How long will it take us to find the seven? Not long, it seems.

I've never been able to forgive Xenocide for only being half a novel when I expected it to be a full novel.

I saw that, and am ashamed to say that I didn't even think of posting it [Blushing]

But it was preeety good. And incidentally we have four of the seven already [Big Grin]

I totally agree with the guy, not so much about Speaker, but Ender's Game? Any day.

Xenocide is my favourite, too. Not just from the Ender series but from all of the Card books I've read.

I liked it. I should start reading that one on a regular basis. I only see it when people post them here.

Xenocide has a chapter that I like the best out of the series, but Speaker to me is the best book... In fact the chapter I love in Xenocide is written very much in the Speaker way (or so it seems to me), which would explain it.

I just found out that the guy who writes xkcd lives in Somerville. Have any Boston rackers met him?

Ender's Game is my favorite of the series.

There can be more than 7 fans, but there can only be seven angry fans.

Speaker is my favorite OSC book too. I thought Xenocide was really good, too, though. I was one of the ones who was surprised at the end when it didn't resolve. I thought it was a trilogy up to the very end of Xenocide. [Smile]

That's not what it said. It said "angry letters from all seven fans."

And you call yourself hyperliteral. Hah!

You lost me.

Was that in the comment section or is it some other in joke?

The mouse-over text reads "Cue angry letters from all seven fans of Xenocide."

A lot of Xkcd's humour comes from the alt text, and a lot of times it helps explains the more obscure jokes.

What a horrible combination is hyperliteralness and low reading comprehension.
