On 20th of January (12h00), Joel Cunningham wrote already an article about the (exlcusive) cover reveal


Exclusive Cover Reveal: Children of the Fleet by Orson Scott Card

The universe of Orson Scott Card’s Ender’s Game hasn’t stopped expanding in more than 30 years. What began as a short story and grew into a Hugo-winning novel, then a quartet of books, has been augmented with prequels, sequels, and side-quels. Later this year, Tor Books will publish another one: Children of the Fleet, Card’s first solo Ender novel since 2008, and today, we’re giving you an exclusive peek at the cover art.

Set at the same time as the events of the Ender’s Shadow series and in the wake of the Formic War, Children of the Fleet returns to the Battle School where Ender made his bones. Now the Fleet school, it trains the best and brightest children to lead humanity’s colonization efforts. Check out the cover art, by series mainstay John Harris, below the official summary, and preorder the book, available in October.

After the Third Formic war was won by Ender Wiggin, the alien threat to Earth was over. The terraformed Formic worlds were open to settlement by humans and the International Fleet became the arm of the Ministry of Colonization, run by Hirum Graff. MinCol now runs Fleet School on the old Battle School station, and still recruits very smart kids to train as leaders of colony ships and colonies.

Dabeet Ochoa is a very smart kid. Top of his class in every school. But he doesn’t think he has a chance at Fleet School, because he has no connections to the Fleet. That he knows of. At least until the day that Colonel Graff arrives at his school for an interview.

Children of the Fleet is a new angle on Card’s bestselling series, telling the story of the Fleet in space, parallel to the story on Earth told in the Ender’s Shadow series.

Preorder Children of the Fleet, available October 10, 2017.

Next to that, the tweet from November 2015, let me think the title of the series would be "Children of the Fleet".

And with as first novel title "Fleet School".

The information on Amazon (and in the exclusive cover reveal on Barnes & Noble) suggest otherwise:

With the title of the novel "Children of the Fleet".
