Tor Books is thrilled to reissue this bestselling Ender novel with our new look for the novels of Orson Scott Card.
“Orson Scott Card has made a strong case for being the best writer science fiction has to offer.”—The Houston Post
With Children of the Mind Card continues the story of Ender Wiggin: hero of the Hugo and Nebula Award-winning Ender's Game, the original Speaker for the Dead, and the hated Xenocide who murdered an entire planet. Now his adopted world, Lusitania, is threatened by the same planet-destroying weapon that he himself used so many thousands of years before. Ender’s oldest friend, the computer intelligence that has evolved with him over 3000 years, is about to be killed by the Starways Congress. The interstellar government has finally discovered Jane’s existence and fears her control of the galaxy-wide interlocked network of computers and ansibles.
Jane can save the three sentient races of Lusitania — the Pequeninos, the Hive Queen’s daughters, and the human colony. She has learned how to move ships Outside the universe, and then instantly back to a different world, abolishing the light-speed limit. But it takes all the processing power available to her, and the Starways Congress is shutting down the Net world by world.
Children of the Mind is the fourth book in Orson Scott Card's Ender Quintet.
