Default ALIEN Out of the Shadows

Tim Lebbon has written a pretty darn good book set in the Alien universe, and, from what I understand, his story is considered canon (unlike most books written for the universe).


It takes place between the first two films, Alien and Aliens. The way Lebbon ties in his story is masterful (and should be kept secret so that readers will delight in its discovery).

The Alien universe is getting warm again as Dark Horse is putting out new comics, and there are several new novels set in the universe (some of them, like this one, considered canon).

If you are interested in Out of Shadows, there are several ways to experience the story.

You can read the paperback novel: Out of the Shadows at Amazon

You can listen to the unabridged audiobook: Out of the Shadows at Audible

Or, you can listen to an excellent dramatization (and I mean, this is a top notch production--check out the sample) of the story, produced by Audible Studios: Out of the Shadows - Dramatized at Audible

One of the characters is voiced by Rutger Hauer!

If you like the Alien universe, I do think that you'll like this book as it extends the original story. It's like a missing piece between Alien and Aliens.

Good Stuff!
