Orson Scott Card is a genius
« on: February 01, 2006, 03:39:55 PM »
I cast him aside as mediocre scifi the first time I read Enders game. But then,
a few months ago, I re-read it, and the three sequels.
  His take on diplomacy is unique.
The roleplaying games were never a danger.
Indeed, the only ones with real room to be
offended were pagans. As for me, I wish we druids could turn wood to gold. ;)

I like Ender's conflict resolution methods.
One can cure oneself of the not un- formation by memorizing this sentence: A not unblack dog was chasing a not unsmall rabbit across a not ungreen field.  Orwell

(13:23:49) (Chinchillas): See? You can write like an 4$$h013 when you're not writing like a pompous 4$$h013.

Could someone explain who he is please, the name sounds vaugley familier.
A necromancer is only evil in the eye of those who hate him and only hated by those who do not understand him.
