Science fiction writers love to collaborate. Some have collaborated for fun, some as a creative experiment, and there is a strong possibility that some writers did it to sell books or to reduce their workload.The teenaged Futurians wrote stories together in the late 1930s, a practice that came naturally because they lived together. Other kinds of collaborations included transatlantic ones - like the anthology written by Ian Watson in southern England and Michael Bishop in Georgia..or a transmedia collaboration, as when Piers Anthony wrote the novelization for the film Total Recall, which was based on a Phillip K. Dick story.
   Most collaborations are between colleagues who are essentially peers, like Stephen King and Peter Straub's work on The Talisman. So the 1995 collaboration by Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich and SF writer William Forstchen on the novel 1945 is just a continuation of a well-established practice.
