Orson Scott Card: Praise for work of ‘Ender’s Game’ director, movie executives

The popular science fiction novel “Ender’s Game” started as a short story in 1977 and is scheduled to debut as a movie Nov. 1, starring Harrison Ford and Ben Kingsley.

The book, by BYU alumnus Orson Scott Card, is set in a futuristic culture where the government breeds genius children and trains them as soldiers to prepare for the next attack by a hostile alien race. The novel claimed Nebula and Hugo awards — prestigious in the science fiction genre — and is on the Marine Corps reading list because of the leadership principles the book teaches.
