Poll #1111971 Ender Christmas

Without looking, did I make this up or not? Orson Scott Card returns to the universe of Ender's Game, with a heartwarming novella for the holidays, in which Ender teaches another Battle School kid about the true meaning of Christmas.

Yup, that sounds plausible!

Maybe it's a satire.

I don't believe you. You made that up.

I get warm fuzzies just imagining it. Ender's Game was always my favorite feel-good book.

given his recent complete slide into suck I'm forced to vote "plausible"

Hell, I'm a little surprised we haven't seen more versions of the Ender story from Card. Among those I almost expect to see hitting the bookstores:
  • Cleaning Up After Ender - from the point of view of a janitor at the Battle School
  • Driving Mister Ender - from the point of view of the shuttle pilot who first brought Ender to Battle School
  • The Education of Ender - from the point of view of the director of the Battle School

don't forget Ender Does Dallas and Ender Tells You Why Your Liberal Views Are Wrong

If I had time, I would write up an Ender version of the Christmas story, in which Herod orders that all third-born children be rounded up.

My vote is a cheat, 'cause I saw it in the store already. :-)

I second arcanology's comment about the slide into suck.

Having read that in fact this is real I third my own comment with an extra boot to the head for Card

Your current mood kind of gives it away.

True. Doing the "Did I make this up or not?" thing only really works if it's a recurring question, and I don't actually want to have to make up lots of fake things kind of making fun of people. :}
