|Aliens Book 2: Nightmare Asylum
Steve Perry 1993 Bantam Books, New York
A Dark Horse Science Fiction Novel
|Book One of Aliens is "Earth Hive." This is a joint venture between Bantam Books and Dark Horse Comics. As the series has continued, many plot opportunities have been bypassed. This book continues the "screaming horror" plus someone is betraying the human species themes. The creators seem to have forgotten that the aliens were created by another species, which appears to be no nicer than our species. So where is the search for this other bioweapons/bioengineer species?|
