Nearly 100 years before the events of Orson Scott Card’s bestselling novel Ender’s Game, humans were just beginning to step off Earth and out into the Solar System. A thin web of ships in both asteroid belts; a few stations; a corporate settlement on Luna. No one had seen any sign of other space-faring races; everyone expected that First Contact, if it came, would happen in the future, in the empty reaches between the stars. Then a young navigator on a distant mining ship saw something moving too fast, heading directly for our sun.

When the alien ship screamed through the solar system, it disrupted communications between the far-flung human mining ships and supply stations, and between them and Earth. So Earth and Luna were unaware that they had been invaded until the ship pulled into Earth orbit, and began landing terra-forming crews in China. Politics and pride slowed the response on Earth, and on Luna, corporate power struggles seemed more urgent than distant deaths. But there are a few men and women who see that if Earth doesn’t wake up and pull together, the planet could be lost.

Professor Collings' absorbing study, IN THE IMAGE OF GOD (1990), the first full-length treatment of Orson Scott Card, did not circulate widely following its initial publication. Now it has been republished—along with several key essays exploring directions in Card’s fiction—in trade paperback. Taken as a whole, the augmented study examines Card’s unique vision and literary achievements, a consummate storyteller who blends science fiction and fantasy with his deepest religious beliefs and moral convictions

   



In addition to his weekly column, Uncle Orson will be writing shorter columns throughout the week - sometimes even daily. Some of these columns will appear as part of his weekly Uncle Orson Reviews Everything. However, some of them will not.

To guarantee you don't miss out on anything Uncle Orson has to say, we are introducing Uncle Orson On the Fly - a paid subscription to pretty much everything Uncle Orson has to say.

Ender would be pleased - every one of them was stupid.
