    I notice there will be a hardback edition as well as the regular paperback.

    Also the release date says April 18... Surprised they'd release it so close to Alien Day, but not actually on the day itself.

    Good 'cos it's murder trying to access it through iTunes.

    Click the link above, takes you to the iTunes webpage, click the button to access through the iTunes app, it tries to download iTunes which I already have.
    Search in iTunes app, no results.
    Try it via iPhone, 'Not available in your iTunes store do you want to change?' - yes please.  Search finally able to find it on ITunes store on my phone.  Click Sample, 3/4 loads, button reverts back to Sample.

    Think I'll wait...
  3. The Alien Predator
    Wow, that's really interesting! The
    giant flying squids is going into the weird aliens territory that South China Sea loved exploring in the Predator's flashbacks. I also hope the Reapers show up again, that's be epic.
  4. Engineer
    Is there any connectivity, subtle or blatant, between the stories in this anthology? For example, do any of these stories make any references or connections to the characters, places and/or events in other stories also appearing in this anthology?

    Are we going to meet an Arcturian?

    You beat me to it!

    Well, if not an Arcturian, are we going to see any other intelligent species mentioned or met?
    To expand on this, are any other species (indigenous, nonsentient, whatever) going to show up in any capacity?

    What is the range of the timeframe that the stories take place? In between any of the movies? Centuries later?

    Are there any stories centered around movie characters (like how the Predator anthology is going to have the Harrigan/Garber story)?

    How much freedom did the authors have in picking their subject material? Was there anything that was off-limits, or anything that was mandated that they had to include?
  6. Engineer
    Will we revisit any of the places we've seen before? i.e., Lv-426, Lv-223, lv-178 (I think I got that one right), fury 161, sulaco, sevastopol, etc...? Or will the locations be all new places?
  7. Corporal Hicks
    We're going to be doing a big Q&A with the authors. As always I wanted to open the floor to any questions you guys and girls may have - ones for everyone, ones for specific authors, etc. Deadline is Friday.  :)

    Ever since River of Pain by Christopher Golden I have been COUNTING DOWN the days until the Bug Hunt novel arrives. River of Pain was one of the few Alien novels in the series that actually did justice for the Alien film franchise and I seriously can't wait to see what Bug Hunt has in store!! :o :o UBER Excited!!!
  9. The Alien Predator
    I understand that. I was very careful when getting the Rage War trilogy, I made sure they're all paperbacks and the same size (as some are smaller, I think it's the US editions which are smaller in size despite being paperbacks.)

    So anything part of a series, I prefer it to be a matching set. But if it's a standalone book of that franchise, then I can tolerate it. But like you said, hardbacks can be huge and take up more space than paperbacks.
  10. Xenomrph
    Oh don't get me wrong, I've still got it preordered, I'm just a little miffed that it's not a mass market paperback - it's gonna look a little goofy on my shelf alongside all my other Alien/Predator/AvP books that are all the same size. :P
  11. Engineer
    Oh! My mistake. You're right! Sorry, didn't mean to get anyone's hopes up. I was too focused on the "hard cover" option, and didn't pay close enough attention to the paperback option...

    I prefer Mass Paperbacks. They're smaller, more easy to pack.

    I don't trust Electronic Media (I prefer the actual feel of a book between my fingers)

    Same here. Also paperbacks tend to be cheaper.  :P

    And I like the feel and even the smell of books, it's so therapeutic as I am reading in my corner.
    I prefer the hard cover as long as it's reasonably priced. They're more durable, and it just feels more natural holding a hard cover while reading...
