Alan Dean Foster’s novelization helps fans connect with world of ‘Alien: Covenant’

Although I gave "Alien: Covenant" a good review earlier this summer, I did sympathize with one Amazon reviewer's all-caps suggestion to the filmmakers: "Stop killing off main characters between movies." This is a reference to the infamous decision to start "Alien 3" by killing off Hicks and Newt, and the franchise's (arguably) repeated mistake this year, as "Prometheus' " Elizabeth Shaw is dispatched offscreen before the events of "Covenant."

Lincoln Child treks through foreboding Adirondacks in brisk ‘Full Wolf Moon’

Lincoln Child has already shown his skills in the "sense of place" adventure genre with the likes of "Deep Storm" (the ocean floor), "Terminal Freeze" (the Alaskan tundra) and "The Third Gate" (the swamps of northeast Africa), and he does it again with "Full Wolf Moon" (May, hardcover), set in New York's Adirondack Mountains and the surrounding woods. His enigmalogist lead character, Jeremy Logan, has been somewhat slow to develop, but that changes here in a more personal yarn.
