Hello- my name is Alan Dean Foster. I've been trying to see as much of this planet as possible, and using my imagination to examine worlds beyond it. Worlds both possible (science-fiction) and impossible (fantasy). Some of you have been kind enough to travel along with me in the books and stories I've set down about those travels. Some have even expressed an interest in knowing a little more about them, and about me. Hence this little website, that I hope you will enjoy.
Every month, on the Update page, I will try to provide some background on my stories, their origin, on how certain characters and plots and places were arrived at -  general background information on my writing that appears nowhere else. If you have a specific question, please don't hesitate to ask. I'll try to answer as many as I can. There will also be periodic updates to the bibliographic material, and information on forthcoming works.
Thank you for your interest.
