Orson Scott Card, Internationally Bestselling Author, To Publish New Young Adult Series

Orson Scott Card, author of the enduring bestseller ENDER'S GAME and winner of the 2008 YALSA Margaret A. Edwards Award for Lifetime Contribution to Young Adult Literature, will publish an exciting new series for younger readers with Simon Pulse, an imprint of Simon & Schuster Children's Publishing. Card has published numerous works in many genres, but is best known for his science fiction and fantasy work. Anica Rissi from Simon Pulse acquired World English rights to the first three books in this as-yet-untitled Young Adult series through Barbara Bova at The Barbara Bova Literary Agency. The series-launching debut hardcover title is set to be published in Spring 2011.
