Following in the footsteps of this discussion on Ender, I went ahead and read Ender's Shadow. I guess if you really loved the first one, the second might throw you off. I find perfect genius characters grating though. Ender managed to pass for human in Game, but this one about Bean suffers from Bean's alienated nature and from the frequent and overly obvious tie-ins to Game - it would have been better to skip most of that.
I also read over Philip K. Dick's Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?, the basis for Bladerunner. I can see why people are fans. But enough of that all for now. I'm about to embark on a McCullough's 1000+ page volume on Harry Truman. Wouldn't you know it, the author was in Boston just last week, and I missed it...
