Author Topic: how active is OSC these days?

It has been awhile since I last visited here. I am a fan of OSC books and like reading his articles when they appear in various places.
But I was wondering if he is okay and still actively writing? I ask because I noticed his latest books have a writing partner and here on the website he is talked about in the third person.
Anyway, I hope all is well and I certainly would love to see some new sci-fi from him.
See y'all

Ps - there may be books of his I am not aware.

OSC is still writing prolifically! It's true that he has collaborated with Aaron Johnston on Invasive Procedures, Earth Unaware, Earth Afire, and the upcoming Earth Awakens (due for release this year, I believe). But he also has two other ongoing trilogies in the sci-fi/fantasy genres. Pathfinder (and its sequel, Ruins) is about a group of teenagers that have mysterious time-manipulating powers on a faraway colony planet, and The Lost Gate (with its sequel, The Gate Thief) takes place in a version of modern-day America where the gods of ancient mythology, from the Norse to the Greeks, were actually powerful wizards, but have been weakened and reduced to obscurity after the closing of a portal between Earth and another planet hundreds of years ago. Both of these trilogies are expected to be completed within the next couple of years, if I recall correctly. OSC has also mentioned that he is working on a sequel to Ender's Game called Fleet School, though not much is known about it. And we're supposedly getting Shadows Alive, the final installment in the Ender series that ties Ender's and Bean's legacies together, at some point.

And don't forget Master Alvin, the ever-elusive, sort-of-promised conclusion to the Alvin Maker series!
