“Titan Books will release all-new canon fiction novels based on the film franchise, followed by a 35th anniversary retrospective called “ALIEN: Archives,” which will be the most comprehensive book ever created about the ALIEN franchise with new exclusive interviews with Ridley Scott and Sigourney Weaver and content that has never been released.”

There’s no official release from Titan yet but keep watching this space. Mark Salisbury also wrote Prometheus – Art of the Film for Titan last year. Thanks to DreadCentral and Cvalda for the news.

    I seriously hope this encompasses all the Alien films. It would be great to have more info and pics on 2-4... not that i don't love the 1st, but i have plenty of books just on that one already.
    Pictures of all the aliens would be great as accurate reference for my drawings!  ;D ;D ;D

    I'm certainly not complaining if it's by Mark Salisbury even if it reveals nothing particularly new. The less I say about that Alien Vault book the better in terms of accurate information

    I liked the Vault. Was a very good read.

    But yeah - there's only so many times you can say the same thing about Alien. The blurb does say Alien franchise so hopefully, it's a look at all the films.

    I'm gonna try and get more info from Titan.

    Don't really know what if anything new Riddlez would have to say. I wish someone would actually ask Sigourney some interesting questions -- set troubles on A3, etc. Won't happen, though.
