Pop quiz: What highly anticipated event takes place in early November 2008? No, it's not Dave Sawicki's 18th birthday. It's the release of the NEW INSTALLMENT IN THE ENDER SERIES BY ORSON SCOTT CARD! WAAAAAHHHHH!!!
Entitled Ender in Exile, Card's new novel is a direct sequel to Ender's Game. That is, it takes place between Ender's Game and Speaker for the Dead. According to the Amazon.com "Product Description," the new book delves further into the histories of Ender, Jane, and Valentine. It sounds very promising and is bound to shatter previously suggested orders in which to read the Ender and Bean books. Also, it's cover kicks ass.
WARNING to all who haven't read Ender's Game: don't read Amazon's "Product Description." (Not that you would.) It's a spoiler.
ALSO: Marvel plans on adapting the Ender books as comics. Additionally, the report praises Card for his attention to detail in the creation of the Ender's Game movie and indicates that the comic will serve as the "small screen" preview of the big screen edition of the book. I'm getting goosebumps.
Here's a song that should be in the movie:
