13 Spacey Stories About Aliens And Those Who Believe…

| Right | April 26, 2022

On May 25, 1979, the world discovered that in space… no one can hear you scream. Yes, the film Alien was released to an unsuspecting audience (unsuspecting of that dinner scene at least) and now xenomorphs, facehuggers, and Ellen Ripley are part of the cultural consciousness. Another interesting aspect of the original movie that has stayed with us is the name of the planet in which the (mostly) doomed characters first pick up their leggy stowaway: LV-426. As a result, 4/26 has commonly become an Alien day among the film’s fans, just like May 4th is to Star Wars fans and 17/01 is to Star Trek fans.

And so, to get into the spirit of the day, we present to you from the NAR archives thirteen stories about Aliens, from the bleeding-acid kind to those you can find on your X-Box. Enjoy, but remember there are still some pretty crazy customers in here that might eat some brain cells… we can’t lie to you about your chances, but you have our sympathies…
