After opening Alien: River of Pain, I found at the end an advert for Tim Lebbon's upcoming three-part epic "THE RAGE WAR".  Anybody have any further details than the titles?  Below is a listing of the titles from the series.  Technically they're not a part of the Alien: River of Pain story so this isn't a spoiler, but for those of you who don't want to know, I am placing the titles under Spoiler alert protection:

Are the Alien books going in that direction? I haven't really had any incentive to read the newer books.

Not sure, just started reading River, but the ads at the back of the book don't give any indication if this is in fact a continuation.  There is no release date either.  Just, coming soon is all it says...

I would think that they could be considering the fact that Fox rebooted 25 years of previous material and continuity and is now keeping a closer eye on tying everything together with the stand alone movies.. AvP movies not withstanding.

However if these stories are stand alone and don't continue from the ALIEN Trilogy books.. Well.. It'll be the same as it was years ago.

The new books are supposed to follow Decker in a post Sea of Sorrows setting.

Looked up the definition of one of the sub-titles.

Sure, Concrete Jungle sort of.. DID that but I did not really agree with that aspect of the story.

If you ask me, this is a big reboot.. considering the fact that the Big Deletion and everything (along with everyone) from the old canon seems to be well.. replaced.

Interesting scenario you've presented though.

Perfect could you please post a scan or a picture of the advert please - and the AR novelization. I'd like to get this on the front page.  :)

Perfect, thanks. I've put it up on the front page.

I don't think you need to worry about spoilers for the titles.
