Orson Scott Card (English Orson Scott Card , born August 24, 1951, Richland, Washington) is an American science fiction writer. Studied at Birham Young University (Provo, Utah). Master of English Philology, professional theater critic. He worked for three years in the Mormon mission in Brazil, after which he settled in Salt Lake City, where he wrote and directed plays in the theater. He took up literature after the theater went bankrupt - mainly hoping to pay off debts with the help of royalties. He made his debut in fiction with the short story "Ender`s Game" (1977). Card became the first writer to win a double of two top SF awards, the Hugo Award and the Nebula Award, for two years in a row, first for the novel Ender`s Game in 1986 and then for its sequel. - Speakers for the Dead in 1987, with readers and critics almost unanimously agreeing that the second book was even better than the first. (It should be noted that the novel "Ender`s Game" "grew" from the story of the same name, written and published in the August issue of Analog magazine back in 1977. By the way, the story was also nominated for a Hugo). Considering that the reworking from stories into novels, and the sequels, are usually weaker, the situation was unique. The next novels in the series "Xenocide" [Xenocide] and "Children of the Mind" were weaker than the original ones and did not receive any awards, which forced the writer to return to the time of Ender`s Game and the teenage theme in the novel Ender`s Shadow [Ender & # 039; s Shadow] about the adventures of the boy Bob, Ender`s classmate at the Military School. Obviously, the new storyline seemed more appealing to Card and he wrote two sequels, Shadow of the Hegemon and Shadow Puppets. Orson Card`s work is by no means limited to the famous Ender cycle. His sci-fi cycles "The Worthing Saga", [The Homecoming Saga] and a number of other not so voluminous (yet) cycles, some of which he gladly co-authored, are widely known. Orson Scott Card willingly shares the secrets of writing in his publicistic books [Character and Viewpoint] and [How to Write Science Fiction and Fantasy] (for the latter, the writer was awarded the Hugo Prize in 1991). In collaboration with Jim Cameron, Card wrote a novel based on the science fiction movie The Abyss. The writer`s fascination with history is reflected in the story "The Redemption of Christopher Columbus" and in the works of the hugely popular series "The Tales of Alvin Maker" in the United States, where Card plays on the field of alternative history , crossing the period of the formation of the statehood of the United States with fantasy motives. In addition to writing, Orson Card, like many others, tried his hand as an editor-compiler of a number of thematic collections: [Future on Ice], [Turning Hearts: Stories of Family Life], [Future on Fire], [Dragons of Light], [Dragons of Darkness]. The writer paid tribute to Russia as well, which is generally quite surprising for an American writer. His fantasy novel [Enchantment] is set in Ukraine and the United States in the 1990s. This is the version of the Sleeping Beauty tale that is awakened by an American student. Orson Card now lives in Ginsborough, North Carolina with his wife Christine and five children. His books are a well-deserved success, he is working on the script for a film based on Ender`s Game, and his plays are regularly performed in the theater. Orson Scott Card`s official website: http://www.hatrack.com Taken from: http://www.fantlab.ru
