The Alien novels are an extension of the Alien movie franchise. The novels are based in the universe created by screenwriters Dan O'Bannon, Ronald Shusett and Alan Dean Foster. Up until 1998, the novels were published by Bantam Books and were all adaptations of various comics previously published by Dark Horse Comics. Between 2005 and 2008, a run of original stories was published by Dark Horse Comics under their DH Press imprint starting with "Original Sin" which takes place after the events of the fourth film despite being based on the second film. In 2014, new original stories have been published by Titan Books, using the "Alien" trademark, making the novels based on the first film.
