I read about it recently and didn't really know what to think about it. OSC hasn't talked much about it, as far as I'm aware.

I think Wikipedia has an entry on it.

It appear to be a novelized expansion of the storyline that has been running in the Formic Wars comics series by Marvel.

If you have been reading the comic, or looking forward to the novelization, OSC's co-author Aaron Johnston is sometimes talking/tweeting about it on his twitter!

I myself have been buying, but not reading, the comics, mostly because I feel like there's a lot of character thought and stuff in classic OSC style I'd love to read. Reading the comic leaves me a bit unsatisfied - perhaps when I've read the novel, I can immediately pick up the comics and say "Oh, that's what it looks like, that's the spatial relationships in that scene," but for me, the Ender's Game series is about the deep introspective bits, so I miss them when they're gone.

Which, now that I think about it, probably makes me not the ideal Ender's Game film-watcher...oh, dear.

Ohhh, I too am soooo nervous about the film. Really, its impossible for me no to go and watch it, but I really hope there wont be much about it on the Internet and TV. Just allow me to forget about it if I want to...
