Author Topic: A selection of citation information frustration.

I'm writing an essay for school, the subject of which is "Prove x book is a classic." Of course, I chose [u]Ender's Game[/u], especially after my teacher declared it impossible.
There's a specific criteria to adhere to when proving classicnessitude, but, save for Theme, which OSC so cruelly tore from me when he deftly said, "Hey, yo, any themes you see are a product of a deranged mind. Oh, snap!" or something very much like that in a reply in his Q&A section.

(By the way, the Ender's Game SparkNotes page is a quite the hoot because of that statement.)

Anyway, my problem is that I have a certain amount of sources I need to use, and it would be a tremendous boon to me if I could use the Introduction of EG as a seperate source. I know that it was first published in Pheonix Rising, and that's where you crazy (Baleheads, was it?) Hatrack webmonkeys come in. I'd kill for the citation information for that magazine!

You wouldn't deny a fellow fan a grade, would ya? *insert puppydog eyes here*

Thank you for whatever information you can provide!

Be sure to mention the awards it won- it being a book that won both the Hugo and Nebula awards. Also you could mention its succeeding books, especially SftD, which also won the Hugo and Nebula awards.

Click on the OSC help desk, and choose Questions about OSC. Write us your mailing address via the form there, and my assistant will send you a photocopy of a Publisher's Weekly article that will help you make your case to the publisher.
