The Aliens book came first and I couldnt wait for the first one to arrive so started with the Aliens one. At first I didnt really see much if any new information, but as the book starts to reach the production there are quite a few nuggets there. Really enjoy it, and the choices for the photos, although weirdly enough theres almost no photos of the actual alien throughout the book!

I only just started reading Rinzlers Making of ESB book.  Got to finish that, then ROTJ, then Alien, then Aliens.

I have his making of STAR WARS and ALIEN books, but haven’t read any of them yet. I did spend a few hours going through the ALIEN book. An interesting deleted scene, involving Ash’s attack on Ripley, was filmed - one that also made it into the comic book adaptation.

I was hoping to get some more information on the deleted shots of the Alien, hunkered down in profile next to an air shaft opening (the same one that Parker & Lambert covered earlier, when tracking Dallas), intercut with Ripley searching for Jones on the ship’s bridge. Oh well.

Likewise got both of his Alien books but simply haven't had time to really digest them thoroughly. I'd love to get his Star Wars ones.
