Meanwhile, Aliens 5 has been stuck in development hell, leaving only the hybrid Aliens vs Predator franchise to fill the void, the first movie a cheesy but entertaining cold-weather adventure movie and the second largely set in the sadly generic (and murky!) sewers of a Colorado town. As for the books, Jeff's Predator: South China Sea is out this month, as well as Brian Evenson's Aliens: No Exit. So, to mark that release, we thought we'd offer a contest for io9 readers. Both Jeff and Brian had to pitch Dark Horse their novel ideas, so now it's your turn, just for fun. It's Halloween, after all. So: Write up your own short Predator or Aliens pitch in comments. Limit it to a paragraph or so. You can be serious or funny. You can only enter once. The deadline is midnight EST next Friday, November 7. We'll judge the contest. Check back Monday, November 10, when we announce the four winners. Each winner will get a Predator figurine/ink stamp and copies of both Predator: South China Sea (signed) and Aliens: No Exit. Have a great Halloween!
