I am so damn pumped for this! We don't get enough AvP and seeing the names attached to this, and getting more AvP! Damn! I am ready! Really excited to see where Sigler, in particular, goes with AvP as a sequel to Phalanx!

Excited for this, but also really interested to see what Titan does with these licences going forward. Already we have titles split into Alien, Aliens, AvP & Predator. Broadly the same continuity, but different tones & set-ups.

Yeah thats crazy awesome! Wonder if a predator will be hunting Aliyah, she is quite the warrior.

Even though I'm primarily an Alien fan, I enjoyed If It Bleeds more than Bug Hunt. Most of the stories in Bug Hunt were scanty, cropped, obscure mess. Predator did better. And most of the stories were told from A to Z. I don't know why this happened. Perhaps because it is easier to write about the Predator - it's just a two-meter Neanderthal with blasters. And the Alien is just a vague chitinous (!) swarming of thorns (!!) and tentacles (!!!) - according to the books.

Hell yeah, can't wait to write another story about Ataegina.

And we can't wait to read it! I'll be especially curious to see if this takes place shortly after Phalanx or during another time period.

Hey Scott!
If you turn Aliens: phalanx into part 1 of an epic AVP story, like Tim Lebbon's Rage War trilogy, I'd really get into that... food for thought...

Lookin forward to this! If it Bleeds had some hiccups but for the most part it was a sleeper hit! Wouldn't have grabbed it if it weren't this site. Don't judge the Titan books by their covers. It's been a while since I read an AVP novel, was the Rage War series good? Never got around to it.

Rage War makes me call Tim Lebbon "Master of Worldbuilding". I was very, VERY impressed with picture of far future of 27th century he painted in that trilogy. For me, it succeeded in creating feeling of broad universe while keeping it in realms of Alien universe. His characters aren't always exactly multidimensional or too deep but I'd be lying if they're not a hell of a fun to read

Woh! That's a strong recommendation, I will give it a sniff. Thanks Kradan

EJA

I hope the stories are standalone, and don't tie in too much to previous novels.

Seriously, there was just so much interesting sci-fi stuff and exotic places characters visited. I loved that trilogy. Hope you'll enjoy it as much as I did  ;)
