That date seems a little odd.

Where did the author said the aliens in this novel came from? I haven't listened to the podcast yet, since it has spoilers on the history. Can you answer it here on a spoiler tag or with a PM to me?

Oh I see, thanks. Still it would be easier to just set the story much far into the future, that way we could just imagine the aliens came from the locations of any of the other EU stories out there.

Even though I've not read the book yet, that strikes me as something that would be really interesting.

Finally got started on this last night. Ripped through quite a few chapters for one sitting and already liking it a lot.

Especially liked

And yeah, Dorian is a c*nt and Blue is probably the most interesting hero I can recall in an Alien novel, so kudos to White.

Finished reading this on Wednesday and decided to wait until I listen to the podcast before I comment.  So I listened to the podcast last night.

This book really shows what the Aliens series can be if handled by the right person.  It was epic!  One of the best Alien books, if not the best Alien book ever written.  Thanks for that Alex, and thanks for the really great podcast.

To me, Lucy was the Lambert of the novel.  I wonder how intentional that was.

The proposed audio book really gives me cause for concern.  If I don't get this as a full on Audible audio play, I will be disappointed.  I don't recall ever hearing two audio books being made of the same book, so I hope this does not spell out the death of the proper Audible play.  This book truly deserves it.

Oh, and I forgive the awkward flat headed Alien on the cover.  Is there any way I can get my hands on a copy of the instantly classic version with the erroneous 5 tubes on the Alien's back? :D

But I do hope that Titan moves away from the artist doing their covers.  It strikes me that it may be the same artist, because there is a feel of the same cheap photoshop technique.

Both Out of the Shadows and River of Pain had normal readings prior to getting adaptations. Additionally, all the readings are now done by Blackstone Audio (and have been for some time) while the adaptations are done by Audible Originals.

I, too, hope to high heaven that this gets adapted because sweet jesus it deserves it.

Ok, that's great to hear.  I never heard of those other books getting the direct reading audio version.  Anyway, if there will be the direct reading AND an audio play, even better!

Has anyone had any issues with the podcast seeming to start over again about an hour in?
