I read Homebody, then Treasure Box, and I've just finished Lost Boys yesterday, and I have to say it's my favorite thus far. In one of Orson Scott Card's Interiews, He talk about an upcoming book that he is in the process of writing that i in the tradition of these other three I have mentioned. The Interview was several years back, and I was wondering if andyone might have a clue what he was talking about? Here's the direct quote

What are your current writing projects?

I'm working on Rachel and Leah (the next book about the Women of Genesis), a book of poetry (which should appear around Christmastime), a story collection, a new contemporary fantasy novel (in the tradition of Enchantment, Lost Boys, Homebody, and Treasure Box), and the next Shadow novel, called Shadow of the Giant.

I'm pretty sure he's talking about Magic Street there. It's an excellent book. Highly recommended.

Oh yeah.....I forgot about that one. I read that too. (Along with The Ender and Shadow Series). Then my next question is: How is The Abyss?

Gazing into you.

Not if he isn't gazing into the abyss in the first place.

I got in a huge fight with my sister over "The Abyss" because she had read the novelization, and I hadn't and we went to see the movie and I didn't like it, and she was trying to explain to me how the characterizations in the book were much better. I couldn't handle the resuscitation scene. Do we really have to post a spoiler warning for a movie that came out half my lifetime ago?

Oh, and I loved Magic Street but probably for reasons that would not be generalizable to most people.
