Editorial Reviews

“Definitive…A series of introductions and afterwords offering Card’s thoughts on his life and his writing are as absorbing as the stories.” Publishers Weekly
“The award-winning author of Ender’s Game, Speaker for the Dead, and the Alvin Maker series demonstrates his talent for shorter fiction in this collection of 46 stories that range from fantasy and SF to horror and theological speculation…Detailed introductions and afterwords reveal insights into the thought processes of one of the genre’s most convincing storytellers. An important volume; for most libraries.” Library Journal
