Alien: Phalanx – New Alien Novel From Scott Sigler Announced for Spring 2020!

With Keith R.A. DeCandido’s Alien: Isolation novelization due out at the end of the month, a preview of the novel has showed up on Google and let the cat out of the bag about Scott Sigler’s new Alien novel!

Though titled Alien: Legion in the preview, the newly announced novel is currently under the working title of Alien: Phalanx (and that may still change) and is slated for release in spring of 2020!

Other than the above, there are no further details about what Scott has for store in us. You can follow Scott on Twitter to learn more about himself and to keep track of anything related to his Alien novel.

Scott Sigler has previously written for the Alien universe with Dangerous Prey, a short story in the Aliens: Bug Hunt anthology. Dangerous Prey is written entirely from the point of views of the Aliens and is one of the few instances that has been depicted.

    One of the worst (or best... depending on your point of view) designed Citroens ever.  It featured a Maserati engine.


    He's the man who seems to be maintaining the Aliens timeline, with some sort of relationship over at Fox.  Nobody knows for sure.  He may work for Weyland-Yutani.

    Doesn't sound like this is actually Earth's Middle Ages. Seems to be set on another planet. Which means it is either a human outpost that, for whatever reason, reverted technologically or, more likely, another civilization of essentially humans that the Engineers created. If that's the case, then this thing could be set basically wherever in the timeline and have no effect. 1,000 years after Resurrection? Sure, why not!

    Wow that's different! Also I agree with NA that it'd be really cool if this were another "human" species that the engineers seeded on some other viable planet. I'm intrigued to see how this turns out.
  4. Nightmare Asylum
    Well this isn't what I was expecting.

    EDIT: Kind of hoping to see some of the Alien 3 monk concepts used in this. Also, would be very cool if this planet isn't a human colony, but rather, another planet seeded by the Engineers.

    This sounds pretty fun. That Vikings vs Aliens comic was great, so this could be a lot of fun.

    I wonder if this is legit Earth Middle Ages or a pre-industrial humanoid alien species. The synopsis can kind of be read either way.

    Synopsis is up.

    It's Medieval carnage meets Alien as a pre-industrial society fights against extinction brought about by a massive infestation of Xenomorphs.

    "Ataegina was an isolated world of medieval castles, varied cultures, and conquests, vibrant until the demons rose and spread relentless destruction. Swarms of lethal creatures with black husks, murderous claws, barbed tails and dreaded "tooth-tongues" raged through the lowlands, killing ninety percent of the planet's population. Terrified survivors fled to hidden mountain keeps where they eke out a meager existence. When a trio of young warriors discovers a new weapon, they see a chance to end this curse. To save humanity, the trio must fight their way to the tunnels of Black Smoke Mountain--the lair of the mythical Demon Mother."

    It's all the Alien franchise,  after the first they are all incarnations of the original.

    That said, if Ghost of Walt can find that Aliens inspired movies make more than Alien ones you can guarantee that is where the franchise will go.   
  8. The Old One
    I really love Alien The Cold Forge, Isolation, Alien, enjoy Aliens and Alien³- and appreciate Covenant and even Prometheus retroactively on a good day, I really love the whole franchise regardless of my often frustration with Resurrection, Prometheus and particularly the EU.

    And I really look forward to Alien Phalanx.  ;D

    No it doesn't really impact things in any way.  What it really comes down to is that there are for the most part, 2 camps of fans for the series.  There's the Aliens fans, and then the Alien fans, and they will be arguing ad infinitude over which is the superior and definitive Aliens film.  As an extension of that, they will prefer one logo over the other.

    I think you forgot the biggest 3, people who love both Alien and Aliens....
  10. Perfect-Organism
    I like both logos.  Aliens had a lot more exposure over the past 3 decades, so it's arguably more iconic.  Even as it's own font, it's unique.  If you spell something out in the Aliens letters it is instantly recognizable where it's from, not so for the Alien font.  They're just blocky letters with no distinction worth noting.
  11. HuDaFuK
    I don't really care what logo we get so long as the story's good.

    Although I'd argue the simplistic, spaced out "A  L  I  E  N" logo is every bit as iconic as the Aliens one. Even recently, Life basically ripped-off the former on it's Blu-ray cover.

    Ye of little faith.  ;)

    Is that you Oram? lol.

    Prototype has one Alien in it? Cool, nice to have one of those once in a while. Can't wait for Phalanx, always great to have the author appear in here as well.

    Or anything pre-1979 Alien & Scott: Alien (As in everything is and seems Alien).
    Post Alien timeline: Aliens. (Aliens are coming outta the God damn walls going forward, they're known to humanity).

    As this is military, it should be under the Aliens imprint rather than Alien, IMO.  I hope we don't abandon the Aliens name and logo.  It is the iconic symbol of the series.

    It might be ALIENS, I'm not sure. Since this board broke the secret, I made that graphic myself!

    listening to the audiobook of Bughunt. looking forward to hearing one from the aliens perspective.

    A full length book could be super cool

    It won't be a full book of xenomorph perspective, I don't think the concept would support a full book (or I don't have the writing skill to make that conceit into a novel, at any rate).

    Legion? Ancient Rome setting confirmed!  :laugh:

    Seriously? Zzz setting.

    Rome is not the setting.

    Sweeter than some Arcturian boom boom!

    PS> Shouldn't there be some kind of structure as to when a title is termed Alien or Aliens? Or just use 1. It's all good though.

    Surprised there's no one wanting to make or accept 1 Alien stories anymore...

    The upcoming novel "Prototype" claims to be just one alien... but we'll see. Personally I like the distinction that the novel line is singular whereas the comic line is plural.

    And obviously I'm hyped for this announcement!
