Though their upcoming Alien vs. Predator anthology has been pushed back from December until spring, a new Predator anthology from Titan Books has now gone up for pre-order on Amazon! Following on from the previous anthology If It Bleeds (which we loved), the new Predator anthology is also titled after an iconic quote from the series and previous editor Bryan Thomas Schmidt is returning for the same duties on Predator: Eyes of the Demon!
A brand-new anthology from a diverse lineup of authors, offering taut and dramatic exclusive tales set on Earth and in dark reaches of space, featuring the ultimate hunters known as Predators.
Fifteen original, never-before-seen short stories set in the expanded Predator universe from the first film, featuring the ultimate hunters, the Yautja from the movie Predator. Set in the recent past, the present, and the future, these edge-of-your-seat adventures by many of today’s top SF and horror authors take place on Earth and in the dark, unforgiving reaches of space. The diverse, multi-ethnic group of authors includes New York Times bestsellers, Stoker Award winners, and acclaimed contributors to the Alien and Predator universes. Included in this volume are Native American award-winning horror author Stephen Graham Jones, Linda Addison— the first African American to win the Stoker Award, Peter Briggs, screenwriter for Hellboy, New York Times bestselling author and visionary podcaster Scott Sigler (Aliens: Phalanx), award-winning author Ammar Habib (The Heart of Aleppo), New York Times bestseller Jonathan Maberry, Emmy nominated writer Joshua Pruett of Mystery Science Theater 3000, Tim Lebbon, author of the Aliens vs. Predators “Rage War”, and many more.
While we don’t have a full roster of authors on Eyes of the Demon, we know that Scott Sigler is returning! We may know him best for his work on Aliens: Phalanx (another one we’re big fans of), Scott has also written a short in the upcoming Aliens vs. Predator: Ultimate Prey.
Jonathan Maberry is also returning for the new anthology, having written previously for Predator: If It Bleeds and AvP: Ultimate Prey and edited Aliens: Bug Hunt. The Rage War’s Tim Lebbon will also be contributing a short to Eyes of the Demon, having also written short stories in both If It Bleeds and Bug Hunt.
And interestingly there’s another familiar name to Alien and Predator fans in the author line-up revealed so far. Not a name we recognize from previous books, but rather from the front of a screenplay. None other than Peter Briggs will be writing a short for Predator: Eyes of the Demon! We recently had the pleasure of talking to Peter Briggs on the Alien vs. Predator Galaxy Podcast, which if you haven’t listened to yet, you really should!
Predator: Eyes of the Demon is currently available for pre-order on Amazon US and is currently slated for release May 24, 2022. Thanks to felix for the news.
