Too long to be a short story, too short to be a novel - welcome to the surprisingly potent world of the novelette. The award-winning magazine Orson Scott Card's Intergalactic Medicine Show has been an online haven for this powerful form of storytelling since 2005. Now its editors have selected their all-time favorite science fiction novelettes from the magazine's eight-year history and reprinted them together in one big book of listening pleasure. Anything that is remotely possible - futures near and far, artificial intelligence and alien encounters, alternate timelines and alternate theories about creating universes, planet-eating black holes and lunar racetracks - is all here under the big tent of Orson Scott Card's Intergalactic Medicine Show.
This anthology features stories by such award-winning authors as Orson Scott Card, Wayne Wightman, Aliette de Bodard, Eric James Stone, Mary Robinette Kowal, Stephen Kotowych, Jackie Gamber, Greg Siewert, Jamie Todd Rubin, Brad R. Torgersen, and Marina J. Lostetter, plus an all-new essay by Orson Scott Card about writing the character of Ender.

Only one Ender's universe history: Mazer in Prison (which is great).
Although there are many good short stories, I was a bit disappointed that there was not more from Ender's universe.
Would be good to have the titles of all stories on the description of this audiobook.
"Good, not Great"
The stories were good and for the price worth the money. But I expected more.
Loved some, liked some and felt one was a story that could have happened anywhere, anytime with speculative elements tossed in as after thought. Loved OSC Ender extras. Such broad range, I'd recommend it. Something for everyone.
