Earth Afire (First Formic War) by Orson Scott Card and Aaron Johnston (Macmillan Audio 04 June 2013 / $44.99) - Product Description: One hundred years before Ender's Game, the aliens arrived on Earth with fire and death. Earth Afire by Orson Scott Card and Aaron Johnston is the story of the First Formic War.

Victor Delgado beat the alien ship to Earth, but just barely. Not soon enough to convince skeptical governments that there was a threat. They didn't believe that until space stations and ships and colonies went up in sudden flame.

And when that happened, only Mazer Rackham and the Mobile Operations Police could move fast enough to meet the threat.
Unabridged. 13 CDs. Run time of 15 hours. (see review)

Man of Steel by Zack Snyder (dir)/David Goyer (wr)/Christopher Nolan (prod) (Warner Bros 10 June 2013 / ) - A world dies, a baby lives. As the planet Krypton implodes, wracked by civil war and natural disaster both, Jor-El (Russell Crowe) sends his infant son Kal to a world where his powers will make him godlike. But as Clark Kent (Henry Cavill) grows up, he is plagued by the questions "who am I?" and "why am I here?" Even Superman has existential crises, it seems.
