While genuinely famous for his novels, Card's place in recent science-fiction news can be traced in part to his political views, particularly his vocally negative views towards homosexuality. Although for the most part his politics are separate from his fiction, there are exceptions, most notably with the book ''[[Literature/OrsonScottCardsEmpire Empire]]''.

A tie-in to the ShadowComplex video game. The series is a political ''what if?'' story where a secret conspiracy plots to plunge America into a second Civil War based on Red vs. Blue state politics.

He teaches creative writing at Southern Virginia University, where he works with colleages to change the paradigm for English and Writing education methods. He also runs an invitation-only annual "boot camp" for writers, of which some participants have gone on to successful writing careers. He has dedicated large amounts of his time to assisting aspiring writers, and those who have been lucky enough to be taught by him often cite him as a contributor to their success. He is also a [[{{Firefly}} Brown]][[FanCommunityNicknames coat]]. According to his blog, he is also a fan of animated films, as well as ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' after being convinced to watch it by his daughter. More recently, Card wrote an article for a newspaper in which he said ''Anime/CowboyBebop'' was better than "all but a handful" of sci-fi films.

An intergalactic story on a similar scale to the {{Dune}} universe. Originally composed of short stories and then later collected into a (more-or-less) coherent narrative. They center around Jason Worthing, TheEmpire's most famous space pilot -- and its most dangerous one, primarily because he has "[[MindReading the Swipe]]." His TricksterMentor, Abner Doon, sends him out to found a new colony while he quietly causes TheEmpire (and thus the known universe) to collapse back into the Dark Ages. Worthing's colony eventually develops into a telepathic powerhouse who consider themselves guardian angels of the human race, removing memories of suffering and pain with their out-of-control powers. Jason [[WhatTheHellHero makes them cut it out]], which is where the events of the first novel start.

* ''The Lost Gate'' which expands the world found in his short fiction "Stonefather," creating the Mithermage series. It has a magic system that's supposed to explain everything, including mythology and ghosts. Turns out [[spoiler:they're from another planet called Westil, but they've all gotten stranded on Earth since Loki closed all of the Gates that let them get back and forth.]] Has a second volume in a proposed trilogy, ''The Gate Thief.''

* ''ComicBook/UltimateIron Man''. Seriously. It's generally hated by fans, but not for its actual quality (which is decent) but rather because its Tony Stark barely resembles the other writer's Tony Stark.
