When the Nostromo landed on planet LV-426 in Ridley Scott's Alien, the only sign of life was one of the universe's most dangerous creatures, and as fans of the films know, a failed colonization on the planet took place after Dallas and his crew paid it a visit.

I don’t often get time to read a lot of books these days, but I knew that Joseph Maddrey had a couple of genre-related titles coming out and I needed to make the time.
