Description

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 eighteen 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.

Full list of authors include Paul Kupperberg, Dan Abnett, Rachel Caine, Yvonne Navarro, Christopher Golden, Matt Forbeck, Ray Garton, Weston Ochse, David Farland, Larry Correia, Keith R.A. DeCandido, Briane Keene, Heather Graham, Mike Resnick, Marina J. Lostetter, Jonathan Mayberry, James A. Moore, Scott Sigler, and Tim Lebbon.

Full cast of narrators include James Anderson Foster, Eric G. Dove, R. C. Bray, Chris Andrew Ciulla, Nicol Zanzarella, James Patrick Cronin, Suzanne Elise Freeman, Andrew Eiden, Michael David Axtell, Grover Gardner, Priya Ayyar, Peter Berkrot, Emily Sutton-Smith, Hillary Huber, Keith Szarabajka, Greg Tremblay, Kevin Kenerly, and Amy Landon.

Great stories if you like the Aliens franchise.

All stories were well written and very well read. Definitely worth the download if you like the genre! Siglers contribution from the stand point of the alien was particularly well done and unique.

great series of stories told by the various authors. a really cool outside the box way of showing you what the Colonial Marines did elsewhere in this incredible story. very cool!

Aliens: Bug Hunt - A Fantastical Journey in Space

Aliens: Bug Hunt is an imaginative and enjoying look at the Alien expanded universe through the eyes of the colonial marines. As a testament to the longevity of the franchise, it is an ambitious and exciting take on the legacy brought to life on screen with the original Alien film in 1979, and then again in 1986 with its sequel Aliens. These adventures are a fun take on the source material and stay true to much of the mythos set down in previous works, both on paper and on the silver screen. However, the ones I find the most engaging and well crafted are the ones which prominently feature xenomorphs, and less so their speculative counterparts. While those sections have a magnificent and well thought out premise, especially probing the bounds of what we know to exist in this particular cinematic and literary universe, they don't have nearly the same punch or draw that the originals do. This doesn't mean that the authors behind these particular adventures didn't write well, or create memorable stories, but it does mean I was less enthusiastic about listening to them or connecting with their characters as I was when xenomorphs arrived on scene to sew their unique brand of chaos and horror. Overall I do recommend this as a great listen for anyone interested in probing the boundaries of the Aliens Franchise, getting a glimpse of the action from the side of our friends in the colonial marines.

Overall Not too bad

I knew exactly what I was buying when I bought it. The first thing I always, repeat ALWAYS do is to listen to the samples..I tend to go on from there. Listen and read the reviews...etc..I thought everyone did this but after reading some to the reviews no so... I decide if I want to purchase it by doing this.. It's my process.. I make my decision based on the the narrator. (yes, believe it or not) Because as we ALL know or maybe just some of us, a bad narrator can really ruin the book. my example is Scott Brick. and his doing Mitch Rapp?? Seriously?? Give me a break..yes, yes I know no one is George Guidall but Scott Brick? I just don't get or like his "breathless" style. It's annoying. I avoid all his reads..ergo I miss out on some really great novels because of it, I know. Especially Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan series or Hurwitz's Evan Smoak series..I won't go near them because he reads them... it is what it is I guess..Anyway back to this one..I knew going in that these were short stories about Colonial Marines and NOT the ALIENS...like some on the review side expected...So I knew what I was getting into.. also listening to the sample said exactly that...again..I knew what was coming..It kind of baffles me when you read a negative review and they say things like they were expecting another performance story with multiple characters ie..ALIENS: Out of the Shadows and "River of Pain" as well as the new one "Sea of Sorrows",,(ALL EXCEPTIONALLY DONE & TERRIFIC) So here we have many short stories about the Colonials and what and how they deal with "Bugs" Not all Xenomorph's stories either..(as mentioned in the review sample) I knew this as well..so given what was ahead..I had been prepared and they are enjoyable short stories about the Colonial Marines and how they deal with these "Space Bugs" . I liked most of the narrators..however some were a little pedantic and not very interesting to listen to..but you do get some great ones...ie R.C. Bray..he ALWAYS Brings it...I'd love for R.C to do the Rapp books that is for sure..sorry...I get riled whenever I think about how I miss that character..in every way..Vince Flynn was on a completely different level in IMHO.
SO there you go...I think if you enjoy the parts in the Alien series about the Colonial Marines, you'll like this book. I would recommend it...

the title is at least half false advertisement

this book should have been called "stories of the colonial Marines" not aliens because literally less than half of the stories actually involved the Xenomorphs and all the good narrators had the crappy stories

Uneven but mostly good

As you would expect from a collection of short stories, it's uneven. But generally I enjoyed most of them. Unfortunately it got off to an inauspicious start with "Chance Encounter", but immediately went uphill with "Broken". My 2 favorites - "Broken" and "A More Dangerous Prey" had similar themes of telling familiar stores from a different perspective. "Broken" has the added bonus of absolutely fantastic narration by (I assume?) R.C.Bray (although in truth narrating "A More Dangerous Prey" was a daunting task pulled off well). Other favorites include "Blowback", "Exterminators", "Darkness Falls" and especially "Zero to Hero". Fun listen all in all.

I really enjoyed this book!

Suspenseful, engaging & sometimes plain scary. I appreciate the fact that more than just Alien Xenomorph was featured. Number 18 story was the absolute best. The narration was also very good thank you. I look forward to the next one.

All Around Excellent

Very good collection of Bug stories with great narration. My favorite was Jonathan Maberry's Deep Black. If you are a fan of the franchise, especially the first two movies, you will enjoy this listen.
