Sometimes it's all about Me


Just off the top of my head I can’t think of many things for which I’d be pleased to be paid a pittance, but writing seems to be one of them. Financially lucrative? Good lord no. Economically sensible? Of course not. =But… getting paid a pittance to write is not a bad place to start as it begins filling a few of those intellectual holes I seem to have been developing lately.

So then, let the shameless self promotion begin. Enjoy.

Nice!

I've been on the fence about the new Ender book. I think I'll add that one to my "wish list" now. Nice review!

Card has come down to a local book store here a couple of times and he's really interesting to listen to. Been working on getting all of my Ender books signed. :)

@SuperMegaDad, Glad the review was helpful; I’d just note that it does feel a little bit like he ran out of steam at the end... That said, there’s actually an interesting chapter at the end of Exile in which Card explains what a daunting project it is to keep track of all the minutiae of the Ender universe and avoid as many contradictions and continuity problems as possible. (And it sounds like he's local to that bookstore; what area of the country is he in?)

Actually, he's on the opposite coast from me over in North Carolina, but we have a nice sci-fi/fantasy/mystery book store down in San Diego he comes to on occasion. Not to mention our yearly Comic-Con event. :) So, we get quite a few sci-fi authors coming to the area around that time of year.
