But they will have little choice.

Orson Scott Card - Unaccompanied ​Sonata and Other Stories
"Far ​beyond the usual fare of science fiction" is how Ben Bova, Executive Editor of OMNI, describes Orson Scott Card's work - and these eleven stories richly bear out that opinion. The title story, a Hugo and Nebula nominee, says as much as can be said about the nature of creativity, the artistic impulse, and pure human stubbornness; "The Porcelain Salamander" is a brilliant and moving fable that will be read and reread; and "Kingsmeat" touches on a truly original horror in the tale of a necessary treason and its consequences. Orson Scott Card demonstrates the dazzling range of his versatility in this collection, from the harsh depiction of merciless training for interplanetary warfare in "Ender's Game" to the tenderly elegiac mood of "Mortal Gods" and the bitter inventiveness of "The Monkeys Thought 'Twas All in Fun" - a "hard science" story that is at the same time more bizarre than the farthest-out fantasy. No story is any preparation for the next: the sardonic view of jingoism in "I Put My Blue Genes On" seems worlds apart from the uncompromising eerie look at the ultimate punishment presented by "Eumenides in the Fourth Floor Lavatory"; and only the sheer outstanding quality of imagination and writing connects the treatment of the supernatural in "Deep Breathing Exercises" and "Quietus." Most short stories, especially in what are called "category fiction," are destined to be enjoyed - if possible - and forgotten. Orson Scott Card's tales will invade and enrich the reader's memory like the work of few other writers.

Orson Scott Card - Christopher Yost - Ender's ​Game: Ultimate Collection
Andrew ​"Ender" Wiggin is only 6 years old. His peers bully him, his parents are aloof, and his older brother is violently resentful of him. He might also be humanity's only hope. Ender is recruited to join the International Fleet's legion of child warriors in training, to report for duty in defense of the planet. Leaving behind the only person who ever understood him--his kind-hearted sister Valentine--he takes on the challenge of becoming a commander in Earth's defenses. His promise is high, and his teachers are sure he will rise to the test--that is, if Battle School doesn't kill him first. Ender struggles to find a place within his soul for tranquility, humanity and a connection with something greater than the brutal mechanics of war and strategy. But when he is thrust into Command School at a vastly accelerated pace, will he crack up on the road to becoming the hero that the human race so desperately needs? Sci-fi legend Orson Scott Card's Hugo and Nebula-Award winning classic is brought to vivid life by writer Christopher Yost (X-Force) and artist Pasqual Ferry (Ultimate Iron Man II).

Orson Scott Card - Speaker ​for the Dead
The ​thrilling sequel to Ender’s Game and winner of the Hugo and Nebula Awards—this full cast unabridged recording includes an original postscript written and recorded by the author. Three thousand years have passed since Ender Wiggin won humanity’s war with the Buggers by totally destroying them. Ender remains young, traveling the stars at the speed of relativity, but a hundred years or more might pass on Earth while he experiences a month-long voyage. In three thousand years, Ender’s books The Hive Queen and The Hegemon, written under a pseudonym, have become holy writ, while the name of Ender itself has become anathema: he is the Xenocide, the one who killed an entire race of thinking, feeling beings, killed the only other sapient race humankind had found in all the galaxy. The only ones, that is, until the planet called Lusitania was discovered and colonized. The discovery was seen as a gift to humanity, a chance to redeem the destruction of the Buggers. This time, the Starways Congress vowed, there would be no tragic misunderstanding leading to war. But once again men die, killed by the aliens in a rite no one understands. Ender, now known only as the Speaker for the Dead, comes to Lusitania to speak for those who have died and discovers that in order to tell the truth about them, he must unravel the secrets of Lusitania.

Orson Scott Card - Aaron Johnston - The ​Swarm
Orson ​Scott Card and Aaron Johnston return to their _Ender's Game_ prequel series with this first volume of an all-new trilogy about the Second Formic War in _The Swarm_. The first invasion of Earth was beaten back by a coalition of corporate and international military forces, and the Chinese army. China has been devastated by the Formic's initial efforts to eradicate Earth life forms and prepare the ground for their own settlement. The Scouring of China struck fear into the other nations of the planet; that fear blossomed into drastic action when scientists determined that the single ship that wreaked such damage was merely a scout ship. There is a mothership out beyond the Solar System's Kuiper Belt, and it's heading into the system, unstoppable by any weapons that Earth can muster. Earth has been reorganized for defense. There is now a Hegemon, a planetary official responsible for keeping all the formerly warring nations in line. There's a Polemarch, responsible for organizing all the military forces of the planet into the new International Fleet. But there is an enemy within, an enemy as old as human warfare: ambition and politics. Greed and self-interest. Will Bingwen, Mazer Rackam, Victor Delgado and Lem Juke be able to divert those very human enemies in time to create a weapon that can effectively defend humanity in the inexorable Second Formic War?

Orson Scott Card - A ​hetedik fiú
Alvin ​Miller reménykedve, de szívében félelemmel várja gyermeke születésének napját. Tudja, hogy egy hetedik fiú hetedik fiának lenni különleges hatalmat jelent, de azt is tudja, hogy egy ilyen varázslatos gyermeknek az ellenségei is nagy hatalmúak, s nem téved: a fia csak úgy születhet meg, hogy bátyja életét áldozza érte és anyjukért. A kis Alvin úgy nő fel az Amerika nyugati tóvidékét elözönlő telepesek körében, hogy örökös veszélyben az élete. Ördögi ellenfele addig akarja elpusztítani, amíg a fiú rá nem ébred mágikus erejére. Alvint azonban szüleinek, öt bátyjának, és cserfes, de szerető nővéreinek szakadatlan figyelme kíséri mindenhová. Kilenc éves, amikor megérkezik közéjük egy profetikus vándor, a fiú életére törő hatalom pedig nyíltan is támadásba lendül... Teremtő Alvin története egy olyan XVIII. századi, alternatív Amerikában játszódik, ahol a folklór valóság: a ráolvasás, bűbáj, hexák és igézések a telepesek mindennapi életének részei. Angliában elmaradt a hosszú életű Cromwell után a restauráció, és a száműzött Stuartok Amerika déli, rabszolgatartó tartományaiba menekültek, a keleti parton tarka nemzetiségi kolóniák és az autonóm indián állam terül el, az északi részen a fundamentalista Zarándokok, még följebb az alattomos francia gyarmatok terjeszkednek, George Washingtont pedig röviddel azután, hogy megtagadta a harcot Jefferson szedett-vedett seregei ellen, lefejezték, így aztán sosem lett elnök. Ebben az Amerikában az öreg Ben Franklin, a szóbeszéd szerint, kora nagy varázslója.

Orson Scott Card - Az ​elme gyermekei
VÉGJÁTÉK-SOROZAT ​BEFEJEZŐ RÉSZE Orson Scott Card Végjáték-sorozata méltán a science fiction irodalom legsikeresebb regényciklusa. Az elme gyermekei című kötet nagyon izgalmas lezárása az Ender univerzumát bemutató sorozatnak, s végre – hosszú évek után – a magyar olvasók is kezükbe vehetik a regényfolyam negyedik, befejező részét. E történet már teljesen elrugaszkodik az Ender gyermekéveit bemutató _Végjátéktól_, valamint továbbviszi a _Holtak Szószólójában_ és a _Fajirtásban_ megismert, az emberiség alapvető kérdéseivel foglalkozó mély gondolatokat. Az elme gyermekei – mindamellett, hogy filozofikus eszmefuttatásaival gondolkodásra készteti az olvasót – Cardhoz méltó történetvezetéssel bír, és cselekményei teljesen magával ragadják az embert. Az elme gyermekeiben a korábban megismert mesterséges intelligencia, Jane körül forognak az események, akinek lététől függ szinte az egész emberiség jövője. Vajon képes-e az ember meghaladni saját magát, és önmagához méltó helyét elfoglalni az univerzum életformái között?

Az Árnyék-sorozat harmadik részében a Hegemónia a bukás szélére kerül, ám az őrült és zseni Achilles az árnyékból, láthatatlan szálakat mozgatva irányítja tovább a hatalomátvételt.

Using ​the lore and the folk-magic of the men and women who settled North America, Orson Scott Card has created an alternate world where magic works, and where that magic has colored the entire history of the colonies. Charms and beseechings, hexes and potions, all have a place in the lives of the people of this world. Dowsers find water, the second sight warns of dangers to come, and a torch can read a person's future---or their heart. In this world where "knacks" abound, Alvin, the seventh son of a seventh son, is a very special man indeed. He's a Maker; he has the knack of understanding how things are put together, how to create them, repair them, keep them whole, or tear them down. He can heal hearts as well as bones, he build a house, he can calm the waters or blow up a storm. And he can teach his knack to others, to the measure of their own talent. Alvin has been trying to avert the terrible war that his wife, Peggy, a torch of extraordinary power, has seen down the life-lines of every American. Now she has sent him down the Mizzippy to the city of New Orleans, or Nueva Barcelona as they call it under Spanish occupation. Alvin doesn't know exactly why he's there, but when he and his brother-in-law, Arthur Stuart, find lodgings with a family of abolitionists who know Peggy, he suspects he'll find out soon. But Nueva Barcelona is about to experience a plague, and Alvin's efforts to protect his friends by keeping them healthy will create more danger than he could ever have suspected. And in saving the poor people of the city, Alvin will be put to the greatest test of his life---a test that will draw on all his power. For the time has come for him to turn to his old friend Tenskwa-Tawa, the Red Prophet who controls the lands to the west of the Mizzippy. Now Alvin must take the first steps on the road to the Crystal City that was shown to him in a vision so long ago.
