Re: Peter and Valentine

The thing that irked me about Peter and Valentine in EG wasn't necessarily their characters themselves; it was their parents, especially after reading their exploits in Shadow . The idea that John Paul and Theresa knew all about what Peter and Val were doing and yet they did nothing... that didn't s...

Re: OK, help me out here...

Most of my analysis of Jane's origin comes from the chapter on Jane in SftD, but there's a whole bit in Xenocide about it that I'm fuzzy on the details of (I need to re-download it from Audible and listen to it again, I guess.) Your theory about Jane existing as a tool of the Buggers during the thir...

I think the key phrase is on page 274 of EG: Bean, who couldn't control large groups of ships effectively but could use a few like a scalpel. Bean could never really command huge armies the way Ender could. This was "revealed" (or retconned) in the Shadow series to be a lie told to Ender by Mazer t...

I think it will happen eventually, if only because there will be some global crisis or initiative that will require us to band together, much like the bugger invasion. I just don't see it happening for the next several hundred years, unless some sort of visionary person emerges to make it happen soo...

It would have to be SftD for me, with EG a very close second. If only because I want someone to Speak my life when i'm gone.

OK, help me out here...

I only discovered EG last summer, but since then I've read both quartets like three times ( Xenocide in audio) and I'm working through them a fourth time. Awesome stuff; they single-handedly got me into reading Sci-Fi. I haven't read AWoG yet... I couldn't bring myself to pay $12.95 for a 100+ page ...
