I asked about Hish and Yautja but the answer wasn't conclusive.
I guess we'll wait and see...
I suspect we'll see some sort of retcon of them with Shirley being involved which was why I asked. Not that I want it.
I'm not sure if the authors have talked with each other but if I do know one thing about anthology stories-- they're generally unrelated to one another. Whether or not this will be the case for Predator, well.. again, remains to be seen but... You're right about one thing, I'm not too thrilled about Shirley being brought back for this, but I would like to think that he's aware of the Yautja concept now since he was made aware of it back in 2006.. but I just don't trust the guy with the Predator whatsoever but... I'm hoping that the Hish idea... is left behind.
If there is some sort of retcon, well.. I'm not going to get my hopes high as far as Predator is concerned. The least I can hope for is that the traditional Predators we know and love are the Yautja, where the Super Predators could be retconned as the Hish. But the realist in me says... that's gonna be too much to ask for. I've tried giving some of the new stuff a chance and learned if it's not one thing, it's another.
