** ''[[Literature/EndersGame Children of the Mind]]'' came out in 1996, and despite fans wanting to know what happens next, Card wrote a ton of prequels.
** It took seven years to make the fifth book of the ''Shadow'' prequel series.
** He co-wrote ''Literature/{{Lovelock}}'' with Kathryn H. Kidd in 1994. It's supposed to be part one of ''The Mayflower Trilogy'', and the second book still isn't out.

* MagnumOpusDissonance: [[http://www.hatrack.com/osc/reviews/everything/2013-04-04.shtml Card feels his best work is]] his short story ''[[http://janlowman.escuelacampoalegre.wikispaces.net/file/view/Card,+Unaccompanied+Sonata.pdf Unaccompanied Sonata]]''. Similarly it's noted on ''Literature/EndersGame'' page that it was meant to be a lead-up for ''Literature/SpeakerForTheDead'', though he's come to appreciate the first book just as much. However, he doesn't mind that it has become so much more popular than his later work.

-->'''Card''': Readers choose which books and stories they'll care about most and remember best, and if I am remembered only for a novel I wrote in 1984, and not for the better books I wrote after that, I'm not going to complain: Writers are lucky if readers care about and remember any of their works, and a writer is a fool if he criticizes his readers for liking the wrong book.

Added DiffLines:

* DeliberateFlawRetcon: In his introduction to ''Ender's Shadow'', Card says that any differences between that book and ''EndersGame'' are "deliberate, to show the differences in the experiences of the two children." And then lampshades it by saying, "As my programmer friends would say, 'There are no bugs, only features.'"

He believes that homosexuality should be illegal, stating "laws against homosexual behavior should remain on the books, not to be indiscriminately enforced against anyone who happens to be caught violating them, but to be used when necessary to send a clear message that those who flagrantly violate society's regulation of sexual behavior cannot be permitted to remain as acceptable, equal citizens within that society. The goal of the polity is not to put homosexuals in jail. The goal is to discourage people from engaging in homosexual practices in the first place, and, when they nevertheless proceed in their homosexual behavior, to encourage them to do so discreetly, so as not to shake the confidence of the community in the polity's ability to provide rules for safe, stable, dependable marriage and family relationships."[[http://www.nauvoo.com/library/card-hypocrites.html]] He also advocated civil disobedience against the United States government in the event of it recognizing homosexual marriage.
