Orson Scott Card 

When: Wed., Nov. 7, 7:30 p.m. 2012

Few writers of science fiction and fantasy are more divisive among my friends than Greensboro's Orson Scott Card. On the one hand, his novel Ender's Game is one of the most popular and acclaimed SF books ever written, one that remains a mainstay of middle schools and high schools and has been read by many people who've never picked up another SF novel. On the other hand, he really, really, really, really, really, really, really doesn't like homosexuality, which he has gone on about at length in many essays and fictional works. That's the short version. He's in town promoting Ruins, the new novel in his series Pathfinder, about a teenager in a fantastic world who discovers he has powers that allow him to see and manipulate the paths of time. Card will read from and sign copies of Ruins starting at 7:30 p.m.; enjoy the event, but don't go getting into a debate with him. There are people there who just want a signature. —Zack Smith
