In that time his name has become anathema, for he is the one who killed an entire race of thinking, feeling beings. No other has been found - until Lusitania is discovered. The young race there offers mankind a chance to redeem the previous destruction. The only humans allowed near are trained xenobiologists. But once again there are tragic misunderstandings. And when Ender, as Andrew Wiggin, is called to Lusitania to speak for the dead - to present to the community the terrible truth of why men have been killed by aliens - his actions can, and will, reverberate through an entire galactic empire.Hide synopsis

Very Good ++++ A set that has been played, but remains in excellent condition. ***** SYNOPSIS ***** Speaker for the Dead (1986) is a science fiction novel by Orson Scott Card and an indirect sequel to the novel Ender's Game. This book takes place around the year 5270, some 3, 000 years after the events in Ender's Game. However, because of relativistic space travel, Ender himself is only about 35 years old. This is the first book to discuss the Starways Congress, a high standpoint Legislation for the human colonies. It is also the first to describe the Hundred Worlds, the planets with human colonies that are tightly intertwined by Ansible technology. Like Ender's Game, the book won the Nebula Award in 1986 and the Hugo Award in 1987.  Speaker for the Dead was published in a slightly revised edition in 1991. *****NOTE: I NOW HAVE 5 CD AUDIO BOOKS UP. see me for combined shipping and availability. *****MY SHIPPING PLEDGE ***** Orders placed by 4pm CST will be shipped same day.

This is a sequel to "Ender's Game", an excellent sci-fi novel. "Speaker for the Dead" has a very different premise than "Game" and ingenious plotting. Be sure to read "Ender's Game" first. The rest of the Enders books are not worth bothering about; not one of them comes close to "Ender's Game" or "Speaker for the Dead."
This second installment in Card's famous series is almost as good as its predecessor. This book takes the tale of Ender even further. It is slightly more complex in its plot line but it is a truly rewarding read. Highly recommended for anyone who enjoyed the first book and for all fans of science fiction.
