About the Author

David Bischoff writes science fiction books, short stories, and scripts for television. Though he has been writing since the early 1970s, and has had over 80 books published, David is best known for novelizations of popular movies and TV series including the Aliens, Gremlins, Star Trek: The Next Generation, and WarGames. Robert Sheckley was a prolific short story writer beginning in 1952 with titles including "Specialist," "Pilgrimage to Earth," "Warm," "The Prize of Peril," and "Seventh Victim," collected in volumes from Untouched by Human Hands (1954) to Is That What People Do? (1984) and a five-volume set of Collected Stories (1991). His first novel, Immortality, Inc. (1958), was followed by The Status Civilization (1960), Journey Beyond Tomorrow (1962), Mindswap (1966), and several others. Sheckley served as fiction editor for Omni magazine from January 1980 through September 1981, and was named Author Emeritus by the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America in 2001.

After reading volume one I was looking forward to this book, it did not disappoint, however it was not on par with the first. Genocide was a very good concept and I enjoyed reading it, however there could have been more story allocated to the actual mission than to building up the characters and the old "hard core woman in command" scenario has been done to death in these books, not that I'm sexist but there's only one Ripley and one Vasquez , stop emulating them !
The second story was hard to start off, the whole scenario of a thief and a geek going to an alien planet didn't do it for me. It didn't have the grit that other alien stories have, although it picked up towards the end, I had already become tired of the story. More aliens and less romance! Its an alien book isn't it !
Either way, for a couple of pounds they are both worth a read.

The first Omnibus is a guilty pleasure. I didn't even know that there was a second Omnibus. Sadly, I wish that things had stayed that way. These books are dull, predictable rubbish.

Okay, stop me if you’ve heard this one before…

Girl walks into a spacecraft filled with marines. They’re off to a planet called Hiveworld. Our gal’s badass but scared, having something of a history with the Alien sons-of-biatches they’re going to hunt. But that’s okay because there’s a company guy there and, sure, he’s a bit sleazy but she kinda likes him and thinks she can trust him and…

What? You know that one?

Safe to say, David Bischoff’s GENOCIDE, the first of two novels collected in this second volume of Titan Books new omnibus series, treads familiar ground. It’s basically a remix of James Cameron’s ALIENS, with a few things shifted around a bit, and while for some people that might be a turnoff, it kinda worked for me. It’s a page-turner, you see. Cliched characters, maybe, but Bischoff makes them work and I found myself buying into all their little dramas. The writing itself remains accessible. Clipped and very dialogue-driven. There aren’t a hell of a lot of aliens and you could say it’s heavy on the opera, light on the space. But for some reason… well, I just really enjoyed reading it.

The second book in this volume, ALIEN HARVEST by Robert Sheckley, was not just as enjoyable. In many ways, it’s a problem with tone again – unlike the novelisations, or indeed the new canonical series from Titan, penned by Tim Lebbon, James A. Moore and Christopher Golden, this book is laissez faire with the source material, creating an old-school pulp adventure that boasts more of a jovial, Dan Dare esque vibe than the darker, Gigeresque tones of the movies. Set within the context of a post-alien-invasion Earth, ALIEN HARVEST follows a ragtag band of mercs on the search of a vast store of Alien jelly, a cure-all nectar with narcotic properties.

Following on from the first omnibus of Aliens novels re-released early in 2016 is The Complete Aliens Omnibus Volume 2, and as you can imagine it does exactly what it says on the cover. While the first omnibus was a trilogy that carried an overall story throughout the three books, this second collection contains two relatively stand-alone novels, Genocide and Alien Harvest. However, both are set in the same timeline as that first omnibus and as such some knowledge of it may be of use, though not entirely required.

In Genocide, the alien queen is dead, the hive mind left to flounder… and on a world bereft of its leader two strains of Alien divide their forces for world-shattering, acid-drenched war. On Earth, in the wake of alien infestation, athletes are flocking to humanity’s Goodwill Games. But some come with a deadly new tool: a drug called Fire, distilled from the very essence of the Aliens’ body chemistry.
The military wants it. Pharmaceutical kingpin Daniel Grant wants it. But the only place the essential ingredient can be found is on that terrible world, convulsed by Alien holocaust.
In Alien Harvest royal jelly, the most illicit of Alien by-products, is keeping Dr Stan Myakovsky alive. A once-famous scientist fallen on hard times, Stan is fighting off the repo-men and trying hard to patent the cybernetic ant that will reinstate his reputation. Julie Lish is beautiful, mysterious, and totally amoral. She has a plan so outrageous that there might be one chance in a million to pull it off.
Together they make an attempt to grab the ultimate treasure—royal jelly from an Alien hive.

Following on from the events depicted in The Female War, Aliens: Genocide is set a couple of decades down the line.
