Nope, not yet sure. I hope I hear more soon because other projects are piling up rapidly. I've got a writing instruction book coming out in Sept., a Steampunk coffee table book next year, and a few anthologies.

But the one you guys might be interested in is called Finch and it's a noir thriller with a fantasy setting, coming out in November. It's got some of the same kinds of thrills and chills as my Predator novel.

If I did an Aliens novel I'd have to start writing it by early 2010 probably.

Ah--didn't know he/it was called that. That's one of the coolest things about the Alien movie and that would definitely be part of my novel if it's allowable by Dark Horse. (This is assuming they ask me to do an Aliens novel.)

You know, I'd assumed you intended the living ships you mentioned to be the Space Jockeys.

Is the notion of the Predators stealing technology in the DH bible?

Greetings Mr. VanderMeer, I thourghly enjoyed Predator: South China Sea, and after reading it, a question pops to my mind:

Is the character 'Onyx' actually Dutch (Arnie) from Predator 1?

Best Predator book yet. It really captures the feel of "Predator" while inrtoducing new ideas. South China Sea all the way! Good Job Jeff!

I don't know if Mr. VanderMeer still checks this thread, but I just sent you an Email to see if you'd be interested in contributing to a project I've been working on.

Mr. VanderMeer, picked up your novel again and have been reading it and I have one question, when Tau asks Horia if he has a Romanian proverb for the situation and he says "No boobies here." what did it mean? Cause this has been bugging me for a while. Does it just simply mean no women around? Wanting sex before the could die? A joke at how women usually survive horror scenarios more than men? I mean maybe I'm overthinking it, but I just wanted to know what you had to say about it.
