"If it bleeds, we can kill it", said Major Alan Dutch Schaefer in the original 1987 Predator. Fortunately for movie buffs, it hasn't been that simple for the Predator franchise. Next year Shane Black, best known as Hawkins who was the first victim killed by the Predator in Predator, will bring the fourth instalment in the film series to the big screen. But for Predator fanatics who can't wait until next year, to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the original film's release, Titan Books has released this collection of sixteen all-new stories.
For many millennia the Yautja - an extraterrestrial race of hunters known to generations of filmgoers, comic readers and gamers, as the Predators - have stalked the most dangerous of prey, humans, on Earth and off world. Offered in this near 500-page anthology are imaginative tales of such human hunts that tread new ground, only hinted at in the film trilogy and AVP spin-offs. Best of all, the list of contributing authors reads like a whos-who of science fiction novels. The full list includes: Kevin J. Anderson, Jennifer Brozek, Larry Correia, Mira Grant, Tim Lebbon, Jonathan Maberry, Andrew Mayne, Weston Ochse, S. D. Perry, Steve Perry, Jeremy Robinson, John Shirley, Bryan Thomas Schmidt and Holly Roberds, Peter J. Wacks and David Boop, Wendy N. Wagner, and Dayton Ward.
