Always love a new novel! Although I'm not terribly excited about Zulus character in this, but that's just because of what previous iterations of her have been. Guess we'll see...

Are there going to be any Aliens in this Aliens novel?

I know I sure buy an Alien novel to read about things other than Aliens.

Tbf we've had like 30 novels with Aliens, I'm fine with one experimenting a little bit.

TBF there are millions of books without Aliens in them, they're just not called Aliens novels because of it.

Except that one, which nobody seemed to like and nobody talks about.

This is still clearly based on the black goo though, which very much is a part of Alien by this point.

Fair point, that's like the only one I've not actually read :laugh:

Which one? Or am I being dense?

There's a reason Prometheus didn't have the Alien title in it.

EDIT

And for clarity my initial question was sincere, as there can be goo and Aliens. But if there's no Aliens I honestly don't see the point and will skip it.

I did tell you this was inevitably going to be a commonality in the franchise's future.

neomorphs are cool.

Really don't mind if they take the lead for a book


The franchise isn't called XENomorph anyway.

(thanks for diversifying the threats, Ridley)

And I did tell you I'm not interested in it, what's your point?

Premise of Engineer ship arriving at some distant colony planet to bomb the shit out of it with Black Goo (which, as HuDaFuk pointed out, already connected to Alien, whether one likes it or not) sounds interesting enough for me so I won't  be too annoyed with not having proper Aliens in the book but I can understand people who are not too happy with where Ridley took franchise with prequels' narrative being turned off by it

Don't get me wrong, I've got no problems with spinoffs. I just think leave the Alien label off it.

Fox really should've built Prometheus as a brand when they had the chance to catch all of this stuff and open up the possibilities.
