EP #5 - Storytelling for a more conscious & compassionate world (Alan Dean Foster)
Alan Dean Foster is a true Renaissance man. He is an American writer of science fiction and fantasy, best known for his many novelizations of film scripts including Star Trek, Alien, Terminator, Transformers and Star Wars ... which he ghost wrote for George Lucas.
He has also written several book series and more than twenty stand-alone novels, many of which have strong environmental and ecological elements to them, and his work has been translated into more than fifty languages.
Alan is also an intrepid traveller, with a particular love of discovering traditional cultures and wild places.
In this discussion, Alan discusses many and varied topics including the intention and motivation for his writing, the power of science fiction to tell stories with an environmental focus, the importance of being curious and understanding how things work, good vs evil, where his ideas come from, how story and character are key to his storytelling, how his experiences of traveling have shaped his life views and his writing, and how to make your voice heard.
