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.
They were immediately and absolutely recognizable as adventurers... They were hardy and dangerous, lawless, stripped of allegiance or morality, living off their wits, stealing and killing, hiring themselves out to whoever and whatever came. They were inspired by dubious virtues.  China Mieville - Perdido Street Station

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.
