(On the strength of them, I also read his Star Wars tie-in from the same era, Splinter of the Mind's Eye. Liked that very much, too.)
Foster also ghost-wrote the novelization of the original Star Wars movie under George Lucas's name, which was why he was picked to do Splinter. (This is part of why some people falsely believe he ghost-wrote Roddenberry's Star Trek: The Motion Picture novelization -- they get the two confused. Foster was also mis-credited as the ST:TMP novelization's author on a French translation. But the writing style is profoundly unlike Foster's.)
