Re: ENDER'S GAME Movie Release Date

IMDB has had the release scheduled for 2013 forever. Its good to hear that they're shooting for an early release (March) instead of a holiday one (December). I can't wait until IMDB changes it from "pre-production" to "in production" so I can stalk its progress.

Re: Ender's Game Back in Development

I'm not going to lie, I haven't even FINISHED an OSC book since Ender in Exile and I only finished that because it was an Ender book... The point is, and the majority of us will agree, OSC's writing has really taken a dive. He's also written A LOT of books in a short amount of time -- coincidence? ...

Re: Currently Reading / Just Read (Books/stories/whatever)

Has anyone else ever read the Seven Realms novels by Cinda Williams Chima? I haven't, but I'll definitely check it out. Anything I should know going in? (Like "Book 1 is okay, but Book 2 is where it really picks up" or anything?) ETA: I'm working my way through the second Heroes of Olympus (the sec...

Yes,I know that Hatrack is my friend, but I'd rather ask you

I was on Hatrack today looking at the list of "works in progress," and I was wondering... Are the books going to come out in the order they are in on the list? Top to bottom? If so, that makes me very happy because Ruins is at the top with Gate Thief next. I'm sure someone has tried to predict the f...

Re: Currently Reading / Just Read (Books/stories/whatever)

Has anyone else ever read the Seven Realms novels by Cinda Williams Chima? The first one was Demon King and it didn't really get much publicity despite the author's previous successes. It wasn't until the third book in the series, The Grey Wolf Throne, that Walmart started carrying it and Borders pu...

Re: Pathfinder

I think he finished Ender if you can separate it from Bean.

This is the first I'm hearing of this. Is there more info somew...

Re: What's your LEAST favorite Ender/Speaker Book?

I assume we didn't put Exile on the list because that would make the choice too easy. Xenocide. It didn't need to be split off into its own book which is what happend. It was originally supposed to be Speaker and then a conclusion but OSC felt he needed more room. I don't think he did. The important...

Haven't read any of the pre-Ender books/stories yet. I plan on making it through the OSC collection before long, but I'm a new fan and he has a lot to explore.

I haven't seen the HG thread yet but I'll look for it. So exited about the movie!!!

I like. Tor has this pic available as a wallpaper but it leaves off the words, "Ender's Game." I wanted to use it but was afraid having a little boy (that does look like a little girl) on my computer would make people at Starbucks call the cops. Too pediphilic.

Re: Just finished Ender in Exile. Other suggestions?

I highly recommend Pathfinder as well as The Lost Gate (both by OSC). They are each the first in a series (more fantasy than scifi) so you'll have to wait for the sequels. For a tast of another author, I recommend the WWW series by Robert J. Sawyer. He too has won the Nebula and Hugo and this series...

I think I side with a couple of the posts on Deadline. The only way Summit is going to continue this is as a kids/teen series and that means Bean.

Re: Ender's Game Back in Development

Shortcuts are always taken in Hollywood so the fact that the screenplay calls for Ender and Bean to be in the same Launch group doesn't surprise or discourage me. I find the casting challenges to be more daunting than the screenplay challenges. OSC has turned down enough screenplays in the past (inc...
