I don’t know about everyone else, but I’m feeling a little spoiled! With the announcement of Alien: Prototype, we’re now due for a total of 3 novels this year! Written by Tim Waggoner, Alien: Prototype is also set to feature Zula Hendricks as a main character.
This will mark Tim Waggoner’s first foray into the Alien expanded universe but he’s no stranger to science fiction, horror or franchise tie-ins. He has previously written for Stargate, Supernatural, Resident Evil and A Nightmare on Elm Street.
When an industrial spy steals a Xenomorph egg, former Colonial Marine Zula Hendricks must prevent an alien from killing everyone on an isolated colony planet.
Corporate spy Tamar Prather steals a Xenomorph egg from Weyland-Yutani, taking it to a lab facility run by Venture, a Weyland-Yutani competitor. Former Colonial Marine Zula Hendricks–now allied with the underground resistance–infiltrates Venture’s security team. When a human test subject is impregnated, the result is a Xenomorph that, unless it’s stopped, will kill every human being on the planet.
First introduced in the comic series Aliens: Defiance, Zula is also due to feature in a smaller way in Keith R.A. DeCandido’s upcoming Alien: Isolation novel (which is currently slated for a July 30th release).
