Of course I won't be posting it anywhere, but it was an absolutely fascinating read.

I presume we are allowed to discuss it, so long as we don't post sections of it yes?

Hooray! I thought it was a really interesting article, and hopefully after work I'll have some more thoughts. I think the biggest thing I liked was the insight into how to construct a believable insight into brilliance, and how that worked in the practical setting of adapting Ender's Game for audio drama (which was really great!)

That article was worth the entire price of admission to On the Fly.

It was a fascinating read. I really appreciated his explanation of why he's such a fan of Ender's Game Alive.

I thought it was very interesting to read how Card's subconscious filled in a lot of details in his novel, and that he only realized the extent of it years later.

His experiences writing plays at BYU seems so obviously related based on how he describes it. It really was an enjoyable read.

That revised aspect felt so natural to the story that I thought it was just something I'd forgotten about it.

One of the things that I think makes Ender's Game a classic is that one doesn't grow out of it.
