question for anyone that knows:
i own both ender's game and speaker for the dead. both of those books are offered with many different varieties of covers. the ones i have are taller than the other editions. they're thinner and just bigger in general, probably about 8" tall, 6" wide, as opposed to normal paperbacks, which are about 6" tall, 4" wide. i can't find a copy of xenocide with that type of cover. does anyone know if it exists?

Hey:) So, noone is posting here right now, and i probably won't get an answer, but is Orson Scott Card good? My sister read Ender's Game and she told me it was, but I'm not the hugest fan of science fiction. What's it about, if anyone's there?

Probably just an aouthor's mistake....I know that if I ever write a book that there will be TONS of mistakes like that in it

In Speaker for the Dead (pg 80) valentines mentions that she has a daugeter, Syfte who is 4 and a son, Ren who is 2. This is 4 years after Ender left for Lusitania. Now in the second chapter of Xenocide, 22 years after Ender has left, Syfte is 22 but has a 20 year old sister by the name of Ro ( and a 16 year old brother named Varsum). So what happened to Ren? He should be 20 if Syfte is 22 and Ro should'nt exist, unless they are twins but there was no mention of that, and plus Valentine only has 3 children it was implied in the last chapter of Speaker. Any ideas? Perhaps an Author's mistake?

I read Ender's Game as a teenager when it was published as a short story/novella in Science Fiction/Analog magazine. I would pay for a copy and shipping, if it wasn't outrageous, but the full-length novel didn't feel the same to me AT ALL. Can anyone help? Thanks. Dave

I have no idea. They haven't said much about it. I'll try to research it.
