Alien Day is nigh, it’s tomorrow in fact, and Titan Books has three new titles to announce for the special day. You do understand we’re talking about Ridley Scott’s Alien franchise right? Ok, good, so the rest of this news post should make much more sense now if you didn’t realize that 4.26 is the official Alien Day.
Anyway, Titan Books has three new Alien-centric titles coming to retail that fans of the franchise should probably put on their radar. In fact, one of them, Alien: The Cold Forge, is out now, and it is an original story set in the Alien universe by Alex White. The next book sounds just as awesome, it’s called Alien Covenant: David’s Drawings, so it promises to go inside the mind of David as he was living on the Promethean planet and doing tests with the black goo. The final book is Jonesy: Nine Lives on the Nostromo, and it promises to retell the events from Alien from the perspective of the Nostromo’s cat.
Full summaries of each book can be found below.
