THE POLISH BOY: Following the first two 'Bugger' wars, the Hegemony is desperate to counter the alien threat, as the earth hasn't the resources to repel many more attacks. Their search for brilliant military talent reveals a potential genius in the form of young John Paul Wiggin - Ender Wiggin's father to be.

Any science fiction nut who fell in love with Orson Scott Card's Ender at an early age will find this book intriguing. It contains three novellas involving Ender related characters and the original Ender novella, which Card expanded into the novel in 1985.
In "The Polish Boy" we are introduced to John Paul Wiggins, who is so brilliant the Fleet thinks he may be the one. John Paul Wiggins meets, romances and marries an equally brilliant Theresa Brown in "Teacher's Pest".. They later become Ender's, Paul's and Valentine's parents. Then you have a chance to read the original "Ender's Game" before Card expanded it. Followed by the post-bugger world of "The Investment Counselor", where Ender learns he has a computer angel who is a financial wizard.
