Someone who retells the life of a deceased person. A Speaker for the Dead tells the story in all truth, holding back neither good nor bad, so that the deceased may be better understood.

The title derived from the book ender's game, where Ender tells the story of the Formics after killing off all but one of them in a short story book titled, "The Hive Queen," and later the story of his brother in the another short story book titled, "The Hegemon." Both story's were signed with the pen name 'Speaker for the Dead,' so no one was aware of the original author.
Thanks to the Speaker for the Dead, I realized my dead father was not such a bad man after all, just struggling to make ends meet.

Speaker for the Dead (1986) is a science fiction novel by Orson Scott Card and an indirect sequel to the novel Ender's Game. This book takes place around the year 5270, some 3,000 years after the events in Ender's Game. However, due to relativistic space travel Ender himself (who now goes by his real name Andrew Wiggin or by his title "Speaker for the Dead") is only about 35 years old.

This is the first book to talk about Starways Congress, a high standpoint Legislation for the human colonies. It is the first to fully mention the Hundred Worlds, 100 planets which humans colonized which are tightly intertwined by the xenocided Buggers' old Ansible technology. It also showed Ender's sister's terms for life forms, such as Varelse.

Like Ender's Game, the book won the Nebula Award in 1986,1 and the Hugo Award in 1987,2 making Card the first author in history to win both these awards in two consecutive years. Speaker for the Dead was published in a slightly revised edition in 1991. It was followed by Xenocide and Children of the Mind.
