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. 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 were the last survivors of a devastating assault on the aliens' home planet. But their return to the solar system made them refugees once more, fleeing Earth and its alien infestation in a desperate attempt to stay alive. Now in an otherwise unmanned military transport, they hurtle through space. Destination: Unknown.
Little do they know the cargo they carry with them is a legacy of death that they will ultimately have to face. Nor do they know they head toward a remote colony and military outpost. This pocket of humanity at the very edges of space 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.
