Ok. For the 1150th post of this thread, I will suggest a title that has NEVER been mentioned before ... *drumroll*

......
.........
.............

Ender and the FSU Textbook Deferment Plan

[Big Grin]


(Ok, so I'm not very creative. But hey! It hasn't been suggested before, has it?)

I just saw this thread. More books about Ender as a young person = totally rockin' in my book.

As for titles, "Ender: Spaceman!" has a kind of "Snakes On A Plane" feel to it. I sort of like it. I'm no help at all, am I?

Speaking for Ender

Just kind of a thought but at some point he becomes speaker and at almost that instant he also becomes Ender the xenocide. it might be a good time to fake his own death and just become Andrew Wiggin Speaker for the Dead. kinda hard to work in but all the good ideas are already taken. just kind of a side thought what about after the Children of the Mind.... I need closure..

There are way to many posts and pages for me to read them all, so I dont know if this has been offered as a title, but for the tie in Book: Shadows End

As far as a book right after Ender's Game, that is a more difficult matter, however I beleive that Ender Dibilitated...I've heard good arguments for Ender Adrift, but iI feel that dibilitated says it all, Ender is nearly insane, and it would take a challenge from a strong adversary (Achilles Jr) to snap him out of his drift.

Also I wonder if after 1100 posts OSC even reads the board any more...I sure hope he does, but with such a busy life I don't expect too much.

"Ender and the Child of the Giant"

Someone posed "Ender's Giant," which I also enjoyed.

I would also like to mention that ever since reading SOTG I've been very curious about Bean and the babies he took with him. Will they ever reunite with the one Randi raised? With Ender? Or are they just as well as dead, like Petra conceded? Furthermore, if one of Enderís Jeesh does lead the colony that Randi joins, if they ever encountered Beanís child they would notice how very small he was... like someone they used to know...

i didnt have time to look through all the pages so these might have been taken already.

Ender's Crime (focus on the view of the xenocide)

Ender's Phantom (too much like shadow, but could refer to the meeting of jane or beans kid)

Ender's Rebirth (when he stops being ender and starts being speaker)

Enderwars: Episode 2, attack of the clone (couldnt resist)

Twilight of the speaker (doesnt mention ender but could build role of speaker for the dead)

Ender's friend or enemy is too broad, it also doesn't have the certain flare in the title that some of his books have. i suggest Ender's Giant.

i'm thinking it's hard to make title if you don't know anything about achiles flandres 2. we know bean was the second best after ender so enders shadow makes sense, but if we don't know whether the guy is good, bad, smart, dumb, how can we make a good title.

Since Ender's Game was followed with Ender's Shadow (Bean) and this is a meeting of the books, I think it should be called:

"Face To Face"

Ender's meetings
Ender's encounters

I have so many ideas floating around in my head. I can't wait to read how you tie the books together and hopefully explain some things more. I'm almost giddy with excitement.

Hey everybody! It's prolly been a year since I posted on here, I see a lot of new ppl. That's awesome. I hate to take this tone but Mr. Card, GET THE LEAD OUT, I mean it's great that we have more Advent Rising to look fwd to (hopefully the next one will be on the 360) but seriously, we neeeeeeeeed a new Ender/bean book. you announced that there would be the two new book a while ago and there isn't so much as a release date yet. Don't get me wrong, I'm a big fan, the Ender series was the first set of books i ever really liked. I just hope I'm not 45 when we see a new book.

I don't know if this has already been suggested,

But since this story seems to mainly focus on Ender's progression from hero to Speaker....

Why not take a lesson from Ender himself? Speak plainly, not confusing the truth with too many words..

i.e. simply title the next book 'Ender'

Maybe it's a dumb suggestion but hey.

I don't think it would fit this particular book, but when I saw that the title for the tie-in novel was "Shadows in Flight" I was kinda disappointed. I thought for sure it would either be called "Children of the Shadow" (since the current latest book in the Speaker series is "Children of the Mind"), or "Shadow of the Mind" (For the same reason).

The first is obviously more literal in the sense that they are indeed the "Shadow's" children, or the second title could be used if you wanted something a bit "deeper". Either way, both of them will sound familiar to anyone who has read either series. (of course, its possible that one of these might be the title of the NEXT book, but it won't work as well since "Children of the Mind" will no longer be the previous title)

How about:

Ender Is Really Andrew [Wink]

I seem to be remembering that from Ender's Game...is that correct?

So has OSC finally decided on a title, or what? I'm guessing he's given up on this thread. [Razz]

Well, it seems that the title may already have been decided and parts of my idea have been suggested before but I figure I'll suggest it anyway.

Ender's Fame and Infamy

I assume that a large part of this book will be the personal struggle of Ender to understand who he really is. As his previous persona becomes a focus of hate and disgust (infamy) and his anonymous works become the focus of respect and admiration (fame) he has to chose between accepting the cruelty and hatred directed towards his true self, revealing himself as Speaker for the Dead which takes away a lot of the power that anonymity gives, or living his life under an assumed persona (Les Mis-ish "and must my name until I die be no more than an alibi?"). I think the contrast between fame and infamy will be pivotal. Also fame rhymes with game and I find that humorous.

Ender's Nemesis.

with he meaning of "nemesis" it could lend to the enigma of the book itself. Who is the nemesis? the "beanstalk" that he meets? Perhaps the fact he's beginning to be known as the "Xenocide" and must live with his shame and it's unbearable.

"Ender's Bean"
Mr. card what will happen to Bean I think that he could be brougt back and saved from death by a cure from 'Outside' and it would be interesting to see what would happen to him and his children and what they found out and also what happens after the end of the ender Quartet with the descoladores??

I had been wondering the same thing myself after rereading that book, "Can Bean be cured now?" Although, now that I'm reminded of it, wasn't Ender subjected to roughly 8 years subjective time through all the light-speed travel it took before Jane found that fun new sci-fi toy? Wouldn't Bean's condition have killed him in all of that time?

Kind of off-topic, but still on the topic of naming one of the future books... Shadows in Flight is supposed to be the Ender-Shadow tie, correct? The following isn't my idea, I heard it from someone on Facebook who posted it here a while ago, but it got no attention. Anyway, what about the name "Shadow's End" as a title, thus portraying the end of the series and also being a homage towards "Ender's Shadow." Too me, Shadows in Flight sounds like an overly dramatic action movie...

Comments?
