Alien – Out of the Shadows Preview

The good folks over at Titan Books have kindly provided AvPGalaxy with a preview of Tim Lebbon’s Alien – Out of the Shadows, due out Monday the 20th:

“Several warning sirens blasted their individual songs—proximity alert; damage indicator; hull breach. People shouted in panic, confusion, and fear. And behind it all was a deep, rumbling roar from the ship itself. The Marion was in pain, and its vast bulk was grinding itself apart.

Lucy and Cornell, Hoop thought from his position on the floor. But whether they were alive or dead didn’t change anything right now. He was senior officer on the bridge. As scared and shocked as all of them, but he had to take charge.”

Be sure to check out the entire preview. For those interested in purchasing in the book you can find Alien – Out of the Shadow on Amazon (or your respective one). We will also be giving away copies of the novel very soon and keep an eye out for our review!

    Hoop is essentially Hicks in this book. They use plasma cutters as weapons against the aliens and there is a scene lifted straight from Aliens where he shows her how to use it. She even says "Show me. I can handle myself."

    I have the book. Early days but interesting so far without being spectacular. Action takes place on LV-178 which has a mining operation on the surface and an orbiting ship above. Writing style nothing spectacular but characters are fine so far.

    Takes place 37 years after Alien. I'll do a spoiler-tagged breakdown soon.

    Kinda meh on the preview.

    The big deal on this book is that Ripley's in it and that she's woken on the way back to Earth and there's somehow an Alien in it.

    And we get a preview of a collision in space?  They couldn't even hint at Ripley or the Alien?
