Orson Scott Card offers a Christmas gift to his millions of fans with A War of Gifts, a short novel set during Ender's first years at the Battle School where it is forbidden to celebrate religious holidays. The children come from many nations, many religions; while they are being trained for war, religious conflict between them is not on the curriculum. But Dink Meeker, one of the older students, doesn't see it that way. He thinks that giving gifts isn't exactly a religious observation, and on Sinterklaas Day he tucks a present into another student's shoe.

This small act of rebellion sets off a battle royal between the students and the staff, but some surprising alliances form when Ender comes up against a new student, Zeck Morgan. The War over Santa Claus will force everyone to make a choice.

    " More on the short story side of things. But all the little stories came together as one. The message hit close to home. "

    " Anything about Ender is dynamite in my book, and this tiny little book is sweet and touching, filled with arrogant genius children, silly poems, and it's about Christmas. Which makes for a pretty enjoyable read, in my opinion. "

    " I've been enjoying the latest stories coming out of the "Enderverse" via Card's InterGalactic Medicine Show, but was surprised to see this one in hard cover at my library - so I had to pisk it up. A quick read, but it threw me immediately back into my Ender trance, reminding me of how much I loved these characters and story. "

    " This book should never have been made. It is the worst propagandist piece of ----- I have ever read. Card should be ashamed. He greatly ruined the Ender universe with this book. ALL ENDER AND CARD FANS STAY AWAY!!! Card uses this book to spout his religion.... his writing style here is unrecognizable and the storyline is freaking pathetic. "
