Transcript GUEST OF HONOR ALAN DEAN FOSTER Born in New York City in 1946, Foster was raised in Los Angeles. After receiving a bachelor's degree in Political Science and a Master of the Fine Arts in Motion Pictures from UCLA in 1968-69, he worked for two years as a public relations copywriter in a small Studio City, Calif., firm. His writing career began when August Derleth bought a Jong letter of Foster's in 1968 and published it as a short story in his biannual ARKHAM MAGAZINE. Sales of short fiction to other magazines followed. His first try at a novel, THETAR-AIYMKRANG, was published by Ballantine in 1972. Foster's sometimes humorous, occasionally poignant, but always entertaining short stories have appeared in such magazines as ANALOG, IF, GALAXY, FANTASY & SCIENCE FICTION, GALILEO, ISAAC ASIMOV'S SCIENCE FICTION, . ALFRED HITCHCOCK'S MYSTERY MAGAZINE, ADAM, ART & STORY, as well as in original anthologies and several "Best of Year" collections. A collection, "With Friends Like These/ was published by Del Rey in 1977. Much of Foster's longer work takes place within the framework of a future society known as the Universe of the Com* monwealth, where mankind has foiged a semi-symbiotic relationship with a race of insects, the Thranx. In addition to publication in the United States and the rest of the English- speaking world, these novels of high adventure have been translated into Dutch, German, Italian, Spanish and Flemish. Foster is also the author of several movie novelizations such as DARK STAR and LUANA, besides the ten volume STAR TREK LOG series. The latter have sold over one and one/half million copies in the U.S. alone. Among his other works are talking records, radio and screen plays, the sequel novel to the film STAR WARS ("Splinter of the Mind's Eye") and the story for STAR TREK TWO-THE MOVIE. Though restricted (for now) to one world, Foster's love for the'far-away and exotic has led him to travel extensively
