Title: Ender's Game
Author: Orson Scott Card
"Because we've taken some terrible risks, Ender, and we don't want to have every net on earth second-guessing those decisions. You see, as soon as we had a working ansible, we tucked it into our best starships and launched them to attack the buggers home systems."
I first read Ender's Game over 20 years ago and decided that now was the time to re-visit it. Today Scott Card is as well known for his writing advice books as his novels, but if you've not read his fiction before, start with this book - it will not disappoint.
Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme hosted by MizB of Should be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
- Grab your current read.
- Open to a random page.
- Share two "teaser" sentences from somewhere on that page.BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! Make sure that what you share doesn't give too much away! You don't want to ruin the book for others.
- Share the title and author too so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR lists if they like your teasers.
Today's WIP teaser is from The Vegas Screamer, a short story I've just had published in the Serial Killers Anthology by Static Movement. I throught I'd give you er . . .a taste.
They passed a partially burnt road sign that suggested Sam’s Diner was the place to eat. A phrase came into Sol’s mind – you kill um, we cook em. He dismissed it fast; there would be plenty of time for killing later.
That is it for this week's Teaser Tuesday. Are there any books or stories you want to tease us with?
