In 1977, Orson Scott Card wrote a science-fiction story, Ender’s Game, about children fighting mock battles in space while learning to save Earth from the alien invaders who killed millions at their first contact, half a century before. In 1985, Card turned that story into a novel, one that he considered unfilmable because much of the action was people in space and another chunk of it took place inside the mind of Ender Wiggin, on the fast track to becoming a military leader before he reached puberty. With the technology of today that exceeds the science fiction of 1977, Ender’s Game has become a feast for the eye that challenges the brain.
