When the Colonial Marines set out after their deadliest prey, the Xenomorphs, it’s what Corporal Hicks calls a bug hunt—kill or be killed. Here are fifteen all-new stories of such “close encounters,” written by many of today’s most extraordinary authors.
Set during the events of all four Alien™ films, sending the Marines to alien worlds, to derelict space settlements, and into the nests of the universe’s most dangerous monsters, these adventures are guaranteed to send the blood racing—
One way or another.

A bunch of the stories are really good. Some use characters from the films that makes no sense or just messes up the canon, how hard would it have been to change the names and have original characters...

I hadn't heard anything about this, so I picked this up on a massive special as a gamble thinking it might be pretty average and a bit of a cash-in on the franchise given the hype for the prequel movi...
