The Hugo and Nebula Award-winning classic is now available in an author's definitive edition. The alien Buggers threaten humanity with extinction, and Earth's ultimate savior may be one small boy.

Portrait
Orson Scott Card is best known for his science fiction novel "Ender's Game" and it's many sequels that expand the Ender Universe into the far future and the near past. Those books are organized into the Ender Quintet, the five books that chronicle the life of Ender Wiggin; the Shadow Series, that follows on the novel "Ender's Shadow" and are set on Earth; and the Formic Wars series, written with co-author Aaron Johnston, that tells of the terrible first contact between humans and the alien "Buggers."Card has been a working writer since the 1970s. Beginning with dozens of plays and musical comedies produced in the 1960s and 70s, Card's first published fiction appeared in 1977 -- the short story "Gert Fram" in the July issue of "The Ensign," and the novelet version of "Ender's Game" in the August issue of "Analog." The novel-length version of "Ender's Game," published in 1984 and continuously in print since then, became the basis of the 2013 film, starring Asa Butterfield, Harrison Ford, Ben Kingsley, Hailee Steinfeld, Viola Davis, and Abigail Breslin. Card was born in Washington state, and grew up in California, Arizona, and Utah. He served a mission for the LDS Church in Brazil in the early 1970s. Besides his writing, he runs occasional writers' workshops and directs plays. He frequently teaches writing and literature courses at Southern Virginia University.He is the author many sf and fantasy novels, including the American frontier fantasy series "The Tales of Alvin Maker" (beginning with "Seventh Son"), There are also stand-alone science fiction and fantasy novels like "Pastwatch" and "Hart's Hope." He has collaborated with his daughter Emily Card on a manga series, Laddertop. He has also written contemporary thrillers like "Empire" and historical novels like the monumental "Saints" and the religious novels "Sarah" and "Rachel" and "Leah." Card's recent work includes the Mithermages books ("Lost Gate," "Gate Thief"), contemporary magical fantasy for readers both young and old. Card lives in Greensboro, North Carolina, with his wife, Kristine Allen Card, He and Kristine are the parents of five children and several grandchildren.

Sciencefiction vom feinsten. Ausgefallen, psychologisch und manchmal verstörend. Kritik an einem System in dem nur der Sieg zählt. Dieser Roman stimmt nachdenklich. Sciencefiction vom feinsten.

Ich hatte zuerst die deutsche Buchversion gelesen und fand sie atemberaubend. "Das große Spiel"(engl."Ender's Game") zählt für mich zu den besten Büchern überhaupt. Um mein Englisch aufzubessern griff ich also zu diesem Buch und war zum 2. Mal begeistert. Das Buch(diese Ausgabe aus den USA) ist in einem sehr leichten und gut verständlichen Englisch geschrieben. Fazit: Geniale Story, geniales (einfaches) Englisch. Man kann dieses Buch ohne zu zögern kaufen.
