OvomorphMember0 XPApr-09-2012 4:07 PMi was a bit curious about the ever growing fan-base that PROMETHEUS has here and i was wondering how many of you will care to buy the novelization of PROMETHEUS should one happen to come out sometime before, or sometime after the film is finally released i myself have read the novelizations ALIEN / "Aliens" / Alien3, and i plan on doing the same for PROMETHEUS should it get this treatment if they do put out a PROMETHEUS audio book on iTunes, i will happily purchase that one. anyone else here interested in experiencing PROMETHEUS in book form, whether it'd be paperback or audio...? (if this had already been discussed, block my this thread) thanx

OvomorphMember0 XPApr-09-2012 4:19 PMI would because I read books more often than I watch movies or TV. I just hope it isn't to soon before the movie. I think books are released a month or a couple weeks before a theatrical release sometimes.


OvomorphMember0 XPApr-09-2012 4:26 PMi am the opposite (sadly), i can count how many books i've read in my adult life on both hands, 3 of which have all been ALIEN related, but i will say that i have read thousands and thousands of graphic books, so i am hoping there is a balance in that regard i read "Aliens" 24 hours before i saw the film, same with Alien3. which i think lent itself to be being severely disappointed in both of those films i think i will wait until after i've seen PROMETHEUS to experience the novelization, i don't want to spoil it for myself


OvomorphMember0 XPApr-09-2012 4:29 PMI read a ton, which is good and bad for something like this. I love to read, but years of reading recreationally has made it harder for me to read poorly written material. I'd love to read a well-written version of this movie, but I doubt a talented science fiction writer, or fiction writer, would do it. Do great authors do stuff like this? I guess I'm not familiar with post-script novelizations. I know 2001 was written at the same time as the script, but that was Kubrick and Clarke.


OvomorphMember0 XPApr-09-2012 4:41 PMyeah, 2001 isn't like modern novelizations. I read AVP before it came to the big screen and actually was excited because on paper the story is kind of cool but it just went horribly wrong somewhere. : ( I can't name an author that is well known that has written a movie novelization, but just because I can't remember one right now dosn't mean it hasn't happened.


OvomorphMember0 XPApr-09-2012 4:45 PMi read very little the last book i read was the da vinci code but talking tape or audio books love them normally have one on the go so if prometheus come out as an audio book it would deffenatly be on my buy list !


OvomorphMember0 XPApr-09-2012 5:02 PMI still have my Dan O'bannon Alien novel! Read it after seeing the film,my first rated-R film.Scared the crap out of me.As a matter of fact,I remember my smart-ass blamed the film for why I got high after getting caught smoking weed a few years later.Mom and Dad didn't buy it.


OvomorphMember0 XPApr-09-2012 5:27 PMIn the Alien franchise, I've only read the first novelization and enjoyed it. Regarding Prometheus, it all depends on how much I enjoy the film and if I think a novel would help to clarify "foggy" (if any) aspects.


OvomorphMember26 XPApr-09-2012 5:44 PMAs I said in a similar post I did some weeks ago, I think Alan Dean Foster would do a superb novelisation of Prometheus.


OvomorphMember0 XPApr-09-2012 8:34 PMTimothy Zahn is ok for that stuff as well. He wrote the only "Star Wars" books worth even considering reading.


OvomorphMember0 XPApr-09-2012 8:38 PMHas anyone heard any news of a Prometheus novelization? I scoured the internet and the only movie tie-in I found was the art of Prometheus book. @Shane - Timothy Zahn's Star Wars books are fantastic!


OvomorphMember0 XPJun-09-2012 9:19 AMSure. I'll read it.

FacehuggerMember158 XPAug-06-2012 1:01 PMI would read the crap out of a Prometheus novelization. Saw the movie 3 times in the theater. I love dark Sci-fi, so this has turned into my new favorite movie, heh. I agree about Alan Dean Foster. I'm a big Riddick fan and he wrote the novelization for Chronicles and it's quite good. A novelization would be the perfect way to fill in the gaps for those of us who want to know more.


OvomorphMember0 XPAug-07-2012 3:08 AMI'd read the novelisation now, as long as it was a three-book job. Hint, hint.
2013 sci-fi horror novels 'Custodian' and 'Tandem' available from Amazon, B&N, iTunes etc...
