Review

"By mixing real settings, people, and situations with his own brand of characterization and biblical metaphor, the author has created an early America as it might have been if magic had played a part in its development."

About the Author

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.
