Book Details

Keeper of Dreams is a huge collection of the short fiction of New York Times bestselling author Orson Scott Card, author of the Hugo and Nebula Award-winning Ender's Game. Divided into three volumes for the audiobook edition, Keeper of Dreams brings together 22 short stories published between 1990 and 2008—nearly every short story Card has written since the publication of Maps in A Mirror.

The first volume of the audiobook presents the five science fiction stories from the collection, Card's new introductions for each, and commentary on his life and work.

The Elephants of Poznan
Geriatric Ward
Heal Thyself

Like the earlier Maps in A Mirror, this collection is a definitive retrospective of the short fiction career of the writer that The Houston Post called "the best writer science fiction has to offer."
