Orson Scott Card's Intergalactic Medicine Showby Edmund Schubert
Synopses & Reviews
Bestselling writer Orson Scott Card founded the online magazine Intergalactic Medicine Show in 2006. It has been a big success, drawing submissions from well-known sf and fantasy writers, as well as fostering some amazing new talents. This collection contains some of the best of those stories from the past year.
There is fiction from David Farber, Tim Pratt, and David Lubar among others, also four new Enders Game universe stories by Card himself. This collection is sure to appeal to Cards fans, and be a great ambassador to them for these other talented writers.
"The first collection of short stories from online magazine Orson Scott Card's InterGalactic Medicine Show (), launched in 2005, features noteworthy SF and fantasy stories from a bumper crop of talented new authors. Four new Enderverse stories from Card will initially draw genre fans, but the stories from lesser-known writers are the compilation's real driving force. James Maxey's provocative 'To Know All Things That Are in the Earth' takes a decidedly skeptical look at the Rapture; David Farland's 'The Mooncalfe' puts an interesting — and unique — spin on oft-trod Arthurian legend; and Tom Barlow's brilliantly sardonic 'Call Me Mr. Positive' explores isolation on a deep space mission gone tragically awry. If the quality of these stories is any indication, IGMS has as much promise as the newcomers it showcases." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
