An interview with ADF by Darrell Schweitzer.

The interview can be found on pages 13-19.

Introductory Blurb
A wide-ranging discussion of ADF’s highly successful science fiction career. Conducted by Darrell Schweitzer.

There is a tendency among the More-Literary-Than-Thou types to dismiss Alan Dean Foster as a mere Star Trek and movie novelizer. This is as much of a mistake as dismissing the late James Blish for that reason. Foster has produced a creditable body of work which has nothing to do with his novelizations.

Recently he has published several very good short stories in Isaac Asimov’s SF Magazine. He has written horror fiction, and some of it many years ago, before horror was big bucks and everybody jumped on the bandwagon (or should I say hearse?). He even had a story in The Arkham Collector once.

His novels include Icerigger, Midworld, The Tar-Aiym Krang, Orphan Star, The End of the Matter, and Bloodhype. With Friends Like These is a collection of shorter works, containing some of his best stories.

His forthcoming books include the novelization of the movie The Thing, from Bantam, Nor Crystal Tears and For Love of Mother-Not from Del Rey, and Spellsinger and The Man Who Used the Universe from Warner.
