From the Author
Thanks everyone for the kind words!
I wrote this volume some five or six years ago having, like many fans, been caught up in the Alien series' high-tech milieu. I was later able to employ some of the material from my book in the game Aliens vs. Predator, from Fox Interactive.
Looking back now, there are many things I wish I had a chance to do again. I wish I'd had more time to re-edit the book, having written it to such a tight deadline it was almost entirely a first draft. I also wish I'd been able to cram more images into the book. However, writing it was fun, and many fans have told me how much they enjoyed it. It was good to help a universe come to life.
Thanks again to all my readers!
