, who is now a Speaker for the Dead, which is a sort of humanist priesthood of people who learn about those who have died and speak the truth of their lives, their hopes, fears, intentions, virtues, and vices. He is called by several members of the family to speak the deaths they have experienced in an act of defiance of the Catholic hierarchy that essentially runs the colony.

Ender comes to Lusitania, solves everyone’s problems with his infinite wisdom, falls in love with Novinha and decides to stay with her forever, gets to know the piggies and discovers that – of course – they are not really evil, JUST MISUNDERSTOOD. He figures out why they keep killing off everyone that Novinha loves, and he arranges for them never to do this again. He also reveals his identity as the original Ender and manages not to get murdered by an angry mob. He establishes the hive queen on the planet – which will now be the only known planet where three sentient species will live side by side.

It all ends on a very beautiful, hopeful note. Yes, Ender is able to atone for his sins. Seems like the sort of conclusion that is tied up with a nice little bow...except that everyone, including Ender, are just so broken….it makes the ending that much more believable and satisfying.

Speaker for the Dead does have a bit of a religious agenda, as all the Ender novels do – and religious proselytizing disguised as sci-fi can be off putting to say the least. Card’s Mormonism is occasionally on display here and it's bothersome. But that aside, there are some fare criticisms of the Catholic church here as well. Catholicism has a long history of abusive missionary work through the use of canon law and crusades to coerce conversions and to subdue heathens. The catholic tradition in the Latin West grew out of the foundations of Rome which claimed the founding of a settlement or a “colony” was in a sense, a military expedition. Card's imaginating of the Catholic church expanding its governmental reach to the stars and its attempt to run the colony of Lusitania is fascinating and raises interesting questions about belief, governing, and politics. And his critique of the church, in the form of Ender as The Speaker for The Dead is spot on. Yet, while Card critiques the Catholic religion he also inserts his own religious stance in the narrative as mentioned. The life stages of the "piggies" in Speaker for the Dead correspond to phases of life in the LDS's plan of salvation which is kind of weird.

However, don’t let this stop you from reading this important work of sci-fi.

Why? This book has a lot to say about the trans formative powers of isolation and suffering. It has a lot to say about the corruptible nature of humanity and our institutions. It is a book about morality, guilt, and redemption. Yes, this is a heavy, adult themed sci-fi novel about philosophical concepts. Yes, this isn’t the YA novel we loved growing up (Ender’s Game). This is about becoming an adult, dealing with our past, and recognizing the flaws within ourselves and within the systems we create.

This book reminds us that:

“Sickness and healing are in every heart. Death and deliverance are in every hand. The truth is a beautiful and terrible thing, and therefore should be treated with great caution.”

Not only is Speaker for The Dead an amazing work of sci-fi. It’s one of the best pieces of literature ever written.

Ender's Shadow is the first novel in The Shadow Series by Orson Scott Card. Ender's Shadow (published in 1999) is a parallel science fiction novel, taking place at the same time as the novel Ender's Game and depicting some of the same events from the point of view of Bean, a supporting character in the original novel.

Bean, in many ways, is a more interesting character than Ender. Bean is a homeless child living in the hellish streets of Rotterdam in roughly 2170 after escaping as an infant from an illegal genetic engineering laboratory. Highly intelligent and extremely young, Bean is mainly concerned with his need for food. He joins a large gang of children led by a girl named Poke and sets up a system in which they can all receive nourishment at a local soup kitchen. Specifically, the group gets a bully, Achilles, to be their protector. However, Achilles is increasingly ruthless, protective, and methodical.

Luckily for Bean, his incredible mind, creativity and determination bring him to the attention of Sister Carlotta, a nun who is recruiting children to fight a war against the Buggers. Soon enough, Bean finds himself at Battle School alongside of Ender Wiggin where Bean's intelligence becomes apparent (he is even more intelligent than Ender). We get to see the events that happen in Ender's Game from Bean's point of view and we realize that Ender isn't exactly the savior character we thought he was (he was quite cruel to his friends from Battle School when he led "simulations" in Command School on Eros). Bean is not as perfect as Ender Wiggin either, and although he struggles to understand Ender, he becomes Ender's ally. Though Bean is cold at first, the kind of child who weighs the costs of hugging the nun who saved him from the streets, he wants to understand the respect and love that Ender wields. Thus, Bean's story is twofold: he learns to be a soldier, and to be human.

I love the way Card reweaves the story he told in Ender’s Game, making it both the same and different. And I found it quite emotionally touching and heartbreaking as well, particularly the final battle scene and the end where Bean is united with his parents.

Reread. This is still an intriguing combination of action, military and political strategy, war games, and psychology; and an interesting look at the nature of empathy vs. violence.

Well, I'm not the target audience for this book. It was fun, but kinda annoyingly simplistic in places, particularly in Ender's perfection (and it was difficult to believe that no-one would have had the same insights he had that allowed him to win). Although I was at times slightly worried about the fascist overtones of the book, in the final analysis I thought it presented the moral ambiguities and difficulties clearly, but still subtly. I won't rush to read the other books, but wouldn't avoid them either.… (mais)
