David F. Bischoff (December 15, 1951 – March 19, 2018) was an American science fiction and television writer. Born in Washington . Bischoff wrote science fiction books, short stories, and scripts for television. Though he began writing in the early 1970s, and had over 80 books published, Bischoff was best known for novelizations of popular movies and TV series including Aliens, Gremlins 2: The New Batch, Star Trek: The Next Generation, and WarGames.

Their queen is dead and the hive mind has been left to flounder on its own. On a world bereft of its only guiding force a schism is taking place: two strains of alien, formerly united by one all-powerful mother, now divide their forces for a world-shattering, acid-drenched war.

On a world bereft of its only guiding force a schism is taking place: two strains of alien, formerly united by one all-powerful mother, now divide their forces for a world-shattering, acid-drenched war. On Earth, after a generation of rebuilding in the wake of alien infestation, athletes from every corner of the world are flocking to humanity's Goodwill Games. But some come with a dangerous new tool: a drug called Fire, distilled from the very essence of the aliens' body chemistry. The military wants it, Pharmaceutical kingpin Daniel Grant wants it. And the only place the essential ingredient can be found is on a world convulsed by alien holocaust.

Pretty good plot, characters wane a bit but overall enjoyable read and welcome addition to the alien universe.

I like the idea of Xeno Zip, honestly I thought this book was going to suck. I was hoping the series would continue with Ripley and Billie and the soldier (I forget the name).

This book had a little more damaged then indicated. It also had unknown spills on the pages. I bought this book for my son and he did not want to read it because of whatever was the spill on the pages.

I've read several negative reviews about this book. I agree it is different than the first three in the series by S. Perry, but that does not make it a bad thing. I was hoping Wilks and Billie would've continued on in the story, but since they did not it allowed for new characters to emerge.

Response to lack to Alien fighting.....yes this book does not have the main characters blowing apart aliens and spraying acid around every corner, instead the story builds on a new storyline; corporations. It shows how corporations have capitalized on the aliens invasion, using Royal Jelly to create a new drug then profit from it. One of the main characters, Grant, is the type of businessman you love to hate only after money and easy women. I really enjoyed seeing how his character grew and what happened at the end (but I won't tell you that).

Of course there is a strong, tough woman as a main character (what Alien book would be complete without one?). With her military background, Colonel Kozlowski may even be tougher than the famous Ripley. She knows what she wants and how to get it.

Overall I enjoyed this book. It read quick like the three before for it, but had plenty of story and characters and make it worth your time. If you want a change of pace in the Aliens series I recommend it.

Aliens Novels: Book 4, Genocide / 0-553-56371-8

"Genocide", the fourth book in the Aliens series (after Earth Hive,Nightmare Asylum, and The Female War), marks a switch from the Perry authors of the first three books (Steve and S.D.) to author David Bischoff and to a whole new set of characters. The switch is not beneficial to the series, and I will say up front that this is one of the worst, most poorly written novels I have ever read. With that out of the way, let's begin.

One thing needs to be clear up front: if you are hoping to read a book involving the aliens, this is NOT the book for you. This novel is 281 pages long and outside of a quick and dirty battle in the first 20 pages of the book, you will not see an alien until page 200. Not a single alien battle, not a single drop of adrenaline until page two-oh-oh.

Also, it needs to be pointed out: if you enjoy the aliens series for the fan details and the world building, this is not the book for you. Almost every possible detail fleshed out in the previous three books is completely contradicted here, from the major (babies now need 'royal jelly' to become queens) to the minor (Hiveworld's gravity is now 0.9 times that of Earth's, instead of 1.5, for no reason whatsoever). Most of the changes are unnecessary and repetitive (the term "royal jelly" is used almost once per page), and a lot of little details, like scientists calling the aliens "bugs" instead of "drones" just makes this book feel like it was written by a teenage boy.

Speaking of, it's time to cover what the 200 non-alien filled pages talk about. If you ever hoped to hear painfully corny references to Ghostbusters and Superman in a futuristic novel set after an apocalypse has wiped all of Earth's culture and most of its inhabitants away, this is the novel for you! If you look for terms like "hunky", "hump", and "horny bunnies" in your alien novels, then look no further. Note that there is not *actual* sex in this novel, because sex is for grown-ups and this novel was not written, apparently, by a grown-up. There is, instead, a lot of juvenile 'locker room' talk of sex, a lot of juvenile sexual angst, and a totally realistic angry feminist who secretly likes it when men inappropriately feel her up, because then she has the dual pleasure of decking them AND knowing that she's fulfilled her purpose as a woman by being hawt. Oh, yes, and every woman is described as having a smoking hot rack. As in - and this is a direct quote - "She was a hot, big-busted brunette with her spangled dress spray-painted on."

I really cannot stress enough how truly bad the writing in this novel is. I would regularly stop and read passages out loud so that everyone could groan and accuse me of making this stuff up. It's really that bad. I mean, the *only* description supplied for the alien queen's augmented guards is: "It was big and it was fast, and it was mean. The next one was even bigger, and even faster." Oh, yeah, I feel like I'm actually *there*, what with thrilling details like that.

We trudge on to the plot. Follow me here: The pharmaceutical companies on Earth are using alien royal jelly to create a new kind of steroid. There's a lot of profit in it, and even the military is interested in its applications, but the jelly is running out. So the plan is to gather up a bunch of marines and send them off to Hiveworld to collect a bunch of jelly. For a company who *literally* wants to sell drugs to kids. We've gone from an "Earth in danger of annihilation" plot in the first book, an "innocent people are being murdered by a madman" plot in the second book, and a "we must risk our lives on one last long shot to save Earth" plot in the third book, to this. Drugs for kids and athletes, and the marines might die in the process.

I'm not sure why we're supposed to care that the marines might die, seeing as how they seem to deserve it. The ship captain plays crossword puzzles rather than steering the ship, the commanding officer fails to point out the obvious that if the scientists on board wanted to experiment with creating an alien queen, they could have waited until they were back on Earth rather than dragging it along (note: absolutely nothing exciting or interesting comes from this side-plot), and the grunt marines include such characters as the "Jilted Girl Who Pretends Aliens Look Like Her Ex-Boyfriend" and the "Fun Loving Guy Who Brings His Saxophone For The Trip". Not only does he bring his saxophone on the trip, he takes in on the drop ship down to Hiveworld, although that might be a spoiler, since it's his clever "throwing the saxophone at an alien" that saves the day at the end of the novel. I really wish I was joking about that.

Did I mention that, while the marines are surrounded by thousands of hostile aliens, with only an extremely new and experimental force field protecting them, they spread their food out on the ground to have a fun picnic? Did I mention they set up a game of horseshoes? They also stroll leisurely through the hive of the Queen Mother, discussing such things as their personal life, their sex life, and the various moral issues arising from this drug collecting scheme. When one of them *does* die from the inevitable alien ambush, I was just relieved that maybe they'd shut up now.

This book is one of the worst books I've ever read. The writing is terrible, the alien fan material is flat-out wrong (based on the other books in the same series, books that this novel is supposed to be a direct sequel to), and the action genuinely does not exist. You will never feel any suspense while reading this novel, simply because it isn't here. Pass on this book, and go back to the last three novels and to Wilks and Billie.

This was a terrible book. I couldn't even finish it, I forced myself to read through about 3 quarters of the way and all it did was bore me. Why do all these books have to be more about the military than the aliens? This book was in no way imaginative, it wrote off Billy, Wilks and Ripley like they were nothing. They make drugs out of alien corpses and "royal jelly" all of this sounded interesting enough but even the three quarters of the book I read through they still hadn't even encountered an actuall live alien except for one flashback that started the book off and setting up the Kozlowski character. Speaking of characters, this book had no characters of any interest, they all seemed to be characters from the films with names of the actors from the movies. It had an nice little action piece that could have been really suspenseful where a soldier goes berzerk on the designer drug called Xeno-Zip (it's made of alien stuff, hence the name) and he becomes a one man war machine and rips apart an entire base and all it's soldiers, this would have been almost suspensful and entertaining but it wasn't, this was highly due to that fact that the characters were so lifeless it really didn't matter whether they lived or died. It was a sad attempt at a follow up to the fantastic Earth Hive series. I'll never understand. Do yourself a favor and not buy this book.
Instead try the Earth Hive series for good aliens novels.
