With a brand new Alien film on the horizon (Alien: Covenant, arriving May 19; see the trailer here), what better time for a Alien anthology, featuring Colonial Marines in bloody conflict with the deadly Aliens in deep space, on alien worlds, and in derelict space settlements and lethal nests?
Aliens: Bug Hunt featuring original short stories set in the Aliens universe by Dan Abnett, Tim Lebbon, David Farland, James A. Moore, Brian Keene, Christopher Golden, Matt Forbeck, Yvonne Navarro, and many others. I read Navarro’s 1996 Aliens novel Music of the Spears; Dan Abnett, Christopher Golden, Tim Lebbon, James A. Moore have previously written in the Aliens universe as well. Aliens: Bug Hunt arrives in hardcover and trade paperback from Titan in two weeks.
When the Colonial Marines set out after their deadliest prey, the Xenomorphs, it’s what Corporal Hicks calls a bug hunt — kill or be killed. Here are fifteen all-new stories of such “close encounters,” written by many of today’s most extraordinary authors.
Set during the events of all four Alien films, sending the Marines to alien worlds, to derelict space settlements, and into the nests of the universe’s most dangerous monsters, these adventures are guaranteed to send the blood racing—
One way or another.
Aliens: Bug Hunt will be published by Titan Books on April 18, 2017. It is 368 pages, priced at $22.95 in hardcover, $16.95 in trade paperback, and $7.99 for the digital edition.
