EnderCast Episode #19 – Welcome to Fairyland


June 25th, 2013


Wow, we’re at Episode 19, which means next week we’re going to be on Episode 20! Crazy town!

For this week’s (or rather, last week’s) episode, we had on two special guests. One was author and Ender’s World contributor Alethea Kontis. The other was Zac, who took part in Pop Quiz, Fart Eater. Topics we discussed with Alethea included:

  • Whether the mind game is important to the movie
  • The impact of parental figures on characters such as Peter
  • How her essay Mirror Mirror came about
  • Her experience at Orson Scott Card’s Literary Boot Camp

You can read an excerpt of Alethea’s essay Mirror Mirror at Smart Pop Books and visit her website at AletheaKontis.com.

Be sure to play along with the Pop Quiz and tell us how you did compared to Zac!

    Loved this as usual. Alethea has got to be the most cheerful person in existence. It also looks like you gotta update your Pop Quiz Standings! Maybe, while you are at it, you could add a special category for the 2.5 people that reads “commanders of the farteaters”. As for you taking the quiz: if you don’t wanna do it, I’m happy to provide questions/quiz you! Bwahahahahahaaaa!

    Oh, by the way, the video mashup that Kelly mentions is not available outside the US (or at least it is not available in Germany). Could you maybe download it and upload it elsewhere so that everyone can watch it?

      Oh! Thanks for reminding me. My friend Rames said he was having trouble watching it and he’s in Germany as well. I’ll try to figure something out! 🙂
