Aliens: Recent Encounters by Alex Macfarlane
June 25, 2013 (Prime Books)

Under the countless billions of stars in the universe, what forms will alien life take? How will they live? And what will happen when we meet them? Aliens: Recent Encounters collects answers to these questions from some of today's best science fiction writers. From first encounters to life alongside aliens - and stories of the aliens' own lives - here are many futures: violent and peaceful, star-spanning and personal. Only one thing is certain: alien life will defy our expectations.

I've been looking to work a little more sci-fi into my reading lately, and I am always a sucker for a good alien encounter or first contact story. Looking forward to this one, for sure.


  1. Nice! Haven't read too many alien books, besides the Roswell tie in series from the TV show years ago, and the Lux books. Both which are entirely different from this, so probably not even worth comparing!

    Hope you enjoy this one once you read it!

    Here's my WoW

    Have a GREAT day!

  2. Great pick! I love sci-fi, but I can't seem to get to it & read it as much as I'd like to. And these sound so good!

  3. Sounds like an interesting read. Enjoy it!

    Thank you for stopping by My Book Addiction

  4. I am trying to get more into sci-fi as well. I may need to check this one out. Thanks for sharing!

  5. This sounds like a really interesting book. I bet there are some great answers to those questions in there. So many different opinions on how aliens would appear if they were to come to earth. Enjoy! Jaclyn @ JC's Book Haven
