Alan Dean Foster
1992, 1993, Warner Books, New York
Novelisation of the third Alien movie in which Ripley crash lands on a prison planet and discovers a xenomorph has also come along.
This is not a bad story, I really enjoyed the movie and the novel is very similar. However, at times it read like there was more than one author - it could have done with a bit more editing.
