First Meetings by Orson Scott Card is a collection of short stories correlating to the Ender series. I believe all the stories are new except for "Ender's Game" which is a reprint of the original 1977 publication. If "Ender's Game" is indeed an exact reproduction, then I'm impressed with how well the shorter story stands on its own and also at how seamlessly Card expanded it into the now-classic novel.

Ender meeting Jane for the first time in "Investment Counselor" reminded me of Spike Jonze's "Her" (2013) although the former came first. There are lots of similarities between the two despite Card's vision of the relationship being decidedly un-sexual in nature.

Orson Scott Card’s ‘First Meeting in the Enderverse,’ is an Ender Book which contains four Novellas - The Polish Boy (2002), The Teacher’s Pet (2003), Ender’s Game (1985) and Investment Counselor (1999). The Novella ‘Ender Game’ was the original short story that started this wonderful series of books. These four stories helped to clarify some of the background behind the Ender’s Series of books.’ Doctor-at-Bass! Taylor A.

A book of short stories. The second story "Teacher's Pest" is my favorite in this book. I liked seeing how Ender's parents first met.
