He almost always got the families— once he got the papa monkey, it was pretty easy to get the babies, and once he had the babies, he could use them as bait to get the mamas.
So they got in the family truck and began to range far out into the country. Father and Ire had bribed all the right people, so there was no trouble with police— or the roaming gangs of thugs and brigands who, as often as not, were the police out of uniform, or their brothers- in- law. Ire said that somewhere far away— South Africa or Great Britain or America— scientists were studying the white- face monkey because its cries seemed to be like language.
They knew that other tribes had lost their language, for to survive in Nigeria you had to know at least one of the major languages— Igbo, Yoruba, Hausa— and if you had any hope of becoming educated, you had to learn En glish as well.
How many languages could one head hold? This white- face monkey trade was bringing in cash, which there had never been very much of in their village of Oyi. But he meant the monkeys— not Chinma, even though Chinma caught every single monkey they sold. And who found out that these monkeys were worth something? And who fed you all your life till now? But he was important, and he knew it. Nobody told him to shut up now, nobody in the family forgot his name. He was Monkey- catcher, and when the family was making money, he was right there, up a tree, catching it and bringing it down to them.
Until one day, in a remote stand of trees, not even large enough to call it a woods, surrounded by grassland on all sides, Chinma climbed a tree and found a troop of white- face monkeys that had no timidity at all. They did not scamper away from him. He did not have to coax them.
They just sat there, waiting for him. The papa monkey hissed and showed his teeth. He snapped at Chinma, too. But he did not run away. Chinma avoided the teeth and carried him down the tree. Ire shouted and dropped the monkey, but Chinma immediately caught it again— it was easy, because the monkey ran away so slowly. Ire sat in the cab of the truck sucking on his wound and keeping up a low murmur of cursing. There were only two females— it was not a large troop, because it shared the stand of trees with an aggressive troop of red- bellied guenon monkeys.
Chinma only recognized them because his family had brought him books about monkeys after he became valuable to them. These guenons were very rare, especially such a large group, and most people thought the only ones still alive were in the West Africa Biodiversity Hot Spot. It was very important that these monkeys were here. Chinma decided not to tell the brothers about them.
They would want to catch them and sell them, too, and Chinma knew it would take a lot more bribes because these monkeys were so endangered. Instead, Chinma would tell a scientist about them, so they could get protected. Of course, that would mean going in to Ilorin, where they turned in the white- faces, which they had never let him do. But he had never asked, either. Maybe he was valuable enough now that they would let him. Up a tree, he went for the largest female.
As Chinma inched closer, she seemed to snarl and he expected her to try to bite. Instead, just as he got hold of her by the back and neck, she sneezed in his face. Monkey spit and snot all over his face. And by the time he got down the tree, the stuff had dried on his face. When all the white- face monkeys were in the back of the truck, Ire slid over on the front seat. Ade was stunned. Ire never let a son of one of the other mothers drive the truck.
But when Ade climbed into the cab and turned the key to start the truck, Ire just looked out the window. But then Ire looked at Orson Scott Card is the author of the novels Ender's Game, Ender's Shadow, and Speaker for the Dead, which are widely read by adults and younger readers, and are increasingly used in schools.
His most recent series, the young adult Pathfinder series Pathfinder, Ruins, Visitors and the fantasy Mithermages series Lost Gate, Gate Thief, Gatefather are taking readers in new directions. Card was born in Washington and grew up in California, Arizona, and Utah.

Duplex: A Micropowers Novel. He has been a well-known figure in the gaming world for more than twenty years. He lives in Greensboro, North Carolina. He has narrated more than audiobooks, and has participated in more than a thousand as a narrator, writer, producer, or director. Along with casts of other narrators, Stefan has read a number of Orson Scott Card's best-selling science fiction novels, published by Macmillan Audio. In particular, Rudnicki, with his lulling, sonorous voice, does a fine job articulating Ender's inner struggle between the kind, peaceful boy he wants to be and the savage, violent actions he is frequently forced to take.
This is a wonderful way to experience Card's best-known and most celebrated work, both for longtime fans and for newcomers. Card combines flag-waving, political diatribe and Christian fervor in this bombastic sequel to 's Empire. The young American Empire is confronted with its first major crisis since the Progressive War: the appearance in Africa of a highly communicable and lethal disease. America quarantines the entire continent, while pompous President Torrent dispatches an elite team of supersoldiers to help slow the disease's spread.
Young Mark Malich is compelled by his Christian principles to volunteer to help the benighted African natives, but he winds up in a Nigerian hospital targeted for destruction by malevolent Sudanese soldiers, leading to questions about Torrent's true goals. An evil dictator is named Idi De Gaulle, the bad guys machine-gun live babies, and FOX News gets prominent placement, but the only people likely to pick this up are those who share Card's politics, rendering subtlety less necessary.
All rights reserved. Card picks up the near-future launched in Empire a few years later, at first in Nigeria, where a year-old monkey-catcher becomes the second victim and first survivor of a new, hypervirulent epidemic. Back in the post—second civil war U. Such is the setup for an even more potent blend of high-tech military action, imperial politics, conspiracy, and practical philosophizing than Card whipped up in Empire. While the dialogue is often as cornball and Hollywoodish as before particularly among the soldiers , the adult principals are sturdy, and in the African boy, Chinma, Card gives us a kid hero to rank with his sf immortals, Ender and Bean.
To do so, he sends a crack team, headed by Captain Bart Coleman, to Africa to contain a viral outbreak. The cast of narrators offers a stirring reading complemented by every enhancement in the book: sound effects, musical score, and audio layering. Rudnicki is a star in the lead role, narrating in a commanding tone that allows slight hints of emotional instability to penetrate the character's cool exterior.
It all creates a theatrical listening experience to which sci-fi fans will surely return. Read more. About the author Follow authors to get new release updates, plus improved recommendations.

Verified Purchase. The first "Empire" book seemed a little contrived even though the underlying conflict is real. This one doesn't do much to advance the plot of that book because it goes off on a tangent about treating plague victims in Africa.
Card heavily emphasizes his religious beliefs here to hammer home the idea that Christians should throw themselves into danger to help the needy, even when it would make a lot more logical sense to help needy people somewhere less suicidally dangerous. He also heavily pushes the theory that similar behavior during the Roman Empire was the reason for Christianity's growth.
Okay, that may or may not be true, but it seems like these messages are at least as important to the author as the actual plotline or characters.
Home » Orson Scott Card. Ender's Game Orson Scott Card Andrew "Ender" Wiggin thinks he is playing computer simulated war games; he is, in fact, engaged in something far more desperate. The result of genetic experimentation, Ender may be the military genius Earth desperately needs in a war against an alien enemy seeking to destroy all human life.
The only way to find out is to throw Ender into ever harsher training, to chip away and find the diamond inside, or destroy him utterly. Ender Wiggin is six years old when it begins. He will grow up fast. But Ender is not the only result of the experiment. The war with the Buggers has been raging for a hundred years, and the quest for the perfect general has been underway almost as long.
Ender's two older siblings, Peter and Valentine, are every bit as unusual as he is, but in very different ways. While Peter was too uncontrollably violent, Valentine very nearly lacks the capability for violence altogether. Neither was found suitable for the military's purpose. But they are driven by their jealousy of Ender, and by their inbred drive for power. Peter seeks to control the political process, to become a ruler. Valentine's abilities turn more toward the subtle control of the beliefs of commoner and elite alike, through powerfully convincing essays.
Hiding their youth and identities behind the anonymity of the computer networks, these two begin working together to shape the destiny of Earth-an Earth that has no future at all if their brother Ender fails. Source: hatrack. Speaker for the Dead Orson Scott Card In the aftermath of his terrible war, Ender Wiggin disappeared, and a powerful voice arose: the Speaker for the Dead, who told of the true story of the Bugger War.
And it is only the Speaker for the Dead, who is also Ender Wiggin the Xenocide, who has the courage to confront the mystery…and the truth. Science Fiction. But try living on the mean streets as a child begging for food and fighting like a dog with ruthless gangs of starving kids who wouldn't hesitate to pound your skull into pulp for a scrap of apple. If Bean has learned anything on the streets, it's how to survive. And not with fists—He is way too small for that—But with brains.
Bean is a genius with a magician's ability to zero in on his enemy and exploit his weakness. What better quality for a future general to lead the Earth in a final climactic battle against a hostile alien race, known as Buggers. At Battleschool Bean meets and befriends another future commander—Ender Wiggins—perhaps his only true rival.
If you still prefer Ender to Bean after this, you're really hardcore. A ship to the stars will give them a chance — a chance for the scientists of Earth to find a treatment, if not for him then for his children. As the long decades on Earth flash by in a moment on their near-light-speed ship, they flee into the future. The three, called Ender, Carlotta and Sergeant, work to learn enough to help in the effort, and then lead it.
But Earth holds no minds more brilliant that those of Bean and his children, and there is no cure. As the generations pass on Earth, there comes a time when no one remembers them, save as a voice on the ansible, a distant whisper from the stars. Children of the Mind Orson Scott Card. In the years between the first two Bugger Wars, the Hegemony is desperate to recruit brilliant military commanders to repel the alien invasion. They may have found their man--or boy--in John Paul Wiggin In "Teacher's Pest"-a novella written especially for this collection--a brilliant but arrogant John Paul Wiggin, now a university student, matches wits with an equally brilliant graduate student.
Banished from Earth and slandered as a mass murderer, twenty-year-old Andrew Wiggin wanders incognito from planet to planet as a fugitive--until a blackmailing tax inspector compromises his identity and threatens to expose Ender the Xeoncide. Also reprinted here is the original award-winning novella, "Ender's Game," which first appeared in Empire Orson Scott Card The American Empire has grown too fast, and the fault lines at home are stressed to the breaking point.
But things were quiet now, had been quiet for a year, and it was plain to him now that they would not bring him back at all, that he was much more useful as a name and a story than he would ever be as an inconvenient flesh-and-blood person. He has become far more than just a boy who won a game: He is the Savior of Earth, a hero, a military genius whose allegiance is sought by every nation of the newly shattered Earth Hegemony.
He is offered the choice of living under the Hegemon's control, a pawn in his brother Peter's political games. Or he can join the colony ships and go out to settle one of the new worlds won in the war. The story of those years on the colony worlds has never been told By the end of it, Val had finished the first volume of her history of the bugger wars and transmitted it by ansible, under Demosthenes' name, back to Earth, and Ender had won something better than the adulation of the passengers.
They knew him now, and he had won their love and their respect. With him went his sister, Valentine, and the core of the artificial intelligence that would become Jane. He served as governor of his first colony world, but now Ender is on the move, looking for a planet where the hive queens might be reestablished. What he finds in the Ganges colony is more than he bargained for--a resentful governor who caused a devastating war on Earth and a brilliant young colonist who is out to destroy him, starting with his reputation and ending, perhaps, with his life.
He first appeared on the streets of Rotterdam, a tiny child with a mind leagues beyond anyone else. He knew he could not survive through strength; he used his tactical genius to gain acceptance into a children's gang, and then to help make that gang a template for success for all the others. He civilized them, and lived to grow older. Then he was discovered by the recruiters for the Battle School. Pathfinder Orson Scott Card A powerful secret. A dangerous path.
This is the story of the First Formic War. Victor beat the alien ship to Earth, but just barely. But it wasn't enough to convince skeptical governments that there was a threat. Saints Orson Scott Card When ten-year-old Dinah Kirkham saw her father leave their Manchester home in the middle of the night, she asked when he would be back.
Xenocide Orson Scott Card The war for survival of the planet Lusitania will be fought in the hearts of a child named Gloriously Bright. On Lusitania, Ender found a world where humans and pequininos and the Hive Queen could all live together; where three very different intelligent species could find common ground at last.
Or so he thought. Lusitania also harbors the descolada, a virus that kills all humans it infects, but which the pequininos require in order to become adults. The Starways Congress so fears the effects of the descolada, should it escape from Lusitania, that they have ordered the destruction of the entire planet, and all who live there.
The Fleet is on its way, and a second xenocide seems inevitable. Folk of the Fringe Orson Scott Card Following the world war that crippled the United States, inhabitants of the state of Deseret, formed from Utah, Colorado, and Idaho and dominated by the Mormon Church, struggle to rebuild civilization. Ruins Orson Scott Card When Rigg and his friends crossed the Wall between the only world they knew and a world they could not imagine, he hoped he was leading them to safety.
Earth and its society has been changed irrevocably in the aftermath of Ender Wiggin's victory over the Formics--the unity enforced upon the warring nations by an alien enemy has shattered. Only a politician would try to tell you otherwise. And I'm not talking about wars—we're America, we win our wars.
There are earthquakes, storms, volcanoes. Plagues can appear out of nowhere and slaughter millions of people. Blights can wipe out our crops. A meteor the size of a bus could hit the earth and send us back to the Stone Age. An extraordinary solar flare could destroy our electronics or heat our atmosphere so much our crops all die and we starve. And whom do we put in charge of helping us prepare to cope with such disasters?
People whose only talent is for getting elected, and whose entire future consists of the run-up to the next election. It's not their fault—anybody who doesn't think and act that way won't win. It's the fundamental problem with democracy. No long-range thinking. So we're just sitting ducks, waiting for the next disaster. If you want to know what destroyed the Roman Empire, it was two plagues, a century apart, that killed about thirty percent of the population each time. That's why there weren't enough soldiers to keep the legions at full strength.
That's why the emperors had to invite in the barbarian tribes to farm the abandoned land and fill the abandoned cities. Only now we're talking about the whole world. Whom do we invite in to settle the empty land when it's the whole world that's been depopulated?
Chinma was the fourth son of the third wife of the aging chief of his small tribe in the Kwara state of Nigeria. There was no shortage of other sons, most of them adult, and nothing much was expected of Chinma. People constantly told him to shut up, even his mother, even when he wasn't saying anything. He got the idea at quite a young age that his very presence was annoying to everyone. The easiest way to avoid getting cuffed or shoved or slapped or yelled at was to disappear.
And the easiest way to disappear was to go up. People didn't look up very much. He could go up into the trees and keep company with the monkeys.
