“You Can’t See The Eyes of the Demon, Until Him Come Callin'” – New Anthology from Titan, Predator: Eyes of the Demon!

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.

 "You Can't See The Eyes of the Demon, Until Him Come Callin'" - New Anthology from Titan, Predator: Eyes of the Demon!

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.

    This site frightens and confuses me (i.e., I can't figure out how to do a goddamn "reply."

    @Mr.Turok: "Lil' Fibber" is now my rap name.
    @Some Old Dude: I second that motion.

    Ohhhh snap, its the author himself!  :o When does the new album drop?  :laugh:

    I will take this opportunity to say that I had gotten Phalanx two weeks ago and it was such a joy to read! If the upcoming AVP short is anything like Phalanx or better, I don't think the short will be enough for me, I need a full on novel of story itself now  :D  As a fan of all three series, I'm super curious to see how Predators will effect the people of Ataegina and in turn how will Liyah view them. I can imagine her grand disbelief on how Predators would hunt xenos for fun after all that horror of dealing with them face to face. If only the release date came sooner.

    We're scary old school. Usually we reply here using the quote button like this. We don't have a tagging feature currently.

    A tagging feature would help as sometimes it can be difficult to keep track of replies at times due to other ongoing stuff.

    *amended title. Hicks.

    (Dutch voice) FELIX! YOU SUNNOVABITCH!  :laugh:

    Seriously though great job on always finding the new book releases!

    Extremely excited for another Anthology but as another post mentioned I’d be (pleasantly) surprised if the release date didn’t change. Considering Maberry said that AVP: UP will be pushed to a Spring release date then that means Titan’s release lineup would basically be releasing a book a month:

    AVP: Ultimate Prey - “spring” so theoretically anytime after March 20

    Alien: Colony War - April 12

    Predator: Eyes of the Demon - May 24

    AVP: Rift War - June 21

    Obviously I wouldn’t complain about this release schedule  :laugh: but hopefully Titan doesn’t balk at the proximity of all these releases.

    This is awesome, If It Bleeds was a fantastic anthology and I am always eager for more Predator prose fiction. There has not been enough of it lately. I'll put a little bit of hope into the notion that this is being released to help increase support for Skulls and maybe we'll get that in June or July.
    I'm less enthused about AVP: UP being delayed until the spring. I doubt that Titan will release four A & P novels in four months as they will want to maximize sales. By comparison the Rage War trilogy was released 5-6 months between each novel. At minimum, AVP: RW will probably get delayed until August would be my guess.
    I was also hoping that AVP: UP would be released in December so that would be before the expected verdict in the Thomas Brothers' lawsuit is released. If the verdict is in their favor is that going to result in all of these novels being cancelled? I wouldn't expect Titan to put all of this effort into marketing and publishing if there was a bigger chance of them not being able to be sold. Isn't that why Marvel keeps delaying all of their Predator comics and omnibuses? It'd be a shame if they were cancelled as there's been so few Predator and AVP EU fiction in recent years.
