Hi it was stated on Wikipedia that Orson Scott Card hated working for James Cameron when he did the novel version of The Abyss, it this true?.


I'm hoping that Mr Cameron will make novels set in the Avatar world Cannon like they are in Star Wars setting, I want to create for that world.

Orson Scott Card in no way hates James Cameron. He appreciated Cameron gaving him enormous freedom and leeway in creating the aliens for the novel version of The Abyss. And Cameron was extremely helpful in allowing Card to use the actual footage of the film rather than only the screenplay in writing the novel so he could understand the character's performances, not only the words written on the page.

Oh ok sorry I just wanted to get the facts, James Cameron isn't easy to contact via E-Mail, or his company Lightstorm.


Hey I liked Orson Scott Card's Alivn Maker series,

Glad I could help. And glad you didn't contact Cameron to say you heard Card hated him. That would be unpleasant.

Well I got that quote off Wikipedia, still can't contact James Cameron though. Also about writting my own Avatar fiction that's Fan Fiction and I don't do that.


There is alot of unanswered questions I have about Avatar that I've got.

The other question I need to know about James Cameron does he considered the Lord's Prayer a tribal chant?.


As I see it RDA has the only acccess to space and the Avatar program, I think during the Second movie not obly will the gloves be off with the Navi but there will be no more new Avatars.
