By books do you mean novelizations of the movies or were/are there additional books out the cover more than just the movies?
PS: The original Aliens was the first movie that scared the heck out of me as a kid.
Mr Destructo said:i prefer the spin off books and the latest movie that keeps in the same theme. the first hollywood films are maybe too mass-driven whereas the spinoff books and the latest film are more for the fans.
AvP dissapointed so many people, of those i asked the disliking viewers are no-scifi fans in the main. i suspect the scifi fans who disliked it "watch" scifi but aren't real fans, just people who've accepted scifi as part of our world finally.
as true scifi fan would know the film Outland (sean connery) and know it's storyline is similar to the wild west mining town marshals situation and the weekly coach coming in. i use the film as a test for those scifi viewers who i don't think are really "fans" of the genre.
