really liked it

First Meetings is a collection of short stories. The first two stories do predate the series but with out context. That context is only revealed during Ender's game.

The Polish Boy - A story about Peter, Valentine and Ender's Father when his Father was 5 years old.

Teacher's Pest - A story about the meeting of Peter, Valentine and Ender's parents.

Ender's Game - The original short story that the Ender's Game novel was based on.

Investment Counselor - The first time Ender meets Jane.

These stories backfill the series nicely. If I were to try and fit these stories into the series I would read the complete series in the following order.
