The following is a personality profile of Orson Scott Card based on his work.
Orson Scott Card is boisterous, social and sentimental.
He is intermittent, he has a hard time sticking with difficult tasks for a long period of time. He is unconcerned with art as well: he is less concerned with artistic or creative activities than most people who participated in our surveys. But, Orson Scott Card is also content: he is content with his level of accomplishment and does not feel the need to set ambitious goals.
More than most people, his choices are driven by a desire for discovery.
Considers helping others to guide a large part of what he does: he thinks it is important to take care of the people around him. He is also relatively unconcerned with tradition: he cares more about making his own path than following what others have done.
THE GATE THIEF is the second book in Card's new Mithermages series, following the initial book THE LOST GATE. It's an entertaining take on the parallel universe genre.
