It would be akin to a contractor demanding to have his name on a Frank Lloyd Wright house. Foster also penned the novel Splinter of the Mind's Eye , a Star Wars sequel written before the first film was released and was intended to be the basis of a low budget sequel if circumstances demanded such. Published prior to the release of The Empire Strikes Back, Foster's story relied heavily on abandoned concepts that appeared in Lucas's early treatments for the first film.
Foster was stunned when Return of the Jedi revealed the characters of Luke and Leia as brother and sister because, in Splinter , the characters exhibit both romantic and sexual energy. He also wrote ten books based on episodes of Star Trek: The Animated Series , the first six books each consisting of three linked novella-length episode adaptations, and the last four being full-length novelizations of single episodes.
He later wrote the novelizations of the film Star Trek , and its sequel Into Darkness , his first Star Trek novels in over thirty years. In addition to science fiction and fantasy, Foster has also written horror, detective, western, historical and contemporary fiction, as well as occasional excursions into non-fiction.
His novel Shadowkeep was the first ever book adapation of an original computer game. Foster's books have been translated into more than fifty languages. Foster currently lives in Prescott, Arizona, with his wife JoAnn. In addtion to travelling, his other interests include surfing and scuba diving, basketball, music both classical and heavy metal , karate and powerlifting.
The Fosters reside in a house built of brick salvaged from a turn-of-the-century miners' brothel, along with assorted dogs, cats, fish, several hundred houseplants, visiting javelina, porcupines, eagles, red-tailed hawks, skunks, coyotes, bobcats, and the ensorceled chair of the nefarious Dr. John Dee.
