I'm a HUGE fan of the Ender series.. And Hatrack River.. And .. And .. This would be an excellent addition to my collection!

I'm very excited about this. I'm curious if he will tie it into the previous 2 Mither Mages stories he did; Stonefather (the novella) was incredible.

My shelves are full, 400 strong
So many books just can't be wrong
But I'm plagued with some self doubt
Will the freakin' floors give out?
These tomes posess a mighty weight
And if I add Card's 'The Lost Gate'
It may be the tipping point
My book may then escape my joint
Cause gravity's a harsh cruel master
Rending wood and slabs of plaster
Down into my neighbor's place
Like an asteroid fall'd from space
So I debate, enter to win?
This might cause me some chagrin
Oh nuts to that- my reassurance?
I'll just upgrade my insurance.

I enjoy some of Card's fiction writing but I'd rather not give financial support to a patriarchal misogynist homophobic nutjob, so winning the book would be the perfect way to experience it.
