First, I must apologize for the lack of updates recently. Real life struck hard and did not leave me much time for the Encyclopedia. However, the project was far from forgotten, and I am happy to be able to end the downtime with the release of version 3 of the Alien Encyclopedia!
While I still have to find an opportunity to watch Prometheus (partly due to the fact that it was only just released in my country), the movie clearly left its mark on the Encyclopedia. As you probably know, Prometheus was accompanied by a truckload of related media, of which a great deal expanded on the Alien universe. A major part of this information is integrated in version 3. Another large part of this update is dedicated to full coverage of the Original Sin novel. And, just for the heck of it: Full coverage of the delightfully cheesy Kenner action figures! Additional new features include a cover page and a bookmark index for easier PDF navigation.
Major kudos for this version go out to Frans Hattingh and his magnificent proofreading job. Without him, the delay for this release would have been even greater. Oh, and did I mention that he overhauled my initial cover design in his free time? I am very proud to have someone with such professionalism and dedication as part of the Alien Encyclopedia project. And let’s not forget Rado Javor, who kindly gave his blessings to one of his stunning artwork pieces being used for the cover page. Check out his work at http://radojavor.deviantart.com!
Well, what are you waiting for? Head over to the Releases page to grab version 3! With a whopping 27 additional pages, it’s the biggest update yet. Let’s see if I can top this for version 4. While I will take a short break, expect news about version 4 to be posted here soon, among other things.
P.S. Don’t forget to visit the Alien Encyclopedia on Facebook!
