The Fold of the Fringe is a post-apocalyptic group of stories following a group of Mormon’s struggle to survive in a newly ravaged America. Although the stories were written initially to stand alone, they each share at least one character, which leads to a cohesive narrative.
Best known for the Ender’s Game series, Card became a significant figure in the modern sci-fi genre. As a direct descendant of Brigham Young, Card’s religious influence is at its most apparent in the Homecoming series, insomuch that the series itself was patterned after the Book of Mormon. Although Card himself became a hugely controversial individual due to some of his beliefs, his work stands alone in its significance, breadth, and influence.
