Biographical Note

Born in New York City in 1946, Alan Dean Foster was raised in Los Angeles. After receiving a Bachelor's Degree in Political Science and a Master of Fine Arts in Motion Pictures from UCLA in 1968-1969, he spent two years as a copywriter for a small Studio City, California advertising company.

Foster's writing career began when August Derleth bought a long Lovecraftian letter of Foster's in 1968 and published it as a short story in his bi-annual magazine The Arkham Collector. Sales of short fiction to other magazines followed. His first attempt at a novel, The Tar-Aiym Krang, was published by Ballantine Books in 1972. It incorporates several suggestions made by John W. Campbell.

In addition to Derleth's Collector and Campbell's Analog, Foster's sometimes humorous, occasionally poignant, but always entertaining short fiction has appeared in most of the major science fiction magazines as well as in original anthologies and several "Best of the Year" collections. Two representative collections, With Friends Like These and Who Needs Enemies?, have been published by Del Rey books.

Much of Foster's longer work takes place within the framework of a future society known as the Universe of the Commonwealth wherein mankind has forged a close relationship with a race of insect-like creatures called the Thranx. Foster has also worked in the realm of fantasy, notably the six-volume Spellsinger series and the African-based contemporary horror novel Into the Out of. He is also the author of numerous film novelizations like Alien and Aliens, Outland, Clash of the Titans, The Black Hole, Star Wars, and The Thing. Among his other works are non-fiction articles, innumerable film reviews, talking records, radio plays and screenplays, and the treatment for the first Star Trek movie. Besides publication in English, his work has been translated into all major foreign languages and many minor ones, from Russian to Flemish to Hebrew.

Through restricted (for now) to the exploration of one world, Foster's love of the far-away and exotic has led him to travel extensively, including an early sojourn into French Polynesia, where he lived for a summer with a family of local gendarme, and a month in the back country of Tanzania. Besides traveling, he enjoys both classical and rock music, his favorites running the gamut from ZZ Top to Janacek. Other pastimes include basketball, hiking, body surfing, collecting animation on video, and weight lifting. He has taught screen writing, literature, and film history at UCLA and Los Angeles City College as well as having lectured at various schools around the country and in Europe. He is a member of the Science-Fiction Writers of America, West.

Foster and his wife JoAnn Oxley of Moran, Texas reside in Prescott in a house built of brick salvaged from a turn-of-the-century brothel.

The bulk of this collection is housed in Series I: Novels and Novelizations (Boxes 1-86). This series contains outlines, notes, drafts, typescripts, setting copies, galley proofs, and other materials documenting Foster's numerous original novels and movie novelizations, including Alien, Maori, the Journeys of the Catechist series, the Spellsinger series, the Trilogy of the Damned, and Star Trek Logs 1-10.
