Maps in a Mirror: The Short Fiction of Orson Scott Card
Maps in a Mirror brings together nearly all of Orson Scott Card's short fiction written between 1977 and 1990. For those readers who have followed this remarkable talent since the beginning, here are all those amazing stories gathered together in one place, with some extra surprises as well.
For the hundreds of thousands who are newly come to Card, here is chance to experience the wonder of a writer so versatile that he can handle everything from traditional narrative poetry to modern experimental fiction with equal ease and grace. The brilliant story-telling of the Alvin Maker books is no accident; the breathless excitement evoked by the Ender books is not a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
In this enormous volume are forty-six stories, plus ten long, intensely personal essays, unique to this volume. In them the author reveals some of his reasons and motivations for writing, with a good deal of autobiography into the bargain.
"One of the genre's most convincing storytellers. An important volume."--Library Journal

My personal bible on how to write short stories. Card excels in the medium, creating a diverse collection of fascinating and thought-provoking stories. Some of them are grotesque enough to be difficult to read, but all of them are well worth the effort. Read full review
