We were discussing books that all the world seems to revere with a kind of unholy adoration while you, the last sane soul in all the universe, stand baffled by the love. Well, that's not exactly how I feel about Ender's Game, but I certainly am a bit mystified by its fanbase. It's one of those cases where a book was released for the adult market, caught on with the young 'uns, and was then rereleased with a laughably inappropriate kid-friendly cover years later. Observe:
Hee hee. Wait till the kiddies get to the penis scenes.
Anyway, it looks as if the movie version is in a bit of a standstill these days. Dark Horizons reports that for Orson Scott Card, "the big-screen version of his novel Ender's Game has been put into turnaround at Warner Bros. Pictures." Ask Card, the sole-screenwriter, however, and he'll tell you everything is sunshine and roses. Shopping this puppy around to other studios? "A good thing". Alrighty then. But between this and writing defenses of Severus Snape, I don't know where the man gets the time to do any writing these days.
