VJ Books Honors New York Times Bestselling Author Orson Scott Card as January 2011 Author of the Month

Press Release – Tualatin, Oregon – January 3, 2011

VJ Books announced today Orson Scott Card to be the featured author of the month for January 2011.

Nobody had ever won the Hugo and Nebula awards for a novel and its sequel, two years in a row, until Orson Scott Card received them for Ender’s Game and Speaker for the Dead, in 1986 and 1987. But Orson Scott Card’s experience is not limited to one genre or form of storytelling.  His contemporary novels Lost Boys, Treasure Box, and Homebody brought a powerful emphasis on character and moral dilemmas to the old-fashioned ghost story. And his contemporary novel, Enchantment, is a romantic fantasy that has Sleeping Beauty being awakened by an American graduate student in Ukraine in 1991.

Orson Scott Card’s awards are numerous.  He has been nominated for, or won, the Hugo Award for Outstanding Science Fiction over a dozen times, and the Nebula at least ten times.
