Today, while searching my library's online catalog for my favorite authors, something I do every couple weeks (if not more often) just to see if the library has added any new titles of theirs, I made a most joyous discovery.  Orson Scott Card has finally, finally finished a new novel to add to the Ender series!  

This is the teaser gives for the new book, Ender in Exile:
Orson Scott Card returns to his best-selling series with a new Ender novel.

At the close of Ender's Game, Andrew Wiggin – called Ender by everyone – is told that he can no longer live on Earth, and he realizes that this is the truth. He has become far more than just a boy who won a game: he is the Savior of Earth, a hero, a military genius whose allegiance is sought by every nation of the newly shattered Earth Hegemony. He is offered the choice of living in isolation on Eros, at one of the Hegemony’s training facilities, but instead the twelve-year-old chooses to leave his home world and begin the long relativistic journey out to the colonies. With him went his sister Valentine, and the core of the artificial intelligence that would become Jane.

The story of those years has never been told… until now.

Ender in Exile will be published by Tor on November 11 of this year.  HUZZAH!  HUZZAH!  HUZZAH!  I am just about bursting with happiness.  And desperately praying that the 384 pages of Ender in Exile will pick up and resolve several rather important plot threads that were left dangling at the end of Shadow of the Giant.
