Orson Scott Card

Orson Scott Card est né en 1951. D'aucuns considèrent Le cycle d'Ender comme le chef-d'oeuvre de cet auteur contemporain majeur. De confession mormone, il n'a de cesse de défendre une science-fiction initiatique et humaniste. Roman parallèle à La stratégie Ender, La stratégie de l'ombre propose un point de vue différent sur les événements qui s'y déroulent et peut se lire indépendamment.
