I'm at college and don't have my books with me, can someone post the section of text from one of the "Shadow" books when Bean or Petra said that their enemies were 3 steps ahead and then someone else said something about them being 5 steps ahead?

Battle School Slang

I wanted to put together a list of all the Battle School slang and what each of them means.

Word: Ho
Meaning: Hello
Origin: unknown
In a sentence: Ho, Ender.

Re: The greatest day ever!

This has got to be the greatest day ever! I woke, and went over to my computer to find an e-mail from Scott, and a second one from Mr. Peterson (he says to call him "Wolfgang," but I think I should actually meet him in person, first...but I digress). The script is complete. It's been green-lighted ...

alright, I'll look for a book signing to try to talk to him at too. Wouldn't there be an endercon when the movie comes out possibly?

I read EG first, then the entire shadow series, but I think ES did cast a negative light on ender in some ways. For starters, Bean thought that ender noticed him getting undressed when he didn't in enders game. There was the also thing of bean taking offense at a lot of things that ender said. But I...

It was a good read and it went by pretty fast. The quotes at the beginning of every chapter were really good quotes in my opinion. I thought it was set up well in the beginning and it never really lacked action. If you read it for about 15-30 minutes a night you can be done in a week. It's worth the...

maybe the script will allow them to have different dialogue where they say what they are thinking to some extent, but that will really take away from some of the depth of the book.

The "Ask orson" thing on hatrack would just allow him to answer the questions he found most interesting or whatever, not all of them. I saw a professional athlete who had something like that.

So if that plan is shot, does hatrack have a "ask orson" thread where you can ask questions and he answers some of them or something like that?

No, me reminding him of one of his characters is the fantasy part, not going to happen. But the other part, I've heard from people who have met him in bookstores and talked to him so I think it could happen.

Orson Scott Card

We know he lives in Greensboro, NC, but has anyone ever gone there and looked him up? He has to be in the phone book right? I always have this daydream of me going to NC, looking him up in the phonebook, and stopping by and chatting about the books and having him tell me how much I remind him of Cra...

The only role I'd be fit for would be an older dink, I'm too old for battle school, and I can't go to command school for another year.
