Topic So, Earth Hive....alien short story....
Posted Aug-11-2017 7:22 AM
So, because Covenant was somewhat of a let down, only to-do, a 6 or a 7 out of ten, I chose to begin reading the alien novels/short stories.
I just finished "Earth Hive". I thought it was pretty well written, good character development, and a pretty good story.
I was wondering if there was ever any thought to turning this into a screenplay, then a movie. As soon as I finished the story (approximately 260-270 pages), I looked at my fiance and said, "this would have made a movie ten times better than what covenant was".
I would like to know others' opinions and for those who have not read and of these I would urge you to if you are like me, i.e- want alien stories and was let down my fox and Scott's most recent attempt to draw on the story of this amazing creature.

also I cant remember the name of the book but theres a brilliant scene in one where the humans set a trap for the xenos and when they try to get the xenos to fall into it they don't take the bait as they don't sense any fear in the humans. great insight into the creature that we don't get in the movies.

iraptus, totally agree. there was horror there when I was reading it and also the inclusion of other alien races though long dead. plus a familiar foe returns. I thought it could make a good alternate sequel to alien
encounters, most novels are just one off stories but SOS series is a trilogy, I believe its sea of sorrows then river of pain followed by cant remember the name off hand. these are canon I believe and the most recent novels other than the AC novelisation. a must read series
