Nobody had ever won the Hugo and Nebula awards for best novel two years in a row, until Orson Scott Card received them for Ender’s Game and its sequel, Speaker for the Dead, in 1986 and 1987. Perhaps Card’s most innovative work is his American fantasy series The Tales of Alvin Maker, whose first six volumes, Seventh Son (1987), Red Prophet (1988), Prentice Alvin (1989), Alvin Journeyman (1995), Heartfire (1999) and Crystal City (2003) are set in a magical version of the American frontier. | About Orson Scott Card | CNN interview with Orson S.
