Ender's Game

Postby The_Khan » Tue Feb 13, 2007 11:42 am

Hi my friends, you can read below and find out about the new story from the Ender's Game universe written by Orson Scott Card, which we will be adapting as bonus material in the back of the Red Prophet Hardcover :)

RED PROPHET: THE TALES OF ALVIN MAKER VOL. 1 HC DIRECT MARKET EXCLUSIVE
Written by ORSON SCOTT CARD with Special Introduction by the Author
Adapted by ROLAND BERNARD BROWN
Penciled by RENATO ARLEM & MIGUEL MONTENEGRO
Direct Market Exclusive Cover by RENATO ARLEM
Cover by JOHN BUXTON
In an alternate history of the American frontier, Andrew Jackson is a lawyer from Tennessee, William Henry Harrison has set himself up as governor of Carthage City, and Napoleon is leading an army just south of Detroit. But this is a world where folk magic is real – and where a young boy who is the seventh son of a seventh son has the power to shape the world around him at will. This is the tale of Alvin Maker, an extraordinary man who is destined to change the world and build a magnificent Crystal City. But the Unmaker stands in his way, determined to stop Alvin from fulfilling his destiny. With a violent war brewing between the settlers and the local tribes along the Mizzipy River, Alvin will find himself in more danger than he ever could have imagined. Adapted from the novel by New York Times Best-Selling Author Orson Scott Card (ENDER’S GAME), RED PROPHET: THE TALES OF ALVIN MAKER is an incredible adventure through history and speculation, fusing high fantasy with the spirit of the American Frontier.
Plus, an all-new story written by Orson Scott Card featuring his most popular character - Ender Wiggins, from the Best-Selling and Award-Winning Ender's Game series of novels. And if that wasn't enough, a cover gallery and letter from Card himself.

Damn dude you get around. :D

It can't be trolling. Trolling is saying something provokative trying to start a flame war. I've done it a few times. This would be better called spamming. But seeing that I he brought me The Hedge Knight graphic novel and is working on The Sworn Sword and Guilty Pleasurs I'll forgive him. :D

The_Khan has been around for a very extended period of time (since I've been a member of the old green site), and I believe that he and The Master have been closely acquainted for years as well.
