  1. YESS!! best news in a long time. We are so spoiled with the pillar of science fiction Orson Scott Card still going strong and the tolkien of our time, George R R Martin both still writing. It is a good time to be a reader.

  2. I’m so excited! I’ve just finished listening to the First Formic War Trilogy and can’t wait to continue the journey to make it go full circle. Great cliff hanger to set up the next book too. Woohoo!

  3. If they did a one-book “second Formic war” rather than the inevitable trilogy, it might be enough! The last trilogy was far too long to swallow without choking!

  4. I am so glad I stumbled across the Enderverse I have been hooked ever since Ender’s Game.then I just back tracked the trail of books from there. I am completely immersed can’t wait till the next war.

  5. please fellas give me a list of books that you guys have read. if you like this author then I’m sure I’ll like your favorite’s I’m finished with George RR Martin and awaiting his next book which I’m excited for but any list you guys can give me will help greatly

    • You might try Kim Stanley Robinson’s mars trilogy, or Robert Jordan’s light series. The Jordan series runs close to 30k pages total. Good read though.

  6. I’m glad he’s still writing, but I want to see shadows alive come to fruition. I’m sure he is taking his time on it and making everything perfect. I just love bean’s story so much, and I’m curious about the descoladores, bean’s children, and the “second coming” of peter/ender’s second life, not to mention Jane, the pequininos, and especially Achille’s stolen baby that was raised to hate bean! I can’t blame him though, he can get a lot of his other books read this way and can rake in the dough. Cream, get the money, dollar dollar bill y’all

  7. There are other Ender’s out there. An alien ender, a gender ender with three sexes and no waiting. Such potential as Ender falls out of time instead of relativity a new science out of the ansible to sidestep the limits of light and death in black holes. Write and make me a happy man.
