'There aren't too many recent sf novels we can confidently call truly moral works, but Speaker for the Dead is one. It's a completely gripping story.' - The Toronto Star

'Achieves and delivers more than almost anything else within the science fiction genre, Ender's Game is a contemporary classic' - New York Times on Ender's Game

A FALLEN HERO - HAUNTED BY HIS PAST, BUT CAN HE CHANGE THE FUTURE?

Ender Wiggin was once considered a great military leader, a saviour for mankind.
But now history judges his destruction of an alien race as monstrous rather than heroic.

In the aftermath of the war, Ender disappeared, and a powerful voice arose: The Speaker for the Dead, who told the true story behind the battle with the aliens. Now, years later, a second alien race has been discovered. But again they are strange and frightening - and again, humans are dying.

It is only the Speaker for the Dead, secretly Ender Wiggin, who has the courage to confront the mystery . . . and the truth.

The Hugo and Nebula award-winning sequel to the classic science fiction novel ENDER'S GAME - soon to be released as a major motion picture starring Harrison Ford.

Review:

Some of the most hauntingly brilliant writing of the decade (INTERZONE on ENDER’S GAME)

An increasingly popular and relevant novel that risks and achieves and delivers more than almost anything else within the science fiction genre, Ender's Game is a contemporary classic (NEW YORK TIMES on ENDER’S GAME)

A gripping tale of adventure in space and a scathing indictment of the military mind (LIBRARY JOURNAL on ENDER’S GAME)

Card has taken the venerable SF concepts of a superhuman and interstellar war . . . and, with superb characterisation, pacing and language, combined them into a seamless story of compelling power (BOOKLIST on ENDER’S GAME)

Almost impossible to put down (LOCUS on ENDER’S GAME)

An incredible ending that knocks you sideways (SUNDAY EXPRESS on ENDER’S GAME)

A great read! (UPI REVIEWS)

Less brash than Ender's Game, Speaker for the Dead may be a much better book. Don't miss it! (ANALOG)

Told with compassion and keen insight, this powerful sequel to Ender's Game is highly recommended (LIBRARY JOURNAL)

From the Publisher:

SPEAKER FOR THE DEAD is the second book of Orson Scott Card's Ender saga - a series which has changed the face of science fiction.

Praise for Orson Scott Card

Haunting, compulsive, urgently readable Story-telling genius' INTERZONE

Full of surprises Intense is the word for Orson Scott Card's ENDER'S GAME' NEW YORK TIMES

The Ender Saga stands out as one of the very few serious moral tales set among the stars enthralling an extraordinarily talented author THE ENCYCLOPEDIA OF SCIENCE FICTION

The emotional punch is still as powerful as ever. Excellent SFX

Almost impossible to put down LOCUS

Book Description Paperback. Condition: new. Paperback. Three thousand planet-bound years have passed while Ender the star-traveller remains young. In that time his name has become anathema, for he is the one who killed an entire race of thinking, feeling beings. No other has been found - until Lusitania is discovered. The young race there offers mankind a chance to redeem the previous destruction. The only humans allowed near are trained xenobiologists. But once again there are tragic misunderstandings. And when Ender, as Andrew Wiggin, is called to Lusitania to speak for the dead - to present to the community the terrible truth of why men have been killed by aliens - his actions can, and will, reverberate through an entire galactic empire. The 2nd book of Orson Scott Card's "Ender" saga - a series which is said to have changed the face of science fiction. Shipping may be from multiple locations in the US or from the UK, depending on stock availability. Seller Inventory # 9780356501857
