Different versions of EG?

Postby Purpledog100 » Fri Feb 06, 2009 8:30 pm

My Ender's Game book is published by Starscape and has a different page count than the original one published by Tor. It also doesn't say "author's definitive edition" on it. Is there any difference between the two? My book came out of the teen/kid section at the bookstore, so maybe it's been dumbed down or something.

same version, different size and cover art to make it appeal to the teen crowd more. It's not dumbed down.

well you could argue there was a slight change, OSC eliminated the N word from one scene sometime in the nineties, but that was years before the starscape edition you have was published.
So, Lone Star, now you see that evil will always triumph because good is dumb.

Nigger.
They grinned. Then Ender said, "Better invite Bernard."
Alai cocked an eyebrow. "Oh?"
"And Shen."
"That little slanty-eyed butt-wiggler?"
Ender decided that Alai was joking. "Hey, we can't all be niggers."
Alai grinned. "My grandpa would've killed you for that."
"My great great grandpa would have sold him first,"
"Let's go get Bernard and Shen and freeze these bugger-lovers."
It was changed to something like "Hey, if you didn't <something something>, it'd wiggle too."

hahahahahaha. That's hilarious.
why did Ender say that? It seems irrelevent to me.
