Sci-Fi Biweekly Bulletin: The Invisible Man, Aliens Phalanx, etc.

From spaceships to alternate history, and other worlds to nanites, science fiction is a fascinating genre of rather amazing depth that many talented writers happily delve into on a daily basis. And we, the curators here at Sci-Fi & Scary, aren’t even going to talk about a tenth of it right now. However, what you will get is a selection of movies, books, and interesting articles from across the net. Also, there’s a strong potential for puns, gifs, and a moderate amount of fangirling.

And, of course, a giveaway of a completely amazeballs book.

Aliens: Phalanx (Alien Universe) by Scott Sigler

Aliens: Phalanx book cover

It’s Medieval carnage meets Alien as a pre-industrial society fights against extinction brought about by a massive infestation of Xenomorphs.

Ataegina was an isolated world of medieval castles, varied cultures, and conquests, vibrant until the demons rose and spread relentless destruction. Swarms of lethal creatures with black husks, murderous claws, barbed tails and dreaded “tooth-tongues” raged through the lowlands, killing ninety percent of the planet’s population. Terrified survivors fled to hidden mountain keeps where they eke out a meager existence. When a trio of young warriors discovers a new weapon, they see a chance to end this curse. To save humanity, the trio must fight their way to the tunnels of Black Smoke Mountain–the lair of the mythical Demon Mother.

  1. Yesss, the old Frank Strayer movie ‘The Invisible Man’ with Claude Rains and Una O’Connor. Diggin the poster.

    The new ‘Invisible Man’ movie sounds pretty cool too, though.

    • It definitely sounds like a much different take on it, it’ll be interesting to see what they do with it!
