Ive been in many forum communties in my time, all waining towards certain topics, but to all of the forums ive been too, hatrack is defently the best. Every topic is aplicable rather then just one set thing, and people here are so open minded and intelectual. Luckiest of all, here at hatrack we have Mr.Card, always full of perspective and willing to speak his mind. I hope you know Mr.Card that you have one of the best forums on this internet. Im pretty certain that everyone else here feals the same way.

Thanks for the kind words - it's a good community here. But as to having to read my work first - there's no such requirement. so i'm glad you didn't wait till you'd read some pre-set number or list of my works.

In fact, for any lurkers, let me give you the complete introduction to the works of Orson Scott Card. This is the first stanza of my first published work, a "poem" that was published in a California educational newsletter (submitted by my fourth-grade teacher, Fran Schroeder):

Spring is coming,
March 21st is nigh
And all the snow that's on the ground
Will melt when the sun is high.

I think that about says it all.

But in case it doesn't: I am perfectly capable of writing complete crap, as my first publication shows. So the LESS of my work you read, the less likely you are to discover all my flaws, and therefore the more likely you are to admire my work, until we find that people who have never read anything of mine are completely convinced that I'm an absolute genius. So the less you've read of mine, the more welcome you are to post here. <grin>

The first OSC typo in [my] recorded history! Do I get a prize?

Now I'm really acting like a lump of excreted content. I'm sorry for being such a Pain in the Forum, Mr Card.
