It’s shaping up to be a big summer for the Predator franchise. Among the new media releasing is the upcoming Predator anthology book, Predator: Eyes of the Demon. The anthology is edited by writer & editor Bryan Thomas Schmidt, who also contributed a short of his own to the book.

This will be his second Predator anthology after Predator: If It Bleeds, which we heaped praise upon in our review. Bryan also edited the first AVP anthology, alongside Aliens: Bug Hunt editor Jonathan Maberry, which is due to release in early March. And now we have a cover for the Predator: Eyes of the Demon!

While there are many new names to the Predator franchise, there’s also a number a familar names in that line-up! Peter Briggs wrote the first attempts to get Alien vs. Predator onto the big screen. Nancy A. Collins wrote Predator for Dark Horse Comics with Hell Come A Walkin’. Robert Greenberger previously authored Predator: Flesh and Blood. And Tim Lebbon wrote many Alien novels for Titan, along with the Alien vs. Predator Rage War series, in addition to contributing shorts to both of Titan’s previous anthologies.

Jonathan Maberry edited Aliens: Bug Hunt and also wrote Gameworld in Predator: If It Bleeds.

UPDATE

Following the cover reveal and release of the full author list, Bryan Thomas Schmidt has posted about the book on his website. This update from the editor/writer gives some clues as to what to expect from this new anthology.

“PREDATOR. My third such book over all—after PREDATOR: IF IT BLEEDS (2017) and ALIENS VS. PREDATORS: ULTIMATE PREY (March 2022) also from Titan Books—EYES OF THE DEMON is filled with great authors and stories and I guarantee you will see Predators, both male and female, like you have never seen them before. We have some awesome stories with unique approaches and settings. It’s not just the usual shoot ém up. And we did not focus on the historical time travel angle either. There’s even a new story featuring Dutch Schaefer that ties together the first two movies like never before and fills in gaps in the universe. So, along with the cover, here’s the list of great writers participating

Linda Addison – Peter Briggs – Robert Greenberger – Ammar Habib – Stephen Graham Jones – Gini Koch – Michael Kogge – Tim Lebbon –Jonathan Maberry – Kim May – Yvonne Navarro – Joshua Pruett –AR Redington – Bryan Thomas Schmidt – Scott Sigler

As some may notice, several of these authors have written in this universe before as with my last books: Tim Lebbon, Jonathan Maberry, Nancy Collins, Robert Greenberger, Yvonne Navarro, Scott Sigler, and myself. But also screenwriter Peter Briggs makes his fiction debut. He’s the guy who in the 1990s sold a spec screenplay for Aliens Vs. Predator that launched a franchise (even though his script was never actually used).

We’re talk 16 all new tales here, folks. And this will be one of three Predator books Titan releases this year. That’s a lot to look forward to! We can’t wait for you to see it. Preorder now here: https://amzn.to/3IEEcUg

    The way this is shaping up to be, this might be my first Predator book. That tie in with Dutch got me hooked.

    I never read the Hunters series but I listened to the podcast and how Dutch was barely in it considering his tapes in Hunting Grounds, so I hope this one makes good use of him.

    Hunters 3 wasn't meant to be the last book, though it's not a very good sequel either. I'd recommend the Hunters series but 3 kind of sucks even if the character design of the Predators is alright. It had some production issues but you'd think someone would've brought up Dutch to the writers of that given he was back in Hunting Grounds, and Stalking shadows that same year. It'd have been nice to tie all that together given how big it was to get Dutch back. Further irritating given Hunters 1 was a bonus included on either the pre-order or deluxe edition of Hunting Grounds. You'd think someone would've told Darkhorse.

    Phalanx is great example of Scott's writing and I was curious if Voodoo (primarily Predfan as far as I know) read it

    If not, you have to force him, Hicks ! Threaten to ditch him off podcast if he doesn't comply

    I don't think we've heard if Eyes' short relates to Phalanx, have we? We know Ultimate Prey's does!

    re: Youll's artwork. I've always liked them myself. Even the McFarlane's Celtic on the cover of Midnight. But South China Sea's is easily the best - even if not overly relevant to the plot. lol
  6. RidgeTop
    I was only teasing. Yeah I quite liked those covers too.

    South China Sea and Turnabout were the stronger ones. Forever Midnight seemed like a photoshop of the McFarlane Celtic, and Flesh and Blood had that shorter stuntman in the Scar costume I think.

    All four had a unique color set complimentary with the logo as well.

    Oh, the cover good old days....

    The ones with all the ADI designs? :p

    Oh, here we go. First, I love the Celtic mask. And you know I've found their problem has always been execution under the bio-mask and head proportion, not in concept. And Stephen Youll's art doesn't have those problems.

    My two favorites being:

    I like those too but Youll makes the cake, and takes the cake, for me. Love it!

    They just don't do those nice illustrated covers like they used to. All photoshop jobs now it seems.

    Looks like they've made good use of that original Hot Toys "Jungle Hunter" figure over the years.

    Yep, this is indeed a reuse of the original Blu-ray set cover:

    Color scheme looks good but as has become common with Titan I do wish they'd put more effort into the covers.
