I was about to pick up some new Aliens novels for pulp fun and saw that this thing clocks in at ~512 pgs according to the Amazon listing for the hardcover and paperback versions. Is that correct? Or does the AVP wiki have it correct at 340 pgs?

It is 500-some, so that should be correct. But it's great!

(Speaking of which, in the Studio Yutani interview with Aliens Infiltrator author Weston Ochse, he claimed that he was confused by the criticism that his book felt short, because he said his book was about the same length as Phalanx. He must have been looking at the AVP wiki...)

I just now read this and I will say that it really surprised me by how much it drew me in. Actually I didn't read it, I listened to the audiobook which is sort of the only way I can "read" books nowadays. I had a few problems with it, like some story elements seemed implausible or just too damn convenient for me. But it was a fun, tense read overall and I loved the protagonists.

It resolved itself a little too easily but, yeah this was a pretty interesting stab at making a medieval Alien story.
