Most Helpful Customer Reviews
The eighteen stories selected for this anthology were first published in the online magazine Intergalactic Medicine Show in 2006 and were considered the best from the four IGMS issues. Mr. Card provides four fine Enderverse short stories not seen in printed form before. Although some of the contributors are acclaimed talents like David Lubar and David Farland (Camelot never looked so fresh) fans will also appreciate the entries by less famous authors as Mr. Card and Mr. Schubert introduce Enders readers to endless possibility of meeting talented writers. There are no losers as all the tales are entertaining. Especially fascinating are the Rapture tale 'To Know All Things That Are in the Earth' by James Maxey, a pair by Eric James Stone, and Tom Barlow's satirical Pollyanna 'Call Me Mr. Positive'. Also adding to the freshness is Aaron Johnston¿s comic book style ¿Fat Farm¿ based on a story by Mr. Card. This compilation is superb and should send the audience to the OSCIGMS website. --- Harriet Klausner
