Ender's Game: A History

In addition to his weekly column, Uncle Orson will be writing shorter columns throughout the week - sometimes even daily. Some of these columns will appear as part of his weekly Uncle Orson Reviews Everything. However, some of them will not.

To guarantee you don't miss out on anything Uncle Orson has to say, we are introducing Uncle Orson On the Fly - a paid subscription to pretty much everything Uncle Orson has to say.

Also available on audio

One hundred years before Ender's Game, the aliens arrived on Earth with fire and death. This is the story of the First Formic War.

Victor Delgado beat the alien ship to Earth, but just barely. Not soon enough to convince skeptical governments that there was a threat. They didn’t believe that until space stations and ships and colonies went up in sudden flame.

And when that happened, only Mazer Rackham and the Mobile Operations Police could move fast enough to meet the threat.

Fans of Ender's Game will thrill to Orson Scott Card and Aaron Johnston's Earth Afire.

"If human beings are all monsters, why should I sacrifice anything for them?"
"Because they are beautiful monsters..., And when they live in a network of peace and hope, when they trust the world and their deepest hungers are fulfilled, then within that system, that delicate web, there is joy. That is what we live for, to bind the monsters together, to murder their fear and give birth to their beauty."
