    Orson Scott Card rewrites Hamlet

    OSC rewrites Hamlet and causes outcry...

    Let's leave aside the sheer arrogance that this writer is showing by actually rewriting Shakespeare.
    Let's also not look at the terrible examples of prose.

    Let's just take a look at what he's actually done.

    Oh Card, you're such a card.

    Are you?

    Maybe not.

    Even for a Mormon he's a nut. I had a friend who was a recovering Mormon, he said OSC was pretty well known for going on epic rants against the evil and pernicious influence pick-up basketball games were having on the Mormon way of life. I mean, basketball? Ok.

    It makes me really irritated that Ender's Game and Ender's Shadow were such amazing books.

    Even a blind squirrel finds a nut now and again I suppose.

    Jeez, I hope he does not have a go at re-doing Richard III. That "kingdom for a horse" bit worries me...

    Hopefully he'll write a script for the next Aliens movie

    He should try his hand at Moby Dick next. Or maybe Paradise Lost.

    Oooh, I know! The Bible! Definitely in need of his great talents...
