Why Science Fiction is Important on Earth Day

"Most people only encounter nature on television or in zoos," says author Alan Dean Foster. "If we're not careful, this is all going to be gone."


To commemorate Earth Day, the award-winning science fiction writer speaks about his deep respect for the natural world, which plays a major role in his work. Foster's memoir and travelogue, Predators I Have Known, chronicles his experiences exploring mankind's relationship with the natural world. His science fiction novel Midworld paints a portrait of a community that lives in harmony with that world.

Make every day Earth Day with the author who "always want[s] to see what's over the next hill."
