Interesting Questions, Facts, and Information
Card, Orson Scott
Ruth. He was engaged to Ruth, but had to marry Katarina.
Libo. In 'Speaker for the Dead', Marcao was her first husband, but he was sterile. Ender was her husband after she had all her children. Libo was her lover.
Jason. It is Jason Worthing.
Fierce. It's spelt Fears but pronounced Fierce.
Earth. 'The Memory of Earth', 'The Call of Earth', 'The Ships of Earth', 'Earthfall', and 'Earthborn'.
Novinha. Plikt was his student, Jane the voice in his jewel and his friend, and Valentine his sister.
|What is the name of the planet in the 'Ender's Game' Series on which several of its citizens perform odd rituals to please the gods?||Orson Scott Card Novels
Bean. Technically, Bean was named "Julian Delphiki" by his biological parents, although he is not made aware of this until they are on Eros
Issib. Elemak and Mebbekew are Nafai's half brothers, Volemak is his father.
'Enchantment'. Brilliant novel that links fairy tale with reality.
Wastenot and Wantnot. They're all Alvin's brothers (except Armor of God - his brother IN LAW) but Vigor is dead.
'Master Alvin'. 'Prentice Alvin' was the third, 'Crystal City' is the sixth and second last.
|What novel, written by OSC (Orson Scott Card), was the first book ever to win both the Hugo and Nebula Awards for science fiction?||Orson Scott Card Novels
Ender's Game. 'Speaker for the Dead' also won both, but came after 'Ender's Game'
Katerina Taina. This is shown after the plane takes off without them on it, and officials come over to find out why they left. Intense part. I loved it that Baba Yaga's chicken-legs hut was a hijacked 747 from Kennedy.
|Here's a hard one: What was the name of the Polemarch for most of 'Shadow of the Hegemon' (watch your spelling!)?||Novels by Orson Scott Card
Chamrajnagar. Chamrajnagar was Indian, and yes, he was the admiral on Eros. In one of the little anonymous conversations at the beginning of the chapters in 'Ender's Game' you find out that he's talking to Graff.
|Also in 'Ender's Shadow', what was the name of the student who ridiculed Achilles and was therefore on his list "to terminate"?||Novels by Orson Scott Card
Ambul. Ambul helped Bean trap Achilles in the ducts later in the book.
Helga. Helga called him Ulysses because he wandered from soup kitchen to soup kitchen, and Achilles was given his name because of his weak leg (Achilles' heel).
Rooter. The book opens with Pipo watching Rooter's acrobatics. Later, Rooter was found vivisected, or "taken into the third life". Mandachuva, Human and Leaf-eater were other piggies.
|We'll start with an easy one: In 'Ender's Game', when Colonel Graff takes Ender on leave to Earth, in which state of the United States does he take him to?||Novels by Orson Scott Card
North Carolina. This was, incidentally, the last time Ender saw Earth, a rather tragic fate, I think.
Hyrum. His first name is indeed Hyrum. Quite surprising, isn't it? Orson Scott Card only mentions it once in the book. I suppose it's not that important, huh?
her ring. I shall take another quote: "Ender followed father into the parlor. The I.F. officer rose to his feet when they entered, but he did not extend a hand to Ender. Mother was twisting her wedding band on her finger. 'Andrew', she said, 'I never thought you were the kind to get in a fight.'"
|Peter and Ender were playing "Buggers and Astronauts" and after the game, Ender shows that he has blood on his toe. Ender says that it's not his own. Peter answers him by saying what?||"Ender's Game" Quiz 1 (chapters 1-3)
Oh, look! Ender squashed a little cappertiller!. Peter will never openly admit that Ender is any smarter or stronger than he is. Peter just insults him about the blood and pretends to not be worried.
