The Other Perfect Organism
As most of you will know, the name of my book comes from a particularly chilling line of dialogue in Ridley Scott's movie, when treacherous android Ash gets all gooey (literally) over the xenomorph infesting the Nostromo.
"You still don't understand what you're dealing with, do you? A perfect organism. Its structural perfection is matched only by its hostility."
A great line, and also the inspiration for the title of a very fine Alien podcast. The presenters of the other Perfect Organism were nice enough to invite me on as a guest, and you can listen to me here talking about the book and my love for Alien: Isolation.
And thanks to everyone who's backed the project so far. The book is close to 80% funded, and I'm confident we'll be able to hit our target soon. As ever, spreading the word would be greatly appreciated.
Enjoyed the podcast. Having also spent a long time hiding in lockers during my first play through of the game i remember reading that in the original film script lambert hid from the Alien in a locker. I wonder if the developers of Alien Isolation knew this and the liberal scattering of lockers was a nod to the original script. Hopefully you will answer in the book. Really looking forward to seeing it published.
