Alan Dean Foster historic content typed letter signed, "Alan Dean Foster", one page, 8.5 x 11, on his Thranx, Inc. letterhead, postmarked envelope dated Dec 12, 1984. In part: "...Someone, I don't know if it was Lucas...had read ICERIGGER and thought I might be the chap to do a novelization of the forthcoming film, plus an original novel set in the same universe. I knew of George Lucas from his work...American Graffiti...I met Lucas. I was struck at once by his easy-going informality...and his enthusiasm for what he was doing...showing me...from the Dykstra computer-controlled camera to the beach-ball sized death star model...I received a copy of the Star Wars screenplay...completing the novelization, I did "Splinter of the Mind's Eye"...and that's my star wars story, a tiny footnote in film history. This is a one-of-a-kind-must-have for any star wars collector.
