Literary Oversight Corrected

Orson Scott Card's Ender's Game has aged well...

I read Orson Scott Card's original short story in Analog when it was first published in 1977 and it has stuck with me all these years.  Why I have not read his fine novel until now baffles me; just another example of a misspent adulthood I guess.  In any case I'm glad - very glad - to have corrected my oversight.  Ender's Game is excellent science fiction and a strong piece of storytelling.  It has so much to say about the nature of leadership that anyone with personal or professional responsibility for others who has not read it should.  There is no reason to wait like I did.  Try to get around to reading it before half a lifetime passes you by.
