Tie-ins: Alien

The Alien franchise has crept along slowly but steadily for going on forty years - not bad for a series devoted to people walking slowly down humid corridors.  Many of these are available in affordable omnibus editions.

1986: Aliens by Alan Dean Foster
1992: Alien 3 by Alan Dean Foster
1997: Alien Resurrection by A.C. Crispin

2017: Alien: Covenant by Alan Dean Foster

Continuing stories:

2006: DNA War by Diane Carey
2007: Cauldron by Diane Carey
2007: Steel Egg by John Shirley
2008: Criminal Enterprise by Stephani Perry
2008: No Exit by B. K. Evenson

1993: The Female War by Steve Perry and Stephani Perry
1994: Genocide by David Bischoff
1995: Alien Harvest by Robert Sheckley

Because of the gaps between films, the continuity is all over the place as each film throws everything out of whack.  The crossovers with Predator will be handling separately.
