I told the whole story in my foreword to Lloyd Biggle, J. s, story Tunesmith in a Tor double published not long ago. I’m excerpting a part of that essay to tell you where this story came from: In 1959 I turned eight. Best Science Fiction Stories of 1955. So I wrote science fiction, and eventually that came to be the mainsail of my writing career.

Good short story

Dated writing but interesting. Both Card's own story and the Biggle one (included for a reason Card describes in the foreword) seem to foreshadow a few of the themes Card uses in his later work.

Well written (conciese) and read Sci Fi story about a boy coming of age w/ special powers. The only mild criticism is that the antagonists could have been more fully developed.

Card has been my favorite author for many years; I've read this story many times and enjoy listening even better. I re-read Card because I like his characters, who are well portrayed by these narrators.

"Eye For Eye." The other reviewer gives a decent synopsis of "Eye For Eye," which is a Stephen King-esque story of hillbillies, bible-thumpers and telekinetic revenge -- a lot like King's "Firestarter." I suppose what makes this story superior to a King novella is that Card believes that human beings are mostly good, while King does not. Rating: Excellent.

"The Tunesmith." This is the story of a musician who discovers that he can make music far better and more passionately than the current regime allows; he throws convention out the window, makes great music, is punished for it and then eventually recognized for the genius he is. As Card himself admits, this story is thematically identical to his short story "Unaccompanied Sonata," and I encourage everyone to read that short story in Card's collection of short stories entitled "Maps In A Mirror: Volume 2." Rating: Outstanding.

I believe I first read this book when I was in the 9th grade. I had checked the book out from the high school library. I eventually read the book atleast 3 times before I returned it. Since then I have not seen the book nor been able to find it. I was not one for reading books at that age, but this book intrigued me. I was truely able to visiualize the events which Orson displayed. The story starts our with a teenage boy who knows he is different. I realizes he can channel energy. This ability is amplified by hightened moments of stress. In moments of anger, if someone were to confront him, was delt a dose of cancer or some other human disfunction. One person angered him so that they died instantly from his surge of energy mangling the person from the inside. With almost an X-men type spin off, he runs from home fearing he would hurt others. Later he is confronted by a very beautiful women in her mid-twenties. He finds that she has the same abilities which he has, but no where near as strong. She teaches him of what he is and how he has recieved this ability. Even if a million people gathered together and channeled there energies, they would mearely give an individual a small tumor of little effect.She informs him that there are more like them. Others with her level of strength that would like to get their hands on him to marry him into their family. By doing so, these families would then be able to breed him for stronger more power inviduals with the ability to channel their energies. Forming a superhuman group. The young female's mission is to get him to safety, away from these other families. This is an amazing book with amazing detail and imagination. As I read I felt like I was watching a movie. It was amazing. I would recommend this book to any science fiction lover.
