Just ordered it. Looking forward to seeing what's in here based on descriptions I've read so far.

I finally started Alien Out of the Shadows and can't put it down. Massive improvement over the Dark Horse series. Very excited to continue on with Titan's run of the franchise.

I recently re-read Criminal Enterprise.  Like a lot of the old Dark Horse Press stuff I found it a bit meh when I first read it years ago.  This time wasn't too bad though.  I'd forgotten how sweary it was.  :laugh:

Yeah. That bit at the end was not as strong as the bulk of the story. I really enjoyed it overal though.

How far you in ?

Hoping to pick up a copy of this at the weekend. Although unfortunately I'm in the middle of a massive and incredibly engrossing book, so I probably won't get around to reading it for a few weeks lol.

What you reading?  I'm gonna start Stephen King's IT after Bug Hunt. It's quiet large.

A spy/terrorism thriller from a couple of years ago called I Am Pilgrim. Was recommended by a complete stranger in the book shop. It's excellent if you like that kind of thing.

Fourth story.  I forget what it's called.

  Enjoying this one the most so far.  Abnett's story was good too.  The Bishop story was a bit hit and miss.

To be fair, that one's the best from that series although I haven't read Cauldron yet. Haven't heard good things though.

This should be coming in the mail today and I can read along with everyone.

That title rings a bell.

Is it like a Bourne type thing ?

Not other than the fact it stars a modern-day intelligence operative.

It's basically just the tried and true "retired agent is called back into the fold to catch dangerous madman" story that's been done plenty of times before. It's just done bloody well. Really well written and despite being so long it's never dragged once.
