Orson Scott Card is one of the biggest names in science fiction and fantasy. He won both the Hugo and Nebula science fiction awards for best novel for two consecutive years--something no other writer has ever done. In addition, he was the first writer to ever win a Nebula and a Hugo for both a book and its sequel, Ender's Game and Speaker for the Dead. His current best-seller is Shadow of Hegemon. He lives in North Carolina.
