    I have probably 10000 SF books. I stopped reading SF when it got taken over by that crappy heroic fantasy bilge.

    I read Ender's Game. Juvenile bilge. Like Spider Robinson, Card is a passable stylist who cannot plot for shit.

    Good SF? Jack Vance, JG Ballard, Frank Herbert.

    Card sucks. I don't care about his religion.

      Zelazny was and will remain my favorite.

      John Roberts? Melville Fuller?? WTF is the difference???.

      the ends justify the means, and that we should never judge actions but only judge people.

      Unknowable intent should be our prime concern.  Even Genocide should be forgiven if we believe the people who committed it really truly believed they had to do so in order to survive.

      Mr. Universe is a known degenerate Robotophile, and his sources include former Browncoat Traitors. What is their agenda in leaking top secret information about the Reavers and endangering us all?
