Hate emails? Really? Maybe I haven't read enough Card to hate him. I remember my reaction to Ender's Game: well written but predictable and trite. I had no desire to read any of the sequels.I've also heard he slips some of his religion into his fictional world. Is that what all the fuss is about?
Oops. I think I misunderstood your post by 180 degrees.
No worries, Doug. I don't think OSC is worried either way. :)
Always a pleasure. Take -two- asprins and check my blog tomorrow morning ;-)
I was a little surprised to find it was all flash fic as the guidelines don't specify a word count. But, other than that, I thought the writing was good. PBW, I am not familiar with the OSC controversy. Have I missed somethng in my obsessive reading of your past blogs? Gah. I feel like I've missed a crucial bible verse or something.M

He's charging for full access to read the story, as you'll discover if you click on the Register link. I made that same mistake at first; needs to put something a little clearer at the bottom that you're not seeing the whole thing, like NY Times, Salon, and other annoying subscription-based websites.
Jon:Ahh, I see. I thought it was weird how short they all were. Thanks for clearing that up.PBW--You got flak for that passing mention? Ouch. No wonder I didn't remember it, if you blinked you would miss it. M
