Aliens: Nightmare Asylum is the title of a sci-fi novel by Steve Perry, set in the fictional Alien movie universe. It is a sequel to Aliens: Earth Hive.[1] The book was published by Bantam Books on April 1, 1993. Its plot, involving an insane military attempt to train aliens, is virtually identical to the 1985 film Day of the Dead.


Wilks, Billie, and Bueller are the last survivors of a devastating assault on the aliens' home planet. They are again refugees when they return to the solar system, fleeing Earth's Alien infestation in a military transport that hurtles them through unknown space and an unknown destination.

They are unaware that the remote colony and military outpost they will approach is at the mercy of a general named Spears with an agenda all his own. Now Billie, Wilks, and Bueller face a new nightmare, and it is nothing they could ever have imagined: a gift of madness from an alien world, an unbalanced mind and the experiences of a mysterious pilot named Lieutenant Ellen Ripley.
