Everything seems to be going well for the Fletchers, a Mormon family that has recently moved to a small North Carolina town, but trouble begins when seven-year-old Stevie begins to withdraw into his own world *Author: Card, Orson Scott *Publication Date: 1993/12/01 *Number of Pages: 528 *Binding Type: Paperback *Language: English *Depth: 1.00 *Width: 4.25 *Height: 6.50
From the Publisher:
Award-winning author Card proves to be a master at mainstream fiction with this chilling family drama that touches the heart as it frightens the soul. When the Fletchers move to North Carolina, their son withdraws from reality into a world of computer games and fictitious playmates--whose names match those of missing young boys.
Annotation:
When the Fletchers move to town, on the surface everything seems perfect. But as they try to fit in, they find that some very odd things are going on, and when their formerly outgoing son becomes more and more withdrawn, they begin to suspect that things are not as they seem.
Author Bio
Orson Scott Card
Orson Scott Card was born and raised in a Mormon family and has continually pointed out that Mormonism is the primary force in his life. He attended Brigham Young University and the University of Utah, and spent time in Brazil as a Mormon missionary. His earliest writings were radio and stage plays (Card has estimated the number at over 100) telling the history of Mormonism. His first published fiction was the science fiction short story called "Ender's Game" in 1977, which was nominated for a Hugo Award and a Reader's Award from Locus magazine. The Locus Award is based on votes compiled from the magazine's readers and is important in demonstrating just how popular Card is with readers. Since that story, Card has been nominated for or won the award more than 30 times, which is extraordinary considering the relatively short time that he has been writing fiction. In 1985, Card published an expanded version of "Ender's Game" as a novel, and won both the Hugo and Nebula awards. It was followed by a sequel in 1986, SPEAKER FOR THE DEAD, which also won the Hugo and Nebula, marking the first time in the history of the awards that one author won both in successive years. Card's next series of books, the Alvin Maker series, started in 1987 with SEVENTH SON. This series is set in an alternate past of America, and is closely modeled on the reported life of Joseph Smith, the founder of Mormon Church. The Homecoming series--THE MEMORY OF EARTH, THE CALL OF EARTH, THE SHIPS OF EARTH, EARTHBORN, and EARTHFALL--repeats this theme, but in a space opera setting. Card has also written nonfiction--his first book, LISTEN, MOM AND DAD..., was actually about child-rearing. He has also tried his hand at horror, mainstream, and children's fiction, and he is also a respected editor and reviewer.
