October: “Religious Books or Just Good Science Fiction?”
Orson Scott Card’s two books truly did speak to me. I wrote about Ender’s Game in October, then wrote again. Then I read Speaker in December and wrote about that.
All of which makes my resolution quite simple:
To read the other two books in the Ender cycle, Xenocide and Children of the Mind. Then finish off with the first “spin-off” from this tetralogy, Ender’s Shadow.
I’m not really a sci-fi guy. I can count on one or two hands all the sci-fi I ever read. But there are connections here between Card’s books and the memoir I am writing. And I want to understand them better.
