Enderverse

Enderverse

‘Ender’s Game’ was originally published as a short story in the August 1977 issue of ‘Analog Science Fiction and Fact’. The novel version came about later in 1985. Since then, the ‘Ender’s Game’ series has grown to include many more novels, short stories, comic books, a movie, an audio play and several reference materials.

The ‘Ender’s Game’ series is often referred to as the Enderverse or Ender Saga. Enderverse canon can be organized into three tiers. Materials written, co-written, or edited by ‘Ender’s Game’ author, Orson Scott Card, are tier one canon. This mostly includes novels and short stories. Materials written by another author, but authorized by Card are tier two canon. This mostly includes comic books. Materials Card has not helped develop or at least not helped develop in a sizable manner are tier three canon. This mostly includes film and television.
