The ones that are no longer sold in stores is Aliens Genocide, Rogue, Labyrinth, Music of the Spears, and Berserker.  Everything else, just ask the book store people to order it and put it on reserve for you.  That's what I did for the books that I couldn't get.  This list isn't that up to date, things may have changed but htis was the list when I went shopping for the books.

Aliens Berserker isn't on the list.  It was based off the comic Aliens Frenzy.
Title: Re: Novel Previews
Post by: Corporal Hicks on Mar 18, 2010, 07:48:30 AM
The reason Berserker isn't on here is because Amazon doesn't have a preview for the novel. This is only a thread with previews so people can have a quick look at the novels.  :)

Predator:South China Sea is easily the best of the Dark Horse Predator novels.

Awesome choice.

Agreed. Predator: South china Sea was a very good book. I just started reading Predator: Concrete Jungle even though I've already read the comic verison.

Predator South China Sea was a good book, my only complaint about it is the thickness of the spine.  As for Aliens Original Sin, it was an interesting way to expand the Aliens universe with Ripley clone #8 and the rest of the Betty crew, though the story-telling didn't seem that great.

Is this updated by any chance, I could have sworn there was a couple more AvP Novels? But very nice idea Corporal Hicks, huge list so far.

The only non-movie adaptation novel that's missing from the list is Berserker.

Yeah, I noted that as well, but Hicks says he didn't include it cause there's no preview of it like the rest of the books.

Post by: PRJ_since1990 on Feb 14, 2012, 05:52:12 AM
Awesome idea. I've got every one except Berserker. Will hopefully fix that after pay day.

Are these available on E-Readers? I don't have one personally (I'm old-fashioned) but I'm just curious if they're available for download.

Theses are very old books so I'm doubtful of that.

I know the bookstore gives them for free as long as you feed their fancy computer machine some of those tasty pieces of green paper.

Sounds like you really like Turnabout!
For anyone interested, the If It Bleeds anthology contains a short but sweet sequel to it.

Post by: Corporal Hicks on Jan 22, 2019, 07:25:58 PM
There's a sequel novel called Cold War. Otherwise the Predator novels are mostly separate. I do always recommend If It Bleeds, though! It's an anthology book that's really awesome!
