The Original Ender's Game Story - August 1977 Analog W Signed Dragon Army Bplate For Sale
This is where it all began - the August 1977 edition of Analog Magazine that contained the ORIGINAL Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card! Mr. Card's original vision for Ender Wiggin was in the form of a short story/novella. Read the FIRST Ender's Game and see how the idea began for the Hugo and Nebula Awards winning novel and the series and movie to follow. Mr. Card signed an official Dragon Army bookplate with the Dragon Army insignia printed at the top of the bookplate. It is laid in the book for you to decide where to place it. It is NOT attached to the magazine. The item will be sent in a see-through mylar envelope protecting it from moisture. Rigid material surrounding the item will prevent folding or bending. The 1977 original vision of Orson Scott Card's Hugo Award AND Nebula Award-winning novel 'Ender's Game,' preceded the novel version's release in 1985. The short story seems to focus on just a couple of chapters that are found in the novel and has some sections expanded while others are left out. Some of the character names are spelled differently. Some illustrations are found in the short story while there are none in the novel. The ending is a little different. This is a must have for fans of Ender's Game and the Andrew "Ender" Wiggin's saga. The magazine is in beautiful condition. Pages are yellowed as would be expected but highly readable and with no tears smudges or other discoloration. A great collector's copy.
