In July 1977, "Ender's Game" appeared as a novelette in Analog magazine. The science fiction community immediately embraced it, nominating it for a Hugo award, and when Orson Scott Card turned it into a novel in 1985, it won both the Hugo and Nebula Award.
Now, twenty-five years later, First Meetings celebrates "Ender's Game" by reprinting that original story along with two others, one of which has never before been published anywhere.
In "The Polish Boy," Ender's father, as a child, has a chance to end the persecution that his parents have suffered because they defied the law and had more than two children.
"Investment Counselor" takes place after "Ender's Game," when Ender first meets Jane, the extremely useful--though temperamental--personal digital assistant who will transform his life.
The Subterranean Press edition of First Meetings is the only edition, with a full-color wraparound dust jacket, as well as a two-color illustration for each story.
