Release date's just been pushed back to 19th May, if Amazon's anything to go by.

I finally got this notice too. Shame. Now I doubt we'll have anything for Alien Day.  :'(

Considering Titan is a UK company it baffles me that you'd get this delay. Especially since the book was originally scheduled to release last Tuesday.

It's not unknown for Amazon to not get the Titan books in time. Suppose Forbidden Planet is actually the better place to check.

For UK buyers. I preordered this and the recent AvP anthology from Waterstones and got both a few days early.

Maybe a good option for some in future.

Forbidden Planet has the release date down as the 26th. Waterstones has them in stock now. I think this is just Amazon not getting their shipment of Titan books in time. As standard.

I've ordered a copy from Waterstones instead.

I picked up my copy from Waterstones on the 14th. Seems the best option.

How many pages out of interest? Just curious with their also being an additional RPG scenario attached.

Novel itself is around 370. The RPG scenario (Fallout) is about 50.

So is the rpg scenario decent?

Yay got it today and the cover art looks much better in real life compared to the online shots. Neat!

I've not read it. I try not to before actually getting to play the scenarios.

So I'm about 70/80 pages into this and I think it's going to take some work to win me over. There's just something about the way this is written that it makes me feel like I've missed another book or comic introducing Chad. It feels like it's written with an assumption we already know all about him so far.

I'm also not sure on how this France/England conflict seems to be being set up.

Spoiler
Random 3 World Empire merchants responding to a French colony distress call, decide to seemingly randomly off a survivor and then decide they're going to kill all other survivors and cover it up.

And the cockney is getting a bit obnoxious.

Im 70 pages in and pretty much echo the above. The characters are not winning me over at all and whilst I appreciate the tie ins to the RPG, anyone not familiar with it is going to be massively confused.

He's Amanda's totally well established husband, how can you not know everything about this important character already?
