Celebrate Alien Day with Titan Books!

Calling all Nostromo Sapiens! Today is Alien Day, a day to celebrate all things Alien. And what better way to toast the terrifying life forms than with another stunning new chapter in the Alien legend, Tim Lebbon's Alien: Invasion!

 

For centuries Weyland-Yutani has tried to weaponize the aliens. Now someone has beaten them to it, sweeping through Yautja space and turning predator into prey.

Faced with the overwhelming forces of the Rage, Earth envoys forge an unprecedented alliance with the Predators. Yet even the combined might of two races may not be enough to stop the carnage, as an unstoppable swarm of Xenomorphs topples planet after planet, penetrating ever deeper into the Human Sphere.

Alien: Invasion is the second original novel in an Alien vs Predator “Rage War” series, continuing from Predator: Incursion, also by Tim Lebbon.

We spoke to Tim about all things Alien.

When did you first get into the Alien series?

TL: I think I was about 13 or 14.  My mum and brother were big fans of Alien, and eventually I got to see it and became an instant fan.  The image that struck me hardest from the whole film was what became known as the Space Jockey.  It was so mysterious, so alien, implying so much in one single image that it stuck in my mind for a long time afterwards.  Even now -- with that long-deal alien explained (unfortunately, in my opinion) -- it still sends a chill down my spine every time I see it.  

What is it about Alien that stands out for you?

TL: The whole exploration of that dead alien's ship was an incredible scene, dripping with sense of wonder, rich in tension, beautifully designed and filmed.  One of my favourite moments in any film. 

Which is your favourite Alien film?

TL: Well, after saying all the above, I think I'd have to say Aliens.  For me it's an almost perfect film.  The first hour has some of the tension and fear of Alien, then even when the fighting kicks off there's a sense of hopelessness, and humanity still discovering it's (small) place in the universe.  The acting is uniformly brilliant, especially Sigourney Weaver, who lifts the whole movie to a higher level.  I also love the fact that you get to know and love the marines before most of them get their faces bitten off.  I can't think of another film where you become so familiar and fond of a ensemble cast as large as this one.  As I understand it, the initial scenes of them waking and exchanging banter aboard the Sulaco were filmed towards the end of the shoot so that the actors had become familiar with their parts, and got to know each other well.  It shows.  I watched it again just last weekend, showing it to my son for the first time, and I enjoyed it then as much as I ever have before.  Just brilliant, and Cameron's finest moment. 

Whose vision of Alien most influences your work and why - Ridley Scott, James Cameron, David Fincher or Jean-Pierre Jeunet?

TL: I'd have to say Cameron, especially if we're talking about the 4 novels I've written in the alien universe.  He opens up the whole Weyland-Yutani story, and implies a lot of backstory with just a few lines here and there.

What has been your favourite part of writing for the Alien universe?

TL: Writing about the Colonial Marines.  My trilogy The Rage War was set in 2692, a long time after the first two brilliant movies, and I had to think about how the marines might have changed and adapted to becoming, in effect, a police force for The Company.  I also got to create and visit loads of planets and habitats (not literally, of course.  The mileage costs would have been prohibitive) ... and destroy some of them.  World building is something I love doing in my fiction, and in these novels I got to do an awful lot!

How will you be spending Alien day?

TL: I might just watch Alien again!  And I hope I'll be taking part in an interview or two. Once that's all over, all we need is a deck of cards.
