Other Tales from the Ender Universe

First Meetings is a collection of three novellas, plus the original short version of  "Ender's Game" that was expanded into the bestselling novel. 

"The Polish Boy" begins when the International Fleet is desperate to recruit brilliant military commanders to repel the aliens. In John Paul Wiggin-the future father of Ender -they believe they may have found their man. Or boy. 

In "Teacher's Pest", a brilliant but insufferably arrogant John Paul Wiggin, now an American university student, matches wits with an equally brilliant graduate student named Theresa Brown. This is the first meeting of Ender’s parents.

It is many years since the end of the Bugger Wars in "The Investment Counselor." Ender's reputation as a hero and savior has suffered a horrible reversal. Now twenty-year-old Andrew Wiggin wanders incognito from planet to planet, until a blackmailing tax inspector compromises his identity and threatens to expose Ender the Xenocide. It is then that we have our first meeting with Jane.

   

A WAR OF GIFTS is a short novel written by Orson Scott Card as a Christmas gift for his fans.  It is set on the Battle School, chronologically just after Ender has arrived.  To keep peace in the school among a hundred children from dozens of different cultures and religions, celebration of all religious and national holidays has been banned. But the children don’t agree with that, and the war between staff and students begins when someone leaves a gift from Sinter Klaus in Dink Meeker’s shoe.
