Science Fiction in the News Articles
Related to material in Ender's Game
by Orson Scott Card

One of the best novels of the 1980's, Ender's Game won both the Hugo and Nebula awards for best novel in 1985. Aliens have attacked the Earth twice - and won both times. The military, in an effort to secure the future of the species, take groups of genius children to train them in the arts of war - in the form of increasingly sophisticated games. Can Ender Wiggin save the planet? Great book.
