slated in reading at 12:16 amEnder book was coming out? I came upon it by chance — there was a reference on someone’s blog about running into Orson Scott Card in a bookstore, and a visit to Card’s site Hatrack.com revealed that Shadow of the Giant is already in stores. Sheesh. The first three chapters are available online.. I do think Card’s writing isn’t as impressive as it used to be, but I’m already in love with the Ender’s series and its characters, so my order for this book has been necessarily placed.
