We’re publishing a collection of essays on Ender’s Game in February 2013. (You can find out more about the contents and sign up for news and updates at our book page.)
Alongside those essays, we’re putting together some Q&As with Orson Scott Card to add throughout the book. Why is the Battle Room a cube? Why did the military recruit their soldiers as children? How does the queen survive until Ender finds her?
Here’s your chance to get in on it: Card wants to give you the opportunity to ask him anything you’ve ever wondered about Ender’s Game!
Just comment below with your question; you don’t have to have a tumblr account to play. We’ll publish as many answers as we can in the final book, and give you guys some sneak previews leading up to the book release here.
You have until midnight Eastern time on July 1 to ask. And feel free to ask more than one!
So: What have you always wanted to know about Ender’s Game?
ETA: We’ve lost our answer box! If you can’t type your question in below, you can also leave your question in a comment over here.
