Crafting A Complex Alien Universe, An Interview With Author Alex White – AvP Galaxy Podcast #127

We have just uploaded the 127th episode of the Alien vs. Predator Galaxy Podcast (right-click and save as to download)! It’s not secret I’m a huge fan of Alex White. Alien: The Cold Forge and Alien: Into Charybdis are up there as the best of what the franchise has to offer in my opinion. And now that Into Charybdis is out and people have had the time to get their claws on Alex’s latest masterpiece, I’m happy to welcome them back to the podcast for our latest episode! Beware spoilers.

    This was great. I had no idea you had a hand in the creation of this novel Hicks! Into Charybdis, The Cold Forge and Rogue are some of my favorite Alien novels.

    I wouldn't go that far. I mean, sure, Alex stole the Blue thing from me (though I had been referring to Dorian when I said it in the first interview)  :P but otherwise it was just reading, commenting, sound-boarding, etc. I finally got around to listening to PO's interview with them and was reminded of something I said early on in writing "do not for the love of God have any androids having their heads cut off and being carried around."  :laugh:

    Alex gets it completely, I didn't find a single thing I disagreed with them about during that interview, they hit the nail on the head every single damn time it's actually surreal.

    Whether that's the Alien being essentially tamper resistant, the Pathogen not necessarily starting out as such with potentially a life giving variation lost to the constant forward march of time, and utterly "getting people" and that's particularly evident with the various reactions to Blue.

    I believe David's actually mentioned the liquid having variations in the films but still proceeds to outline all he's aware of as though all functionally identical anyway.

    I loved the energy the back and forth.

    And I love how it felt like a couple of mates just having a passionate conversation.

    Oh and good call on Lilith, Li and Sil especially, H.R Giger's work's not just arbitrarily up for the taking, he's more than Alien, and not all of that inherently belongs to this intellectual property or indeed's right for it in the first place.

    Listening to the podcast and I love that Alex brought up that there's multiple strains of black goo.
    with blue looking for the non weaponized accelerant
    as this is something I've argued on these very boards time and again lol. Alex just gets this universe better than most.

    Finished it!!! Wow. Take a bow Alex. Fantastic story telling yet again.

    And whilst I must admit it took me a while to accept the leap around Marsalis' new transformed Queen existence, I just felt the characters were so brilliant and I became totally invested in all of them. Duncan was a great antagonist and whilst not as loathsome as Sudler, she sure was memorable.
