The IGMS anthology is where they're collected. Since I wrote those stories in the hope that they would help spur sales of IGMS and lure readers to read the OTHER stories in the magazine so that, eventually, the magazine could be a financially self-sustaining enterprise where new writers could find an audience, my intention is NEVER to make those stories available outside the context of IGMS.

The trouble is that I only have limited time. So it turns out that I wrote several of the stories knowing that they would be incorporated into the novel Ender in Exile. Therefore I have made an exception to the above rule, in that a couple of the stories form part of the text of Ender in Exile.

Even then, though, I hoped Ender fans would get the idea that if they read IGMS, they get previews of upcoming novels, as well as standalone Ender stories available nowhere else.

Meanwhile, the main PURPOSE of IGMS remains to try to draw readers to support good short fiction by writers other than me.

Of course, there's another view, which is that if I had published my Ender stories in other magazines or anthologies, I would probably have been paid enough money to finance IGMS.

But then I look at what IGMS costs to publish and my answer has to be: No way. IGMS is way too expensive for that! <grin>

All I Want is Audio Versions of these stories. The IGMS I have purchased include audio stories. I am a teacher and find that most of the literature I experience for entertainment is in MP3 format.

Plus who doesn't just love Stefan Rudnicki's voice
