Alien: Out of the Shadows is a novel written by Tim Lebbon and published by Titan Books. Set between Alien and Aliens, the book chronicles Ellen Ripley's involvement in a Xenomorph outbreak on the planet LV178 and the mining vessel in orbit above it. The survivors' attempts to escape the creatures are further complicated by Ash, whose AI consciousness has survived inside the shuttle that brought Ripley to them.
Originally slated for release in December 2013, the book was later delayed until January 7, 2014. It was later delayed again, and finally saw release on January 28, 2014. The novel is the first in a trilogy tied into the movies, and was followed by Alien: Sea of Sorrows, written by James A. Moore and released on July 29, 2014.

|Did You Know?|
- While the Alien does not have eyes in Alien, it does have human eyesockets in its skull under its domed carapace. While they are difficult to discern in the movie, they are quite visible in production stills of the suit.
- Although Alien is lauded as a classic today, the critical reception at the time of its release was lukewarm.
- Although the M41A Pulse Rifle props used in Aliens were constructed from a Thompson submachine gun, a cut down Remington Model 870 and the heat shield and foregrip of a Franchi SPAS-12, a Heckler & Koch MP5 was originally going to be used as the base of the rifle, rather than the Thompson. However, the originally MP5-based design still appears in the film on Private Frost's "PEACE THROUGH SUPERIOR FIREPOWER" T-shirt.
- The actor who played Rusten Quinn in Alien vs. Predator, Carsten Norgaard, broke a rib during the filming of his fight with Celtic at the mouth of the ice tunnel, but did not attribute the pain to a broken bone at the time. In fact, he continued working for the remainder of the day and all of the following day before realizing the nature of his injury and receiving treatment.
