Ender's world : fresh perspectives on the SF classic Ender's game( )

7 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 195 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Orson Scott Card's Ender's Game is a classic of science fiction. Though it began its life as a short story, it was later expanded into a Hugo and Nebula Award-winning novel, served as a springboard for a much larger universe of stories, and finally, has been made into a feature film. In Ender's World almost two dozen writers of science fiction, fantasy, and young adult books offer new perspectives on the 1985 novel, along with insights gleaned from other Ender stories that fit within the Ender's Game chronology. Edited by Orson Scott Card himself, who also provides an introduction to the anthology as well as to the individual essays, Ender's World is aimed both at readers who have kept up with the many books that came after and at those who simply want to revisit the original novel

Society's child : my autobiography by Janis Ian( Book )

4 editions published between 2008 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Janis Ian was catapulted into the spotlight in 1966 at the age of fifteen, when her soul-wrenching song 'Society's Child' became a hit. An intimate portrait of an interracial relationship, 'Society's Child' climbed the charts despite the fact that many radio stations across the country refused to play it because of its controversial subject matter. But this was only the beginning of a long and illustrious career. In this fascinating memoir of her more than forty years in the music business, Ian chronicles how she did drugs with Jimi Hendrix, went shopping for Grammy clothes with Janis Joplin, and sang with Mel TormE'all the while never ceasing to create unforgettable music. In 1975, Ian's legendary 'At Seventeen' earned two Grammy awards and five nominations. Her next two albums brought her worldwide platinum hits. But after seven albums in as many years, she made a conscious decision to walk away from the often grueling music business. During this period, she struggled through a difficult marriage that ended with her then husband's attempt to destroy her, and a sudden illness that very nearly cost her her life. The hiatus from music lasted for close to a decade until, in 1993, Ian returned with the release of the Grammy-nominated Breaking Silence. Now, as she moves gracefully into her fifth decade as a recording artist and writer, Ian continues to draw large audiences around the globe. In Society's Child, Janis Ian provides a relentlessly honest account of the successes and failures'and the hopes and dreams'of an extraordinary life
