Rick Endres has been writing fan fiction and illustrating and editing fanzines since the late 1970s. After publishing Where No Man Has Gone Before, Rick began working with Orion Press in 1979 and has continued editing and publishing to this date.
In 1988 he won the FanQ Award for Best Writer & Story for his novel, The Daystrom Project. Prior to that he had been nominated for two TrekStar Awards (one for art, one for writing) in 1982, and two (one for art, one for writing) in 1983.
In a 2006 interview with the online magazine Trek Core, Rick made the following offer to its readers:
- "Give fan fiction a chance, folks. Come visit our Orion Press website and check out any three stories. If you don't find any of them worth reading, well, accept my apologies. But you might open a new door, a new avenue of entertainment to you, one that you might find yourself wanting to be a part of. And believe me, we would welcome you."
