Bestsellers: Card's "Shadow of the Hegemon" Hits Bestsellers in Paper

NEW YORK, NEW YORK -- The paperback edition of Orson Scott Card's book "The Shadow of the Hegemon" joined the national bestseller lists this past week, hitting the New York Times' list and USA Today's top 150 in its first week out in paperback. The book brings the number of Mormon-related books on the bestseller lists back to four.

"Shadow of the Hegemon" is the most recent book in Card's "Ender's Game" series, and the second to tell the series from the position of Ender's Shadow, Bean. This series is Card's most higly acclaimed work, with two of its titles winning the major Science Fiction awards, and the first book, "Ender's Game" even reaching the reading lists for some high schools in the U.S. Card is also known among LDS Church members for his recent series of books about the women of Genesis.

Mormon News is experiencing logistical problems with the LDS bestseller lists, but we expect that they will return shortly also.

The current titles on US National bestseller lists are:
