They did an Audible version of the novel, but removed it from the shop for some reason. I got it before it was removed, but now Shevvie can't find it to get it and support just told him it'd been removed.

again:

this book adapts gibson's first draft.

the audible play adapts gibson's second draft.


first draft has hundreds of aliens.
second draft only has two aliens.

They're very different stories.
Right, and I have both on audible. I'm looking at them both in my library right now.
The pat cadigan book is narrated by Bradford Hastings. It's not an audio drama, it's just a standard audiobook.

Yeah, I was wondering about this. I usually pick the Alien novels up on audiobook, and hadn't seen it available yet. Given that basically everything gets an audiobook these days, I thought that was odd.

Goodness gracious now we're getting a novel adaptation of Gibsons A3?! I mean it's an interesting take for a sequel but we already have the script, comic and audio drama. I guess Titan wanted in on the fun too lol.

I'd like to see some of the other screenplays get some attention, like Ward's and Twohy's which I actually preferred to Gibson's screenplays. Don't get me wrong, I like Gibson's screenplays, I just find the other two more interesting; I think Twohy's is maybe more what you'd want and Ward's is the most fascinating of the bunch. I think they simply focus more on Gibson because he is a bigger name.
