E is for Ender's Game

Twenty-Six Days of Creative Inspiration


One day I lost my children. They had both disappeared into the tendrils of Ender's Universe created by Orson Scott Card. Of course I had to follow them. I stand awed by the world building in this series as well as the permutations of stories that spring from Ender Wiggin's journey. If you write sci-fi, Ender's Game is a must. Anyone who hasn't experienced the wonder that is Ender's story, is cheating themselves out of a great adventure.

I can't wait for the movie.

  12. I've never heard of Enders Game either but it sounds like one to add to my list! And that list is going to be a mile long by the end of the challenge :)

  13. Hi, Leslie! A few weeks ago I heard that this is to become a movie next year. I haven't read the books yet! We had them growing up, but I never got around to them (shame on me!). I'll have to check and see if my parents or one of my siblings still has them. If not, to the library I go! I always hear such great things about the series.

    Nice to meet you and happy A to Z!!
